On Friday, 12 August and Saturday, 13 August, Bangor University hosted a group of 44 Chevening Scholars for Chevening's second overnight event in Wales. Scholars enjoyed a weekend of culture and outdoor activities in an area of stunning natural beauty in the UK.

The group learned about the history and culture of Wales from experts at Bangor University. They then visited the impressive Caernarfon Castle before trying out a traditional Welsh folk dance, the twmpath, in the evening.

The following day, the group set off early to ascend Mount Snowdon through Snowdonia National Park. By the time scholars reached the summit, it was unfortunately shrouded in mist, but this didn't cloud their spirits.

If you like the sound of this trip, why not apply to study at Bangor University, where you can spend a year in north Wales. Applications are now open on our website.
