Hello and welcome!

Firstly, I want to congratulate you on securing your place in Bath to study Natural Sciences. I imagine that you have a range of feelings about how your school/college experience ended abruptly earlier in the year and the subsequent changes to final assessments. Moving forward, everything that you learnt throughout your post-16 studies will put you in a great position to do very well here with us.

Moving to university is a major life event in a typical year but this year is anything but typical. So I want to reassure you that plenty of support is available to you in making the transition and I would encourage you to make use of it to ask questions, ask for advice or simply to have a chat. You will be assigned a personal tutor who is there to help with pastoral matters; for academic matters, Dr Susan Crennell will be your Director of Studies and I am also very happy to help.

Teaching starts on Monday 28 September (both online and in person) but I look forward to meeting with each of you in the week before during the induction activity taking place in Natural Sciences, again online and in person.

In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the department if you have any questions.

Best wishes,
Dr Jane White
