Occupying a compact and purpose-built campus overlooking the World Heritage City of Bath, the University is a modern and inspiring place to study. Our campus is built around a central point, meaning everything is within easy reach and giving a strong feeling of community.
The Postgraduate Association & Students' Union
The Students' Union is home to a wide variety of sports and arts societies as well as providing entertainment and events. A new Student Centre was opened in October 2010 and provides more social space and facilities for students on campus.
We provide a wide range of training. You can learn how to do anything from speaking a new language, to presenting yourself and your work to best advantage.
For postgraduates with teaching responsibilities, there is now an intensive teaching development programme.
“At the University of Bath we take the development of our research postgraduates very seriously. Developing your skills is key to becoming an effective researcher and to making a successful transition into your future career.”
Our postgraduates have a dedicated social and informal work space at the heart of the campus. The Graduate Centre has been designed with your needs in mind.
The Centre has wireless connectivity, soft seating, informal work space, seminar and meeting rooms. There are kitchen facilities and a large screen television. The Centre is a place to meet colleagues, attend training and events, or just to sit, relax and read.
The Library and Learning Centre
The Library is the first 24 hour Library and Learning Centre in the UK - meaning you can always get access to the many reference and computing facilities available and work in a way which suits you.
We have over 500,000 books and periodicals and we invest heavily in electronic journals and databases. Research published by members of the University is stored in an electronic repository so it is instantly available to all.
We have over 1000 computers across the library and our four general access computing labs. In addition, many departments have their own computing labs and there are terminals in the foyers of most buildings - whether you want to check email or write your thesis, computing access is always available.
Alternatively, you can connect to the wireless network anywhere in the main areas of campus or the coffee shops.
