Study in a safe, student-friendly city


Bath is the safest university town or city in England and Wales (The Complete University Guide) and was listed as one of the World's Greatest Places by TIME magazine in 2021. It is even a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to its Roman heritage and Georgian architecture.

But there’s much more to Bath than its iconic buildings and history. A vibrant range of shops, bars and restaurants, music venues, museums, and festivals makes it a great place to live as a student.

A well-connected campus

Our campus is on the edge of the city. You can travel between the city and the campus easily by foot, bike, car, or bus. Local transport links mean you’ll be:

  • 80 minutes from London and its international airports
  • 15 minutes from Bristol
  • 2 hours from Birmingham

‘Coming here felt like really being at home straight away; you live on campus and so many other students are in the same boat. I’ve had a good time.’
