Pharmacology Applicant Visit Days

We normally run Applicant Visit Days for our undergraduate degree offer holders between January and March. 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 Pharmacology 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 Pharmacology 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.

Pharmacology sits within the Department of Life Sciences, a collaborative and cross-disciplinary department that is also home to our Pharmacy and Biosciences courses.

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

'We have many opportunities for hands-on work. We normally have one lab session per week, starting with 3-hour labs in first year, and longer labs in second year. The longer sessions allow you to do more complex and interesting experiments.' — Ren Southall, Pharmacology MPharmacol.

What student life is really like

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

'Growing up, I always wanted to attend a campus university like in the movies. I didn't have a chance to visit, so I was worried I'd be disappointed, but from the moment I arrived, I knew I'd made the right choice.' — Dorsa Abdolkarimi, Pharmacology BSc.

What our students think

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

'To ease you into the course, the workload during the first semester is quite manageable. We have workshops for every unit, which are a great opportunity to work through your questions and prepare for exams.' — Woo-Taek Jang, Pharmacology BSc.

'Everyone is so so helpful. We're a relatively small department, so it's easy to ask questions during and after lectures.' — Jin He, Pharmacology MPharmacol.

'Each lecturer specialises in a specific topic, so they definitely know what they're talking about. They're all extremely passionate about what they do, and always open to questions.' — Yasmin Abed, Pharmacology BSc.

'As an international student, joining the Hellenic society gave me the chance to be part of a community that feels like home and meet people that I have lots in common with.' — Danai Dapola, Pharmacology MPharmacol.

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!

'As a city, Bath is incredible. It's beautiful and historic, with huge parks and a lot of shops. But most importantly for me, it's a very safe city.' — Yasmin Abed, Pharmacology BSc.

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.
