Another successful Applicant Visit Day on a Saturday

Over 400 prospective students and their guests attended an Applicant Visit Day last Saturday (21st April), giving them a chance to find out more about their course, department and the University before deciding whether to choose Bath.

Talks given by the Students’ Union, Student Services and the Academic Skills Centre were very popular, as were accommodation tours. Students benefited from a programme of activities organised by departments including subject presentations and Q&As and campus tours with current undergraduate students. The prospective students were able to get a real flavour of what studying and life is like at Bath from our student ambassadors.

Mike Nicholson, Director of Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach said:

“There was a great atmosphere on the day. It was noticeable from the conversations I had that holding the event on a Saturday encouraged a much greater geographical spread of attendees, with applicants travelling from Newcastle, Blackpool, Spain, Switzerland and even New York to find out more about their course and the University in advance of making their final decision.”

Robbie Pickles (Head of UK and International Undergraduate Student Recruitment) commented:

"It is increasingly clear that offer holders benefit from hearing about what Bath has to offer alongside departmental and faculty information, with exceptional demand for accommodation tours and admissions information. It was clear on the day that students from a wide range of backgrounds took advantage of the Saturday to travel from further afield to find out more about Bath."

The University is very grateful to all staff and students in the run-up to the event and who were involved on the day.
