About

Research at Bangor University has a strong track record of delivering impact. Impact can be seen as economic, societal and cultural benefits. Impact not only adds value to the research portfolio, but also enriches the intellectual and personal development of our staff and students. The effects of impact are wide-ranging: staff at Bangor have had the opportunity to experience first-hand how plant breeding affects the lives of impoverished farmers in Northern India and East Africa; to work closely with a specialist university in China to develop state-of-the art broadband technology; and to develop culturally sensitive methodologies for dealing with violence in mental health in India.

These engagements not only support the research of our staff, but also deepen their understanding of economic and societal issues overseas, and how their research can lead to benefits; whether they be environmental (understanding the importance of biodiversity), policy-based (impact upon Government), and economic (product performance and value).We believe strongly in supporting the academic development of our postgraduates.

Our Early Researcher Development Programme (ERDP) provides training and workshops that will help you develop and maintain the key research, vocational and entrepreneurial skills necessary to meet the demands of your future career.From the moment you arrive, you’ll be given as much help and support as possible with health and welfare matters as well as with your academic work. Our Student Support Services centre provides a one-stop-shop for advice and guidance on matters from money and housing to disability support, counselling and local faith provision.Your work-life balance can be key to the success of your postgraduate study. Situated between the mountains, lakes and forests of the Snowdonia National Park and miles of dramatic coastline, Bangor provides one of the most attractive study locations in the UK, and is a great base for all kinds of outdoor sports and activities.
