Preparing to study at Bath


Studying at university is the thing many of our students tell us is the biggest change from school or college. Find out what it is like to study at Bath and how you can use the next few months to prepare before you arrive.

We know the best way to find out about what Bath will be like is to hear from students.

You'll find lots of hints and tips from our students as well as reflections of how they managed the transition to Bath.
