Ways for students to find out about the University

Discover activities including talks, workshops and visits to help your students make an informed decision about their future.

Undergraduate campus tours

Your students can book an in-person or virtual campus tour.

In-person and virtual campus tours are led by our fully-trained Student Ambassadors who will take you on a tour of our campus, answer your questions or put you in contact with the correct team if you have specific questions.

Step into Bath

Step into Bath is a free, online programme for your Year 12 students which will help them 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 features a one-hour online session each day (Monday - Friday) on a different theme.

Students will have the opportunity to hear from our staff and current students on applying to university, studying at university and student life. They will also be able to share thoughts and ideas with other students looking to study a similar course as them and engage with academic content tailored towards their chosen subject.

Step into Bath will run between 19 - 23 July 2021 and 26 - 30 July 2021. The week they are able to join will depend on the undergraduate course they are interested in applying for.

University of Bath Library

Our Library usually offers independent learning and library skills support through group visits. This offer has been suspended until further notice due to the impact of COVID-19.

When we resume normal service, if you have students undertaking A level projects or an Extended Project Qualification, you can bring them to the Library by prior arrangement and they can supplement their research through access to our print resources and a limited range of electronic resources.

Similarly, when we resume normal service, if you are bringing a group of your students to visit the University as part of another event or activity or if you are from a local school looking for student project support, then you can request a visit. Visits are most suitable for year 12/13 students and are available during University holidays.

Sports Performer Days

Your students can experience our sporting facilities and the top-level coaching available at the University.

The day will consist of activities tailored to your students' needs and is suitable for any year group (Reception - Year 13). You can either choose a variety of sessions, (from a wide range including team-building activities, hockey, trampolining and laboratory assessments), or focus your day on one area.

Sports Science

Our Team Bath Human Performance Centre can provide the opportunity for your school or college pupils to learn more about the science of sport and how it is applied to elite athletes.

The programme is suitable for groups studying Physical Education, Sports Studies or Sports Science as part of GSCE, A Level or further education programmes. This can include practical laboratory sessions, field-based testing sessions and specialist lectures.

Widening Participation

We organise outreach events and collaborate with schools and colleges to encourage under-represented students to apply to university.

We have the strong belief that any students with the ability should be able to progress to higher education irrespective of their background. The University, therefore, works with underrepresented students in higher education to support them through their journey. Starting with identifying students through schools, colleges and third sector organisations we develop and empower them to choose a University like Bath.

The support doesn't end there. We support under-represented students through the process of admissions and then once they are on a course at Bath embedded and additional support ensures that students get the best outcomes possible. We then support under-represented students to progress into further study or careers, ensuring they achieve what they are capable of.

Students' Union activities

Our Students’ Union (SU) recruits student volunteers to support local charities and community groups (including schools) across Bath. Students will work with a range of children and adults in the local area and promote positive relationships between the University and the community.

We are always looking for new partnerships, such as our partnership with Twerton Infant School where volunteers deliver a Christmas party and other themed events.

The SU has a whole variety of different student groups, including faith and cultural societies and different sporting activities. We could deliver activities such as breakdancing, cheerleading, musical theatre and debating skills, as well as support with subject-specific topics such as maths, computing and languages. There are also a variety of societies that are able to deliver cultural awareness sessions
