Whilst Covid-19 continues to present us all with challenges, we feel passionately about offering students the very best opportunities to support their learning and development, and to enable them to prepare for the important next steps in their education.

We have a range of Year 12 opportunities, which have been designed to offer choice and flexibility whilst complimenting their learning at school or college and developing the skills for success in higher education.

These programmes are all designed for students who meet our widening participation criteria. They also all offer the opportunity for students to gain a reduced offer to study at Bath, and new for this year will support students in developing their employability skills through workshops with our corporate partner, Santander.

On Track to Bath

On Track to Bath is a one-year, blended learning programme, which will support students living within an hour of Bath to develop their independent learning, academic research and employability skills, and will help them to make an informed choice about future university courses. Students spend time on campus and undertake their own research project with the support of some of our academic staff and current students.

Pathway to Bath

Pathway to Bath is a flexible, online curriculum enrichment programme which gives students the chance to develop important key skills for university study by completing their own research project (or similar) while working alongside experienced university staff and current students. The programme includes a summer residential visit to our beautiful campus, to experience all that university life has to offer (Covid-19 restrictions permitting).

Discover Bath

A summer programme which aims to give students a taste of first-year life and study at Bath. The focus is on a 4-day summer school, where students will work on university level work and students will have some work to do before and afterwards to make the most of the experience.
