In light of the severe weather conditions affecting many parts of the UK we have decided to cancel this Saturday’s Applicant Visit Day.

Weather conditions in the Bath area are deteriorating and we expect heavy snowfall. There is a Red weather-warning in place for the South West and a decision has been taken to close the University as a result. Our Claverton Down campus is located on one of the hills overlooking the city of Bath and in heavy snow or ice the safety of those travelling to campus is our primary concern.

If you have been invited to come to this Applicant Visit Day, we will contact you next week with details of alternative opportunities for offer-holders to engage with the University including a potential rescheduled Applicant Visit Day held on a Saturday in March or April. We are also running a virtual Open Day on Saturday 17 March 2018. Applicant Visit Days continue to be held by academic departments during the working week.

If you have any further queries about your offer please feel free to contact us at

Please note there may be a slight delay in responding to you due to the closure of the University from 1 pm today.

Mike Nicholson, Director of Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach.
