For over one hundred and thirty years we have been at the forefront of teaching, learning and knowledge creation

Drawing students and staff from all over the world, we offer a vast pool of experience and capacity from our very diverse campus in Bangor as well as through our extensive collaboration with international universities.

We work in partnership with a wide range of organisations, businesses and community groups and have another great facility for students, staff, businesses and the wider community in Bangor University’s Pontio Arts and Innovation Centre in the heart of the city of Bangor.

Through our research, we have a major impact around the world according to the independent national assessment of research quality. In fact, more than three-quarters of Bangor’s research is either world-leading or internationally excellent. Our Research Impact Case Studies illustrates some additional examples of this high-quality research.

From the major contribution we make to protecting the environment, bilingualism, and improving health and wellbeing it is clear that the research carried out by Bangor academics is having a major economic impact as well bringing significant benefits to the lives of people around the world.

These are remarkably impressive results for us as an institution, and we’re determined to work with businesses to share this knowledge and expertise and to create wealth and opportunity for people in north Wales and beyond.

Bangor University recognises that working with business, industry and enterprise is of vital importance

  • Ensure real world relevance and impact of our work on economy and society (see our Research Home Page)
  • Provide our staff and students with work experience and professional development opportunities which improve their employment prospects and enhance their teaching.
  • Most importantly, help our business and industry partners become more innovative, develop and grow.


The University’s “Working with Business” web pages highlight how we can help through the provision of:

  • Business Facilities and Networks
  • Training and Continued Professional Development
  • Funding for Placement, Partnerships and Collaborative Research
  • Expertise and Knowledge Exchange
  • Recruitment and Development of Students and Graduates
  • Innovation and Enterprise Support


To view current programmes and initiatives, and for contact details of key staff that can help with each of the above, visit Working With Business.
