University of Bath


At Bath we are known for excellence in teaching and research; a superb student experience; and providing outstanding preparation for the workplace.

Bath is a top ten UK university in 3 national league tables (Guardian University Guide 2022, The Complete University Guide 2022 and The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021). It is ranked first in England in the National Student Survey 2021 among institutions listed in the Guardian University Guide and sixth for graduate prospects in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021.

Our courses are designed to provide both rigorous intellectual challenge and real-world relevance, giving our students the opportunity to study with researchers who are leaders in their field.

87% of our research is world leading or internationally excellent (REF 2014) so your studies will be informed by some of the most exciting and innovative ideas around, from helping children with chronic pain, protecting us from cyber-attacks, improving access to justice to autistic people, to researching ways to help with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our vibrant campus, and location right on the edge of the city of Bath, provide superb sporting, social and cultural opportunities. We are one of the safest campus sites in the UK and one of the first universities in the country to win a national police approved security award.

Join our close-knit, high-achieving community to gain the knowledge, skills and experience you’ll need to thrive in a world of global networks.

The Campus
The campus has all the local amenities you could ask for including shops, banks and a post office just five minutes from campus accommodation.

In the last decade, we have invested over £450 million in our campus. This includes new accommodation, academic buildings and sport facilities such as a Olympic legacy swimming pool and a newly-opened gym and fitness centre expanded across three floors.

Set amongst green fields, the campus is only one mile from the city centre. You can catch a train to London (only 90 minutes away), or pop into Bristol (only 10 minutes by train).

Student Life
We have around 16,000 students with a split of 55% male and 45% female. A third of our students are international and represent over 100 nationalities. Our award winning Students’ Union is one of the best in the country. There are more than 160 clubs, societies and student groups to get involved in, from cultural and politics societies to arts and sports clubs.

And if you have any issues then our Student Services Centre at the heart of campus offers a range of support services including welfare, immigration advice, counselling, financial advice and support for students with disabilities.

The City
Bath is a cosmopolitan city with a rich cultural heritage and  is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list twice; for its historic architecture and as one of the Great Spas of Europe.

Small enough to explore on foot, you can discover its beautiful stone buildings and the natural hot springs which gave the city its name. Indulge yourself in year-round arts festivals, museums, galleries and the spa and get involved with the local community with our great volunteering opportunities.
