Overview

Bath Spa University focuses primarily on arts and humanities subjects and was founded in its most original form in 1852 before officially becoming a university in 2005. Bath Spa has several campuses in and around the city, with the main centre being Newton Park, completed in 2014, which features some of the best digital media related teaching facilities in the UK.

Bath Spa University is home to just over 7,500 students from over 40 different countries. This relatively small size means that Bath Spa remains a personal and intimate university with strong focus on teaching and student welfare. Student satisfaction is currently 89% across all subjects, while teaching is rated 90% positive.

Bath Spa University was recently crowned one of the top six creative universities in the UK by ‘Which? University’ Guide, with activities such as music, theatre, dance, choirs and visual arts playing a large part of university life.

Services for International Students

The Student Support Service can offer advice on immigration procedures, travel, accommodation and other information that may be required. The service also offers pre-departure briefings, visa support and an international orientation week at arrival. The Student Union has a dedicated International Student Representative and trips to London and events such as film nights and parties are organised by the International Relations office.

Location

Bath is a World Heritage City (one of only three cities in the world to be on UNESCO's World Heritage List) with striking views, beautiful parks and iconic architecture. The Roman Baths date back almost 2,000 years and can still be visited today.

Regular ninety-minute train services run directly into central London, and Bristol is only ten minutes away by train, offering connections to the rest of the UK. Bath is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with the Cotswolds, the Mendips and the Wye Valley all within easy reach. The west of England is the UK's most popular tourist destination.
