I am glad to say that the lecturers, tutors and support staff are more helpful and friendly. Bangor University has a higher reputation for teaching facilities. Students can enjoy with their studying.

We have an opportunity to gain knowledge of social policy from a different perspective. There are modules, such as key issues in Social Policy, research process and meaning & Society political & History of Karl Marx. Dissertation also the most interesting part of the MA programme. The best thing is the fantastic support of the staff and teaching facility in the School of History, philosophy and Social science.
