Joining us as an international student

Register for upcoming events, learn about our international scholarships and find out what some of our international students think about studying at Bath.

Living in Bath means living in a safe, vibrant, and historic city with a friendly atmosphere and a welcoming community.

Bath is a double-nominated UNESCO World Heritage Site, both as one of the Great Spa Towns of Europe and thanks to its Roman heritage and Georgian architecture.

There are lots of historic places to visit around the city and, because of its cultural contributions, TIME magazine listed Bath as one of the World’s Greatest Places 2021, making it one of only three UK cities to make the list.
