Chemistry Applicant Visit Days

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

Please note, our Applicant Visit Days have now finished for the 2024 intake.

Please read on to learn more about how our Applicant Visit Day process works.

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

We strongly recommend you attend an Applicant Visit Day to gain real insight into what it’s like to study here. We're offering a mix of virtual and on-campus Applicant Visit Days to give you the opportunity to join us, whether you can make it to campus or not.

If you're living outside of the UK or are unable to make one of our Applicant Visit Days and would like to arrange an individual visit, please contact the Department and we'll do our best to accommodate you.

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

Our Applicant Visit Days provide more subject-focused information than University Open Days, giving you a real insight into what it's like to study Chemistry here.

Whether you attend an Applicant Visit Day in person 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.

Our Applicant Visit Days have now finished for this admissions cycle, however you can still visit our campus and take a guided tour.

'The labs were a big part of my decision to choose Bath. For me, it was important to have enough hours and experience in the lab to prepare for a possible industry job.' — Anna Stearn, Chemistry MChem with professional placement.

No one knows what it’s like to be a Chemistry student at Bath better than our current students. They’ll help answer your questions and chat about their experiences.

Campus life isn't just about studying. There are many ways that you can make the most of your experience. If you're visiting Bath, you could visit our Sports Training Village (STV) and access the same facilities Olympic athletes use. You can also see our Students' Union, food outlets, campus pub and nightclub, and The Edge, where you can take dance, art and music classes.

The Chemistry department at Bath is known for being one of the friendliest at the Uni. All staff are genuinely happy to help with any queries you have.' — Ffion Platt, Chemistry MChem with professional placement.

What our students think

The best people to tell you about Chemistry at Bath are our students.

'I wish someone had told me you don't need to be a maths genius to study Chemistry. The transition from A level might seem scary, but with the support available, I found that it was very achievable.' — Annabel Griesmeyer, Chemistry with Management BSc.

'Every week, we spend time with our tutors in tutorials, going through questions from the lectures, which I find so helpful.' — Annabel Flook, Chemistry MChem with professional placement.

ChemSoc organise monthly socials, which have been a great way to get to know other students on my course outside of lectures.' — Grace Sparrow, Chemistry MChem with study year abroad.

'One of the best parts of first year is the lab sessions. They give you the opportunity to apply the principles you learn in lectures and also meet new people.' — Ed Grummit, Chemistry MChem.

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!

'I love the city, it's beautiful and so much fun to explore with friends in your time off - there's always a new cute coffee shop to try out!' — Anna Stearn, Chemistry MChem with professional placement.

Travelling to 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.
