Location Description

Bangor University, founded in 1884, is located on the north west coast of Wales. The location is one of the most beautiful university settings in the whole of the UK – situated between the Snowdonia Mountains and the Menai Strait. Have a look at the Bangor and the area photo gallery.

National University of Ireland (NUI) Galway has been around since 1849. Galway is located on the west coast of Ireland and is well located for visits to Connemara, the Burren, and the Cliffs of Moher. You may have seen parts of the town in Ed Sheeran's video '"Galway Girl".
