Sport and Exercise Science
All applications for our Undergraduate programmes must be made through the UK's central applications service, UCAS. You apply online completing just one application for up to five courses. Guidance on how to apply is available from your school, college, Directgov Young People or local British Council Office.
Once you have sent your application to UCAS, the form will be considered the Sport and Exercise Science admissions team. Each application is given individual consideration, paying particular attention to the subjects studied, the reference and personal statement. The decision will be based on a number of factors, including academic achievement, and potential, your skills and aptitudes and your motivation and commitment.
Applications received before the UCAS deadline of 15 January 2012 will be given equal consideration. Applications received after this date are unlikely to be considered. A decision will be made on whether to make you an offer as soon as possible but in some cases your application may be held until after the 15 January so that it can be considered alongside other applications received before the deadline. You will be notified by UCAS as soon as a decision has been made and we will let you know if your application is being held.
The Department views gap years positively and we are happy to consider applicants who wish to defer their entry.

The purpose of the Sport and Exercise Science Open Day is to show applicants the facilities of Sport and Exercise Science and of the University of Bath, to let them meet some members of staff and current undergraduates, to tell them more about our programmes, and to answer any questions they may have. Open Days are generally by invitation only, and take place between November and March.
We strongly recommend visiting the University for an official open day as many facilities are on view, which are not available during an individual visit. However, if you are unable to attend an Open Day, we have an open campus so you are welcome to come and look around any time, however we regret that we are unable to accommodate drop-in visits to the Department. Overseas students may be able to visit by pre-arrangement with the Department.

Generally applicants will not be required to attend an interview, however, if you are offering unusual qualifications or it it some time since you have studied, you may be invited for an interview before a decision is made.
We do not have any standard additional tests. However in some circumstances we ask applicants to submit written work either before an offer is made or at interview.
