Feedback from previous exchange students

Find out what exchange students have said about us.


"I really enjoyed the campus and the opportunities to make friends from all around the world. The University of Bath made it very easy to find new friends and create memories with them!"

- Cecilia Way, Queen's University, Ontario (Semester 2, 2021/22)

"I really liked everything at Bath. Being used to a university without a campus, having the opportunity to go to a university in which you had so many buildings, an amazing sports centre, multiple places to eat, a lake and so much space was one of the best things for me. I also really enjoyed living in the accommodation; I believe that for exchange students, it's the best way to bond with the others because it's not only the common spaces that you share but also experiences, advice and so much time. "

- Beatrice Ettorre, Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi (Semester 2, 2021/22)

"The best thing about my exchange was the city, I felt safe and secure at all times. Everything you might need is easy to find within the city centre. Finally, meeting new people and learning about new cultures was a really beautiful experience, and I learned a lot about the lifestyle, culture and traditions in the UK, which was fascinating."

- Javiera Diaz, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (Semester 2, 2021/22)
