    MY HONEST DESCRIPTION OF MY TIME AT BANGOR UNIVERSITY AS A PSYCHOLOGY UNDERGRADUATE

    Very highly ranked against other universities for my subject with a lower entry grade. Outside of a major city which I wanted, living most of your life in London is a real pain and I needed a getaway.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Mostly useful and interesting, however, I did sit through a few bogus courses/modules. E.G. a mandatory speech class in which no constructive criticism was given because no one wanted to offend one another. But you would receive 100% in it just for attending and giving your speech, regardless of how well you gave your speech.
