I learned so much during my study abroad experience both in class and out. I gained a lot of independence and discovered that I was capable of a lot more than I ever gave myself credit for. I absolutely loved my experience in Bangor and found it incredibly worthwhile. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned to appreciate what I had at home. I also learned a great deal about the local British culture how much it differed from ours. I learned how to adequately live on my own, without all the amenities. I feel that this experience was one of the best learning experiences of my life and was very much worthwhile. - Austin College View Entire Review

Past Review Phenomenal!
I learned I was able to live independently much more than I thought I'd be able to. My experience was better than I could have ever hoped for. There was a strong outdoor component that I enjoyed much more than I thought I would, given that I had no previous experience with many of the activities I did - Trinity University View Entire Review

I think this experience was definitely worthwhile. I gained lots of memories and experiences that I had never had before, got to travel a lot, and made wonderful friends with people around the globe.

About

Bangor is a small city with a big backdrop – Snowdonia National Park, known as the most beautiful national park in the United Kingdom.  The city of 12,000 in northwest Wales is not on most tourists’ itineraries, making it a window into an authentic kind of rural life that treasures both education and the environment.  

Bangor is considered one of the U.K.’s best university locations, situated between the mountains of Snowdonia and the Irish Sea and offering some of the finest beaches and most beautiful scenery in the country.  North Wales is an area of outstanding natural beauty, yet close to major cities such as Manchester and Liverpool, so travelling to and from Bangor is easy, with London also easily accessible by direct train.
