Discover Bath Engineering Residentials

A chance for students in Year 12 to experience what it's like to live and study Engineering at the University of Bath

students in a laboratory working on an Electrical Engineering project.
Discover Bath provides an opportunity for Year 12 students to experience studying an Engineering degree at Bath

Overview

The Discover Bath Engineering residentials will run from Monday 1 to Thursday 4 July 2019 and will help you make a strong application to the University of Bath.

In the build up to the residential, we will support you with A-Level content and prepare you for the first year of undergraduate work you will undertake whilst at Bath. Your e-mentor will support you with the preparation before you arrive, and the work you undertake during and after the residential. They will also be on hand to guide you through the process of choosing and applying to university.

Each Discover Bath student will be assigned an e-mentor who is a current undergraduate Engineering student at Bath.
