2. When to apply

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 mid-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.

3. How to apply 

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.

Entry requirements

These requirements will vary from subject to subject. You also need to look at course entry requirements in our undergraduate and postgraduate prospectuses.

Scholarships and funding

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:

International Scholarships Scheme

The International Relations Office provides 75 masters scholarships worth £3,000. This will be offered as a discount in tuition fees. The scholarships are for one year only.

 

Research Degree Scholarships

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.

US Loans

The University of Bath is recognised as a Foreign School by the US Department of Education and holds a Title IV Agreement to award US Federal Loans for study in the UK. Our school code is G11679. Our website provides guidance for US students about accessing federal and private loans to fund their studies at the University of Bath.

Some students may wish to explore private loans through Sallie Mae, these loans are usually less favourable in their lending terms compared to Title IV Loans.

US Loans are administered at Bath by our Admissions and Funding Office.  The Finance and Funding teams also offer general finance and funding information.
