Biosciences Applicant Visit Days

We normally run Applicant Visit Days for our undergraduate degree offer holders between January and May. Find out why you should attend one.

After you receive an offer to study one of our undergraduate courses, we'll email you to invite you to an Applicant Visit Day.

We're offering a range of virtual and in-person Applicant Visit Days between January and May. You'll be given the option to choose between a Virtual Applicant Visit Day between January and March, or an on-campus Applicant Visit Day in April or May.

If you can't make it to an Applicant Visit Day on campus, you’ll also have the opportunity to visit us and explore our campus as part of a separate Applicant Campus Visit in April or May 2022. We'll send you more details on these visits in your invitation email.

Find out more about your course and the University

The aim of the day is to help you in your decision making.

Our Applicant Visit Days provide more subject-focussed information than University Open Days, giving you a real insight into what it's like to study Biology, Biochemistry or Biomedical Sciences here.

Whether you attend an Applicant Visit Day on campus or virtually, you'll get the opportunity to listen to talks on the course and department. You’ll meet our academic staff and current students where you'll get the chance to ask them any questions you have and find out more about the work you’ll be doing if you study here.

If you join us for an Applicant Visit Day in person, you'll also get the chance to take a look around our teaching facilities.

Safety and wellbeing on the day

If you're attending an Applicant Visit Day on campus, we strongly encourage you to wear a face covering during the day while indoors. We also advise you take a lateral flow test before the event and to not attend if the result is positive.

What to expect from an Applicant Visit Day

Our Applicant Visit Days will give you all the information you need to decide if the University of Bath is for you!

Learn what student life is really like

No one knows what it’s like to be a biosciences student at Bath better than our current students.

They’ll be there on the day to answer any questions you have and to chat to you about their experiences.

Campus life isn't just about studying and there are many ways that you can make the most of your university experience. If you plan on visiting Bath, you could visit our Sports Training Village (STV), where you'll have access to the same facilities used by Olympic athletes. You could also see our Students' Union, food outlets, campus pub and night club, as well as our arts centre (The Edge) ​where you can take dance, art and music classes.

Visit the City of Bath

The City of Bath is only a short bus ride away from campus, so why not take a look around when you visit us?

Living in Bath means you get all the convenience of living in a vibrant, historic city but with a friendly and safe community atmosphere.

Students make up around a quarter of the city of Bath's population and there is so much on offer!

How to get to our Applicant Visit Days on campus

The best ways to get to our campus from the city centre are by bus, cycling or walking.

There is parking available on campus but spaces are limited so we recommend using public transport where possible.
