Department of Social & Policy Sciences Applicant Visit Day

Find out more about what it's like studying with us at one of our course webinars.

Join us at a course webinar

Based on recent guidance from the Government relating to coronavirus (Covid-19), we are unable to invite you to visit our campus in person. So, to help you find out more about your course and the University, we are holding a series of course webinars for our offer holders to try and give you as best an experience as possible and help you make informed choices in these unprecedented times.

What does the webinar involve?

The aim of the events is to help you in your decision making. It will be run by an academic from your chosen course, who will talk about the subject and what it's like to study at Bath. You'll also get a chance to ask questions about the course and the University at the end of the presentation.

Each webinar lasts for around an hour including a Q&A session. You'll be able to watch it again in your own time once the presentation has finished. See information below for when your course will be holding a webinar.

When will the course webinars take place?
