Freshers week was the best first university experience I have had. I made my new friends, found my flatmates and met my fiance. I enjoyed everyday of exploring independent life and exploring the area that I study in. Freshers week was full of activities, tours, new meetings and amazing drunk nights which ended all the same, watching the sunrise on the beach. Freshers week is going be in my memories for a very long time!
I lived in halls and it was an amazing experience. Very comfortable, light, with lots of space and very good security. I lived on the sunny side and had a sunny room, with a well fitted ensuite and a big kitchen that I shared with very good students. The campus life was enjoyable and was filled with the student environment. I am very happy I got to experience the real independent student life with picnics, on campus gym and alarm testing in the middle of the night, something I will not forget!
In the first year, gym was included in the halls fee and I was also previleged to have a student shop and student bar on site. Very modern and very big facilities. This made my day to day life more interesting and relaxing after university studies
The course was and still is my favourite topic and I am still fascinated by all the aspects of it. Lecturers are very helpful and are always there to talk to. Some of the modules I found extremely exciting and interesting as they are the main modules that took my interest. Study room is big, modern and is full of new technology. Advantage of studying psychology is the advantage of participating in experiments, where I have access to the newest technology and to very interesting experiments such as MRI studies.
Bangor city life is nothing like any other city life. Bangor is sourrnded my mountains and Anglesey making it beautiful! Free days and weekends were always filled with beach bbq's and mountain climbing. Like no other cities, all the hangovers were treated by a walk to the top of the mountains and seeing the views of the place we live in. Like no othe city, our nights finished watching the sunrise. Out weekends were filled with more exploring and watching the sunset on the beachfront. Unlike other cities the money we have had from the loan was spent onto fuel and tickets to go placed such as secret lake or abandoned bunker which was the best and most memorable moments of our student life. Our student lives here at Bangor aren't just limited to studying and partying however is full of exploring, swimming, mountain climbing, diving and spending time with friends on the most beautiful beaches in anglesey.
Studying psychology is rewarding however very difficult. It is full of content and full of aspects involving everyone. A lot of punctuality is involved as a lot of work is done on your own in libraries or experiments. Maths is important in psychology as funny as that sounds, and it plays the most crucial role in any scientific research. Going to lectures is not just important but vital because there is nothing like spending time with course mates and watching top psychology professionals talk about the craziest experiments that are so unbelievable. No procrastination is allowed with psychology. Psychology involves so much content, that it cannot be postponed. Studying psychology is hard however the ideas, thoeires, studies and models that we learnt enable us to use them in our ordinary day to day life and when you see something that you know how it works, it is amazing and it makes you want to carry on studying this mind blowing subject
