What is Step into Bath?

Step into Bath is an online programme for Year 12 students which will help you to make a competitive university application and to develop some of the key study skills needed to succeed at university.


Step into Bath is a one week programme and will feature a one-hour online session each day (Monday-Friday) on a different theme. You will hear from some of our staff and current students, and will be able to share thoughts and ideas with other students looking to apply to study at university. We will also share advice on how to successfully transition to university study.

You will also be able to take part in some sessions which are aimed at the subject area you would like to study at university.

Step into Bath is free to attend, and there are a choice of two start dates in late July/early August 2020.
