The first plans that can be said eventually became the University of Bath were discussed in 1839, when plans for a college in the area were even presented to the reigning monarch at the time; Queen Victoria. Despite lack of funding for the college at the time, other institutions were set up close by and, over the years, merged, expanded, and worked together, such as the Bristol Trade School and the Bath School of Pharmacy.Show more
I had a brilliant time at the University of Bath. The facilities are amazing and there are so many ways to feel involved as a student, there is a real sense of community around campus. I was part of the maths department and the course was extremely challenging, but I felt so supported throughout every stage of my degree.There are so many societies and sports available, there really is something for everyone. I would definitely recommend the University to anyone.View more

I chose this University from its reputation and the course content fit my interest. After spending nearly two semester there, here is what I am feeling.
The quality of the lessons and instructors are not as good as expected. Classes were always not well prepared, the instructors always ask the students what they want to know and just tell us only the surface, not into technical details. There always be lectures for guest speakers scheduled but always be cancelled due to the guest’s private reasons. The marking criteria of many assignments are unclear and the feedback is too general. Overall I don’t feel like I get much new knowledge from here.
However, the university facilities are good. With 24 hours open library, securities on campus, extra skills development classes and events from the student union, it makes campus alive and fun.
It is an international university. However, my class was too international but lack of local British or even European students, only 2 British and less than 5 European out of nearly 30 students. Actually more than 80% are from Chinese speaking countries. This is not good for international students who also want to learn about British culture and make local friends.
After COVID-19 happened, the university is being helpful and providing much support to the students who choose to remain on campus. Such as free 3 meals every day and providing cleaning equipment for students’ room. They also let students who choose to go back home to be able to cancel their contracts with a refund. And no detriment policy was made to last year undergraduate students.
In conclusion, I think this university has well student support in many aspects such as soft skills development, various kinds of sharing facilities, and living support. Nevertheless, the curriculum itself is yet to be improved with more contents in deep details and make sure to compensate the students when they get less than what it has to be.View more

The university, despite having more than 15000 students (the majority of which are on site) , remains really approachable to their students and candidates. They reply within a day, they are always extremely kind and very helpful. The teachers are more than willing to help and seems that they do care about the quality of learning and your overall performance.View more
What can I say about this Uni… the people are great, the quality of lectures is unparalleled, the city is vibrant, the campus is full of life, the student life is amazing… in addition, the support system for students is on point, with a wellbeing service open 24/7 to help out with academic, personal and social problems. Bath is truly an amazing University in an amazing city.View more
The university itself is well equipped, the professors were great and the courses were taught in depth. In fact, it did not matter I was an exchange student just for the semester, I underwent the same treatment and I was equal to the rest of the students, which I really liked. The university has all the kind of clubs and organizations that students are free to join. Chess club, book club, sports teams… even a wheelchair basketball team open to everyone and inclusive for people with disabilities.
There is high level of internationality among the students and the fact it is England really makes your Erasmus+ time in the city easier as everyone speaks English! The only drawback is the living cost – too high for student life, especially because the Erasmus+ grant was not even close to cover the costs. I can only imagine for students with no scholarship/grant support.
Great campus community. Really good facilities and generally a good standard of teaching. Accommodation is very convenient. Bus system probably the most frustrating thing about the uni. Located really close to Bristol which is a bonus.View more
