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 (Guardian University Guide 2021 and The Complete University Guide 2021), ranked fourth in The Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2018 and awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework.

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 developing new drugs to cure breast cancer, working with the automotive industry in order to develop future generations of ultra-low emissions vehicles, to combating modern slavery.

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.

We have invested over £215m in our new city centre learning zone, student accommodation, academic buildings and the 50m Olympic legacy pool situated in the stunning Sports Training Village, which is home to medal-winning Olympic athletes, and open to students for elite and recreational sport.

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 only one of three cities in the world to be included on UNESCO’s World Heritage list.

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.
