The Bangor Employability Award (BEA) offers free opportunities to gain and enhance the skills and experiences employers want and need, based on up-to-date research. BEA graduates earn a certificate, a transcript and formal verification of their extracurricular activities from Bangor University, so they can offer solid evidence of their accomplishments. All students are automatically enrolled for the Bangor Employability Award.


We are committed to improving the future job prospects and employability of our students; our internship schemes will provide opportunities for undergraduate students to gain paid, graduate level work experience in the University's Academic Schools and Service Departments. All undergraduate students are invited to apply for an internship, and full support is provided throughout the application and interview processes.
