Make the right decision about where you want to study

After you receive an offer to study one of our undergraduate courses, we will invite you to one of our applicant visit days. We usually run these on Wednesdays between October and April to give you plenty of time to visit us before you decide where you want to study your degree.

Like our Department, our visit days are small and friendly. We don't interview you because we feel that your results tell us more about your ability than a formal interview process. We want you to enjoy the day and get to know about our courses and the Department in a relaxed environment.

You'll have opportunities to chat to our staff and students and ask any questions you may have. You'll also get to talk to other guests with the same interest in engineering as you.

Gain better insight into your course

You'll get the chance to meet some of the academic team who may teach you during your degree. Your day will include an introduction by our Head of Department and a talk by one of our academics. They will tell you more about how the course is structured and assessed, the topics you will study and other opportunities available to you.

Some of our current students are on hand during the day. They are at various stages of their degrees and can give you a full insight into their study experience in the Department and student life in Bath.

You will also hear from a member of our placements team. A placement year is optional on most of our courses and taken in the third year of study. You'll find out more about why you should consider a placement and the sort of companies where you could be employed.

See the spaces where you'll develop your skills

A department tour gives you access to the laboratories and learning spaces you'll use during your degree. You'll visit our project labs where third and fourth year students carry out their group and individual design projects. Our facilities and equipment enable students to build circuit boards, electric cars and autonomous unmanned vehicles. You'll see some of these completed projects during the day.

We also put on a demonstration of our annual event, the mouse race. This is a highlight of the second year where students design and build mini autonomous vehicles (mice) to compete against each other.

Get a feel for campus and city life

Our students will take you on a tour of the campus during your visit. It's a great chance to see what the campus is like on a typical day and experience the atmosphere of students and staff going about their business.

Campus life isn't just about studying and there are many ways that you can make the most of your university experience. As a taster, we'll take you round our Sports Training Village (STV), where you'll have access to the same facilities used by Olympic athletes. You'll see our Students' Union, which houses the Student Centre, food outlets and the campus pub and night club. We will also show you The Edge, our arts centre where you can take dance, art and music classes.

The city of Bath is only 10 minutes away by bus so we advise our guests to take the opportunity to visit the city after their day with us has finished.

Are you unable to attend an open day?

We offer you a range of dates so that you can choose to attend one that best suits you. If you don't live in the UK, we understand it may be difficult to visit the University on the dates given. If you contact our Department, we will do our best to arrange an individual visit for you.
