The accolades recently received by Bangor University make it an intelligent choice for would-be students to take their LLM from its prestigious Law School. Founded in 1884, Bangor University is one of the UK's oldest and most renowned institutions. Students worldwide have graduated from Bangor over the 120 years that it has been providing a high standard of education.
Very recently, Bangor placed 2nd and 8th among non-specialist Wales and UK universities, respectively, based on the National Student Satisfaction survey. It shows that its students are quite happy and satisfied during their stay at the university. This was in line with the recent award received by Bangor, i.e., a Gold Standard in Teaching Excellence Framework provided by the UK government. Bangor is the only Welsh university to have acquired this standard.
Bangor Law School is currently offering 14 Master level programs in law, nine of which are new offerings. Prospective students may choose from the following specialist LLM degrees:
- General Law LLM
- LLM in International Commercial & Business Law
