Natural Sciences Applicant Visit Days

We normally 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 undergraduate Natural Sciences 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 Natural 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.

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

'The facilities in each department are very impressive compared to what I was used to at A Level - the labs are very large with so much equipment. Being a Natural Scientist also means that you have exposure to a variety of labs, depending on the sciences you choose.' — Louise Miller, Natural Sciences BSc with professional placement.

What student life is really like

No one knows what it’s like to be a Natural 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 university 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.

'You'll never be bored with the variety of events on campus. There are pub quizzes, cocktail evenings, pizza and board game night, and even a sports club night at the Plug and Tub on campus.' — Hannah King, Natural Sciences BSc with professional placement.

What our students think

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

'The first year has started building on what I learned at A level. It's given me the chance to work on some topics I didn't understand before, be introduced to some new topics, and recap what I already knew.' — Imogen Smerdon, Natural Sciences BSc.

'The lectures are interesting as well as challenging and of really good quality. The lecturers usually hang around after to see if anyone has any questions.' — Peter Rory Hall, Natural Sciences BSc with study abroad placement.

'Natural Sciences at Bath is very friendly and supportive. In Welcome Week there were lots of activities like welcome talks and meet the Nat Sci squad, which helped me understand more about the course, as well as meet other students.' — Rosie Fatscher, Natural Sciences MSci with professional placement.

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!

'The city is such a lovely place. It has everything you could need, as well as lots of great places to go for a night out! The busses back up to campus at 24/7 which is amazing. Never once have I felt unsafe in the city, all the people are lovely and it really has an atmosphere of community.' — Zoe Saunders, Natural Sciences BSc 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.
