How we are run
The Council is the governing body of the University.
Who we are
A leading university
Our campus, overlooking the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath, has a vibrant research culture driven by the enthusiasm and invention of our academic community.
Students are attracted by our excellent academic reputation, our outstanding graduate employment record, our world-class sports facilities, and the wide array of other social, recreational and personal development opportunities we offer.
Our ability to offer placement options across our discipline base, and with leading organisations, is unique among UK research-intensive universities.
We are sector leaders in the commercial exploitation of intellectual property (IP) and the establishment of international links for exploitation of IP.
Our mission is to deliver world-class research and teaching, educating our students to become future leaders and innovators, and benefiting the wider population through our research, enterprise and influence.
Our vision for 2016
In 2016 we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the award of our Royal Charter.
We will be recognised as an international centre of research and teaching excellence, achieving global impact through our alumni, research and strategic partnerships.
