BANGOR University is Wales’ best, according to voters in a national survey.

The university topped the National Student Survey’s figures for student satisfaction, and was joint seventh in the UK’s non-specialist universities.

Professor Oliver Turnbull, pro vice-chancellor for teaching and learning at Bangor University, said: “Bangor has a 130 year tradition of providing excellent teaching and student care, and this is borne out by these wonderful results.

“We're particularly delighted that the poll places us so clearly as top in Wales.”

The results are drawn from the National Student Survey, a poll of around 500,000 graduating students at each university in the UK.

Professsor Turnbull added: “We've recently introduced initiatives to give students a stronger voice in the University, and the success of our approach is reflected in these results.

“These results are a wonderful endorsement of our activities, and of our values.

"When we compare our University with others teaching a broad range of higher education subjects, it's terrific that we are top 10 in the UK, and in overall satisfaction that we now lie level with other traditional universities such as Glasgow, Durham, and indeed both Oxford and Cambridge.

“It's a position which again reflects the excellent standard of teaching available at Bangor.”
