University of Bath Library

Our Library offers independent learning and library skills support through group visits. If you have students undertaking A level projects, Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) or International Baccalaureate (IB), they can supplement their research through access to our print resources and a limited range of electronic resources.

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.

The Edge is our arts and creativity hub and provides a number of events for young people and children, all based around our ethos of bringing together arts, research and adventure. Bring your students to The Edge to tour our latest exhibition or to participate in one of our workshops. We also hold regular evenings for teachers, where you can explore our galleries with our programming team, take part in practical activities, network and enjoy a glass of wine.
