Strong UK and global rankings

Bath is known for sporting excellence. Our sport, exercise and health courses are consistently highly ranked in major UK and worldwide independent league tables.

Fantastic sport, teaching and research facilities

Our £35 million Sports Training Village is the centre of sports on campus.

It's home to world-class facilities, including an Olympic-sized swimming pool, for more than 50 sports. It also contains fitness, coaching, physio and sports science facilities.

Many of these facilities are often used by leading sports teams from across the UK, as well as athletes training to compete in events like the Olympic Games.

In addition, the Department for Health has five dedicated research laboratories. We have a close connection between research and teaching theoretical knowledge. This ensures that what we teach you is directly related to practical application.

Study in a safe, student-friendly city

Bath is the 2nd safest university town or city in England and Wales (The Complete University Guide (2023)) and is 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
