Students whose first language is not English will be required to have achieved the marks listed below on one of the following English Language Tests:
- 6.5 overall in IELTS
- 237 in the computer based in TOEFL

The School of Management holds an introduction session for exchange students, at the beginning of each semester. The aim of these sessions is to welcome you, introduce you to members of staff involved with the academic exchange scheme and to help you through the first few days at Bath. The session also gives you a chance to meet other exchange students and to ask questions. Later on in the semester we hold a workshop on the UK‘s academic system, which will give you a better idea about what it is expected of you in terms of coursework, such as essay writing, exams and so on.
In addition to the events organised by the School of Management, the International Office arranges introductory sessions for all international students joining the University of Bath at the beginning of the semester. They also organise a social programme which you will be invited to participate in.
