Your learning

How we'll provide your teaching and learning so you gain the skills, knowledge, and experience you’ll need for the next steps in your career.

Learning experience

Courses designed to help you achieve your academic potential.

At the University of Bath, we aim to offer you the best possible learning experience in an ever-changing world.

Many of our staff are international experts in their subject areas, using their research and discoveries to ensure that your learning incorporates the most relevant topics, and reflects latest knowledge in the field. We use student feedback to help us build on our teaching strengths and enhance our approach by harnessing the potential of new ways of learning.

Teaching learning and support

Innovation and flexibility in practice.

The delivery of our campus-based programmes is mainly via in-person activities on campus, supported by online elements and structured independent study.

This approach enables us to support individual student study needs and retain flexibility in programme delivery when needed.

In-person teaching and engagement takes place each week on campus, making sure that your learning is worked through in practice, a key feature of Bath education. In addition, our online teaching provision includes both live, interactive learning sessions, allowing sharing and exploration of ideas within a group, and structured independent self-study.

We also provide both in-person and online student support services ranging from high quality careers advice, through health and wellbeing to personal tutoring and support for all our students, studying or working on campus or around the world.

Future academic years

Building on what we have learnt to enhance teaching and learning opportunities.

Looking ahead to the future, we’re developing new approaches to teaching, learning, and assessment so that we continue to improve the experience of studying at Bath for our current and future students.

Flexible learning

By reviewing our provision and listening to current and prospective students, we will aim to build on the enhancements and innovations we have made, delivering engaging teaching and inspiring learning resources that are also accessible remotely, giving you both choice and flexibility.

High quality recorded material that is readily accessible will provide the foundation for in-person sessions such as seminars, small group-work, laboratories, individual and team projects, design studies and tutorials, enabling you to apply your understanding of the knowledge you have gained in a supportive and interactive setting.

Our commitment

Our commitment is to provide a learning environment at the University of Bath that continues to embed the skills, knowledge and experience valuable to you in the next steps in your career.
