Access to Bath

Access to Bath is an online programme that can lead to an alternative offer for eligible students.

The course can help you transition into higher education if you're from an under-represented group.

You can:

  • get to know the University and your subject area
  • follow along in your own time in a way that suits you
  • interact with other offer-holders

The scheme provides under-represented groups with an alternative offer; typically a reduced offer of one grade below the standard offer for the course you apply for.
