(Student Profile)

Hannah Rettie

My name is Hannah Rettie, I’m 22 and from Abergele in North Wales and I’m currently studying and MRes in Psychology.

Why Bangor?

I originally chose to study at Bangor because of the amazing location, and the quality of the Psychology course. I enjoyed my time as an undergraduate here so much I decided it would only be right to stay on for my masters!
The course…

I really enjoy my course – the lecturers are extremely supportive and will always make time for you. The opportunities I have had from my course have been incredible – I’ve been able to hold a human brain, go in an MRI scanner, and conduct an applied project in my area of interest.
Life at Bangor…

I really enjoyed living in halls as an undergraduate - there was a great atmosphere to the place and you really felt part of a community. I can imagine it’s even better now they have Canolfan Brailsford on site.
Clubs and Societies…

I am involved with student volunteering, and have been volunteering on numerous projects within Bangor for four years. I have also recently joined the pole fitness society! The fact that the clubs and societies here are free to join has allowed me to try things I wouldn’t have tried before, and increased my social circle.
Representing Bangor at the What Uni Student Choice Awards

The food and venue was extremely posh! I had a great time at the What Uni Awards with excellent company, and meeting Hugh Dennis was an experience! Being able to go to London for the first time as well was very exciting for me.

Bangor definitely deserved an award, it is an excellent university that I would recommend to anyone and I plan on staying here as long as possible.
Best thing about Bangor?

It’s everything I could have wanted from a university. It’s extremely friendly, the courses are of high quality and there are so many opportunities to get involved.

(Student Profile)

Lucas Michaut

Academic Background:

2009-2010: Exchange year, BA(Hons) Marketing, UCLAN, Preston, UK
2007-2011: Master in Marketing. Montpellier, France

Did you take up your postgraduate course straight after your first degree?

Yes, straight away, I finished my Master in France, did a 5-month work placement (part of my masters), and then applied and came to Bangor

Why did you choose this course at Bangor?

Because it is one of the very few consumer psychology masters in Europe (I didn’t check in France though, as I wanted to go anywhere but stay in France), and the School of Psychology in Bangor is well known and excellent.
What's the course teaching you that your first degree did not?

Everything related to psychology. Even if I had personally looked some psychology related paper during my undergrad for my personal knowledge I haven’t had the opportunity to attend any psychology related modules during my undergrad.

How are you funding the course?

Family funding

What job do you hope to have when you have finished?

In the short term I want to take a gap year, and later on apply for a PHD.

Do you think the course has improved your job prospects?

For an academic career obviously as it is the better way to access a PHD.

For a professional career, I would say yes as well, first of all because the topic I’m studying is very appealing for marketing related employers as they need a lot of psychologists, moreover numerous opportunities are given in Bangor to test our skills, meet people and so enhance our chance to get a job (e.g. Enterprise by Design, Social enterprise accelerator, Brolio/the pitch, Big Idea Wales).

Best things about studying at Bangor?

-The psychology related lectures and modules on the course are my favourites.
-The people I met here, either academics and friends.
-My house and housemates, we are 13 living in a house and we have a lot of fun together.
-Nights out in Bangor, as even if the clubs are not as good as ones in big cities we still have loads of fun, and sometimes a great party pops up (mostly in Hendre Hall)
-The opportunities to do extra curricula activities (related to study or work)
-The hockey Club, and sports clubs in general
-The gorgeous landscape surrounding the university (Pier, Hills, Snowdonia, Anglesea, … ), and the wonderful university buildings
