Many other students from back home in my country of Saudi Arabia recommended Bangor university to me. Lots of my friends back home have come to study here at Bangor over the past few years and they all liked it here and said I should come here too. Therefore I decided to come here to study too, in the hope I would have as good as an experience myself.
