Your impact beyond Bath

We are grateful to have an international community of donors in 40 countries. Here are just some of the ways your support goes beyond borders.

A connected community

During lockdown, we moved our events online and were delighted by your response.

Alumni from all over the world volunteered at Get Connected career sessions, including alumna and donor Debbie Brown, based in Switzerland. She says:

I really enjoyed it! The format of a moderator fielding questions with alumni sharing their insights and experiences had a good energy, and it was clear the students were engaged. I would have loved to join these sorts of events when I was at Bath.

Global focus

Through scholarships, awards and personal development opportunities, your support enables our students to broaden their horizons.

Supporting access to education

Bath has received a University of Sanctuary award, celebrating our efforts to welcome displaced people.

Thanks to alumni such as Stuart Appleton, we offer postgraduate scholarships for asylum seekers; and one Gold Scholarship per year is reserved for refugees.

Commonwealth scholarships

Through a joint initiative between the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, donors and the University, we provide scholarships for students from developing countries.

Opportunities overseas

You broaden our students’ horizons by sponsoring work experience abroad, including the Tom Minic´ Award for language students; the Greg Slay Travel Award for social work students; Richard Roberts’ Mercer Charity Placement Awards; Mike Wisson for the Louise Wisson Travel Awards; and the Santander Universities Mobility Awards for postgraduates.

Championing change

One Young World Bath is a forum for young leaders to develop solutions for the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

With support from honorary graduate James Chen, we funded initiatives that enable students to become drivers of change in the community.
