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 2020 and The Complete University Guide 2020), ranked fourth in The Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2018 and awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework.
Our academic programmes 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 international excellent (according to REF 2014) so your studies will be informed by some of the most exciting and innovative ideas across all fields.
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 – we were 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.
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.
The University boasts a vibrant international student community. Over 100 nationalities are represented among our 3,500 international students.
We know that moving to a new country and experiencing a different culture can be challenging. Here at Bath our International Student Advice Team can help to settle you in, including an international orientation programme and mentoring scheme to help students relax into life in the UK.
University of Bath alumni can be found occupying positions of influence in many countries and we seek to continue our association with former students long after they have graduated.
