Mathematical Sciences Applicant Visit Days

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

After you receive an offer to study one of our our Mathematical Sciences 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 Mathematical Sciences 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.

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

'One of the good things about Maths at Bath is that the course is huge. You're very likely to have other mathematicians close by in your accommodation, and this common ground makes it really easy to make friends.' — Sam Cook, Mathematics MMath with professional placement.

Why come to a Faculty of Science Applicant Visit Day

Hear from Faculty of Science students as they share what they enjoyed about their Applicant Visit Day and the difference it made to their university plans.

What student life is really like

No one knows what it’s like to be a Mathematical Sciences 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.

'I was initially very nervous about coming to uni, especially with a course as large as Maths. Once I arrived, it all seemed to be a lot easier and I met some of my best friends right away during the first week.' — Rebecca Michels, Mathematical Sciences BSc with professional placement.

What our students think

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

'The actual maths we do isn't too challenging. The hardest part that I have found is getting used to writing maths properly, in a structured way.' — Rhys Temple, Mathematics MMath.

'My Personal Tutor made a big difference to my confidence and gave me helpful hints on how to stay on track, and where I should be at any given moment throughout the course.' — Curtis Elvin, Mathematics BSc.

'First year covers a wide range of topics, one of which was learning how to code. It's now one of my favourite parts and I get to do really cool things like use it to decode cyphers.' — Hannah Matthews, Mathematics MMath.

'Being able to take units from the physics department during my degree is a huge benefit.' — Ellis Caird, Mathematics MMath.

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!

'One of the main attractions to Bath for me was its location. Bath really is a gorgeous city, with loads of walks and green areas close to campus which are great for de-stressing.' — Sam Cook, Mathematics MMath with professional placement.

Getting 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.
