Ways to experience the University

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

An update about our campus-based events in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.


After careful consideration, the University has decided that our Open Days on 19 and 20 June this year cannot proceed as planned. We have also postponed our weekly campus tours and decided to deliver our Discover Bath Residential programme online following the UK government’s advice.

All the decisions we have made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have been informed by our duty of care to our students, our staff, our visitors and our wider responsibilities to our community.

We are committed to ensuring there will be other opportunities for you to discover what the University has to offer, to explore the campus either virtually or, as circumstances permit, first-hand, and meet up with our student community and staff. We are now planning to hold Open Days on both Friday 11, and Saturday 12 September, although it is possible that these dates may change in light of government advice.

We are also planning a series of other events later on the year and will provide information as soon as possible.


Discover Bath Residential summer schools

If you're in Year 12, you could join one of our Discover Bath Residential summer schools to find out what it's like to be an undergraduate student.


Our summer schools give you the chance to experience lectures, seminars and workshops to start learning the study skills you need for university1.

As a result of the temporary closure of our campus following government advice related to COVID-19, we will be delivering Discover Bath 2020 online and free-of-charge.

Weekly Campus Tours

Come on a tour of our Claverton Down campus and find out what makes the University so special.


Our tours generally start at 2pm on most Wednesdays and Fridays and take place throughout the year. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the temporary closure of our campus, we are postponing them until further notice.

Email campus-events-team@bath.ac.uk if you have any questions about our campus tours.

Undergraduate Open Days

An Open Day is the best way to explore the campus and experience undergraduate life before starting your studies.


We usually hold Undergraduate Open Days in June and September each year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our June 2020 Open Days will not be going ahead.

We are now planning to hold Open Days on both Friday 11 and Saturday 12 September, although it is possible that these dates may change in light of government advice.

To get up-to-date information and find out when bookings will open for our September Open Days please register your interest.
