Undergraduates can apply from 1 September onwards and should complete their applications by the middle of January. You do not need to have completed your high school education in order to apply. We may make you a conditional offer setting out the level of performance we expect in your remaining examinations and assessments.
Masters candidates may apply from 31 October onwards. This includes students in the final year of their degree studies as we can offer a place on a conditional basis.
Students interested in a research degree may apply at any time and we can offer admission at various points throughout the year. Most students prefer to begin their studies at the start of the academic year in October.
It is important to consider your career options when deciding where to study.
The University of Bath offers support and careers guidance to home and international students as well as assistance in finding part-time work:
During your studies it is important to feel involved with university life. You will find a range of societies here where you can meet people and participate in events and social occasions.

Masters level qualification from a prestigious university
If you are seeking admission to one of our research degrees (MPhil/PhD) then a masters level qualification will generally be needed to satisfy our application requirements.
Evidence of some research experience (for example through a masters degree that included a thesis component or work as a research assistant) is often expected.
In addition to the standard application papers, a research proposal is essential, outlining how you intend to go about your research.
Certified transcripts of all previous degree-level studies must accompany your application.
All students need to demonstrate their proficiency in English in order to enroll, this may either be evidenced through school examinations, or as a result of undertaking an English language test, usually TOEFL or IELTS.
In most cases a specific test of English such as TOEFL will not be needed, although sometimes it is requested from non-native English speaking international students who are currently studying in Australia.
Prospective international students are eligible for a number of scholarships. Most of these are for postgraduate taught students. Departments may also offer specific scholarships for their students. Find out more about Scholarships and Bursaries.
These are some of the scholarship and funding options available to students from your country:
We have 75 scholarships available worth £3,000 each, for international students who are planning to take a postgradaute taught degree at Bath.
You must have already accepted an offer to study on one of our Masters programmes to be eligible to apply. The award is offered as a discount in tuition fees and is valid for one year only.
For MPhil/PhD students we provide both full and partial research degree scholarships and these are awarded on a competitive basis. Some are designated for certain research topics and others are offered on a university-wide basis. You may indicate that you wish to be considered for a scholarship on the research degree programme application form.
A number of external funding bodies exist to support masters level study in the UK and any applicant seeking support is strongly advised to explore potential sources of financial aid available in their own country.
Alternatively, there are international agencies, government departments, charitable organisations and private companies that may be able to provide financial aid for certain programmes of study and all are worth exploring.
You can also approach the British Council in your country to find out if they have any funding available.
