What it's like to study with us

In this webinar, staff from our Department of Economics talk about our range of master's courses, and living and studying in Bath.

Come and study in a UNESCO World Heritage City

Originally founded by the Romans, the city of Bath is now home to some of the most beautiful Georgian architecture in the country. The city attracts many tourists each year, who come to visit the thermal baths, or sit picnicking at the Royal Crescent.

Just a short walk away from the centre of the city, perched on top of a hill, sits our campus, with beautiful views across the city.

Bath is the 2nd safest university town or city in England and Wales (The Complete University Guide, 2023).

Whether you decide to live in campus accommodation or within the city itself, you are never far away from what Bath has to offer.
