Undergraduates can apply from 1 September onwards and should submit their application 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.
Applications for all of our programmes of study can be made online.
You should apply through UCAS for all of our undergraduate programmes.
Postgraduates should apply directly to the University.
If you have already applied for a programme of study then you can check on your progress using Application Tracker.

We offer the one year International Foundation Year, which is ideal preparation for entering our undergraduate programmes.
A Level or International Baccalaureate (IB)
We welcome applications from students taking A Level examinations, the International Baccalaureate (IB) and certain other internationally recognised qualifications for direct entry into undergraduate courses.
Holders of the Pakistani Bachelors of Arts/Science/Commerce (Pass) may be considered for direct entry at undergraduate level.
Bachelors (Honours) degree of high standing may be accepted
We will consider students who have successfully completed a bachelors (honours) degree from an elite institution and achieved excellent grades. In certain instances a masters degree may be required.
Degrees must be from a recognised institution in Pakistan.
Details of the entry requirements for each of our postgraduate taught degrees are provided in the postgraduate prospectus.
Masters level qualification
We will consider exceptional high graded masters degree holders for PhD study.
Evidence of some research experience (for example through a masters degree project) is often expected and in addition to the standard application papers, you will need a research proposal outlining how you intend to go about your research.
To study on the International Foundation Year you will need a minimum IELTS score of 5.5.
The minimum English Language requirement for our undergraduate courses is IELTS 6.0 - 7.0 or an equivalent qualification.
All postgraduate taught applicants must meet our English requirements (IELTS 6.5-7.0). You can do this by taking IELTS exams or by attending a pre-sessional programme in our English Language Centre.
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 are offering 75 postgraduate scholarships worth £3,000. This will be offered as a discount in tuition fees. The scholarships are for one year only.
A number of external funding bodies exist to support Masters level study in the UK and we strongly advise any applicant seeking support to explore potential sources of financial aid available in your own country.
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.
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.
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.
It is important to consider your career options when deciding where to study. The University of Bath Careers Service offers support and careers guidance to international students as well as assistance in finding part-time work via Students' Union JobLink.
We have a dedicated International Student Advice Team which supports all our international students during their studies.
Our International Relations Office also provides support before you arrive and throughout your studies.
