Bath cityThe city

Bath is a lively, friendly, and historic city, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The city is home to global businesses and start-up companies, so you can find local employment opportunities while you study and when you graduate. Bath 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.

International students

The University has a vibrant international student community. 32% of students come from outside the UK, representing over 147 nationalities.

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 occupy positions of influence in many countries and we continue our association with former students long after they have graduated.
