Having a diverse student population is important to us and we aim to support students from under-represented backgrounds to achieve their potential and develop their knowledge through our outreach programmes and activities. Depending on the type of activity, we require different criteria to be met. We do this to ensure that we are only requesting information that can be easily obtained.

Individual applicants to programmes

(Post-16 - Years 12 and 13)

To ensure we are supporting the students in most need we have set criteria that students should meet to be accepted onto certain programmes. Both the On Track to Bath and Pathway to Bath programmes are targeted at students who meet the subject-specific criteria outlined on the programme pages and at least one of the following criteria. These criteria will also be used to determine eligibility for Discover Bath and Find Your Way.

In addition, we may also consider a student who has a declared disability or receives Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or a Personal Independence Payment (PIP).

If you are unsure if a student meets the criteria after checking the above links then please email us.

We know that the context in which students are studying can have an impact on the grades they achieve and on the availability of other experiences, like extra-curricular activities or work experience so we also take this context into consideration as part of the admissions process for undergraduate study at the University of Bath. Our contextual admissions page details how we use this information.
