Bangor University

One award is offered to pursue a one-year taught or research Master’s (or to provide funding for the first year of a Master’s or PhD degree program which is longer than one year) in the subjects of Celtic Studies, Creative Writing or Ocean Sciences at Bangor University in Wales.

Founded in 1884, Bangor University has a tradition of academic excellence and a strong focus on student experience. Around 11,000 students currently study at the University, with 650 teaching staff based within twenty three Academic Schools.

Bangor University is ranked in the top 40 in the UK for research, according to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. The REF recognised that more than three-quarters of Bangor’s research is either world-leading or internationally excellent, ahead of the average for UK universities.

Bangor’s location – close to the mountains and the sea – has been described as the best university setting in the UK. In 2016 North Wales was named as the 4th best region in the world to visit by the travel guide Lonely Planet due to its stunning location.
