Belong at Bath

(5)·By Holly A·Sports· Jun 2023
My experience at university has been by far a challenge. However it's been the best challenge I've ever stepped foot in. It's a land to escape into your talents and dive into your knowledge. If your planning on coming to uni. Don't delay what awaits you.

Politics / International Relations, Year 2

(5)·By Britt F·Politics· Jul 2021
Freshers week was such a good time, even though I was only 17 at the time. The daytime schedule was packed with activities you could attend and they made sure everyone was getting to know each other. The arena nights were particularly a lot of fun, as those are really the times when you get comfortable around your flat mates. I was in Norwood for my first year and I was completely happy with it. It might have not been the cleanest place, but that wasn't because of the cleaners - it was because of us being typical students. We had enough social space and our rooms were completely fine. The sports area is obviously great in Bath, every possible sport you can play in Bath. The student union was great as well, prices were good and the two club nights were just really convenient and fun. The library and classrooms are spacious and sufficiently modern. It was an informative course and made sure that everyone understood completely what was being taught. The lectures and lecturers were clear and very actively helpful with any questions you may had. Bath is probably one of the most beautiful places to live in in England. Although it is quite small and you can discover most of it in a few days, it also has a very homely feeling. The people are all very friendly and the shops are nice.

It was good. There were many opportunities to meet people on the course as well as freshers fairs and events to get to know as many people as possible. The accommodation was small considering there were 28 of us sharing one kitchen in my flat. It was always busy though and I enjoyed it regardless. The facilities are great. The library is 24 hours and the student union hosted great events too. There were a lot of places to eat on campus as well which was convenient. The lecturers were engaging and made me feel like I could go to them for help when I needed. They made the topics interesting and were always willing to help if more help was needed The city was really pretty and aesthetic. Especially at christmas time it is so pretty. The night life is decent and the clubs are fun and have good night events.

Really good, had plenty of time to keep on top of work and to go on plenty of nights out. A great balance Accommodation was good. Nice flat, good people, personal space was okay too Library is good. Sports facilities are amazing. Student union is average Lectures are recorded. Lecturers are often some of the top researchers in the field. Bath is a beautiful city. Good night life and amazing architecture

Really helpful Psychology department

(5)·By elsie p·Celtic Studies· Oct 2018
I think most people would say that Bath is an excellent university. I first came here to study for the MSc Health Psychology course. During the placement - which was brilliant! - I got involved with some research at the uni looking into how we communicate pain, so then went on to apply to study a PhD in the Pain Centre. All of the staff I had contact with were excellent and the teaching was great. The placement was a really good opportunity for me to get some experience in a real role and got me onto the next step as well! I'm now studying a PhD here and my supervisors are fantastic; the Psychology department has been so supportive. I've even been lucky enough to get funding from the department to attend conferences in Milan and Argentina. Aside from the excellent teaching, we also have some of the best sports facilities you can get(they were used in the 2012 Olympics). Because it's not a big university and classes are normally small, there is a friendly community here that is easy to get involved in. Obviously, the city itself is great too, really beautiful and a lot to do in the day and at night, plus Bristol is close enough for a big night out and always has lots of events on. There are also plenty of part-time job opportunities for students - the university has a good job website where you can find these. Also, the Psychology staff members have often seen job opportunities in the department and pointed them out to me. My PhD is a funded scholarship that I don't get a stipend for living expenses for, but I have always had a job around campus so haven't had to worry too much about the financial side of things, which makes life much easier!

Best Choice I Ever Made

(5)·By Ensola P·Sociology· Jun 2023
I had the best time at Bath University The staff are very considerate and are willing to go through anything with you. Even though Bath isn't like London, there is still so much to do, and a lot is offered. It was slightly confusing finding lecture rooms at first, but you will get used to it, and there are a lot of people there to help you with anything.

My overall experience has been 10/10, and I suggested my little brother go there.

Chemistry, Year 2

(5)·By Esme O·Chemistry· Jul 2021
Amazing. So many welcome events and opportunities to meet course mates and get help setting up for the new semester. Not all the accommodation on campus is as nice as mine was but a lot of the accommodation is lovely. Excellent fascilities. Lots of study spaces and modern lecture theatres. The best sports facilities out of any university. Well structured lectures and units, information about the course is easily accessible and the teaching is 5 star. Very welcoming city, bath is a small city so it is not overwhelming and it doesn't take long to find your way around.

Education / Teacher Training, Year 2

(5)·By Holly C·Education / Teacher Training· Jul 2021
so jam packed and everything i expected and more! they even put on a day trip to ikea! how awesome! fresher's was indeed a great way to meet new people and throw yourself into fun uni life. My accommodation (woodland court) was incredible, en suite bathroom and a small double bed. The laundry room was literally down the stairs and it didn't take long to walk to my lectures at all! Perfect accommodation . The gym at uni of bath is above paar, such generous space in the gym and so many different areas that everyone can find a space the feel happy working out in! Student union was really cool as the ‘tub' provided a relaxed bar like hang out in the day and turned into the ‘plug' at night = a spacious nightclub! My course, education with psychology, was perfect and lived up to my expectations. The unit's combined educational methods and concepts with interesting psychological underpinnings. All of my lectures were well experienced in this area and offered their own research and findings as evidence in the lectures! Bath is a wonderful city, the bus route into town only took about 10mins and ran frequently. There is such a good combination of city and green areas, with alexander park being a personal fave spot. There are plenty of supermarkets, including a lidl which is very amenable for a student budget! Could not recommend bath enough it has such a fresh, cool atmosphere.

I had a great time! Fortunately it was before the whole pandemic started so I could have a very normal Freshers Week. I made so many great friends and so many memories. It was a pretty old accommodation but I liked it a lot. I had a double bed and I had my own bathroom with a bathtub. The gym is extremely nice but very expensive. The library is old and often really full but a good place to study if you can find a spot. I really like how versatile my course is. We have so many different modules which means I can keep searching for an area of business that I actually really enjoy and night want to pursue later in life. Bath is very small, it's actually a bit too small for my liking. We have quite a few pubs and clubs though which were fun before corona came along.

University of Bath Review

(5)·By Hannah G·Languages· Jun 2023
I love University of Bath. It feels so much like a community with the beautiful campus. There is a good selection of first year accommodation which are reasonably priced and have great facilities. My course is very interesting and contemporary - focusing more on the current issues and politics that the respective countries face, not just solely the language and literature. There is also plenty to do on and off campus with hundreds of groups and societies to get involved in. There is something for everyone!
