Steeped in Roman history, the relatively small city of Bath exudes culture and history. With so much on offer the city provides a great university experience and it’s home to thousands of students.
University of Bath
Regarded as one of the top places to study in the UK, the university campus sits just one mile from the historic city centre of Bath. Its prestigious reputation is predicated upon world-leading research and the fact that it was ranked first out of 113 UK institutions in the 2015 Times Higher Education (THE) Student Experience Survey. In addition to this it was awarded Best Campus University in 2014. In terms of employability the university has over 8,000 links with world-leading employers such as Nike, Microsoft, Airbus and the World Bank.
Bath Spa University
Located just outside of the city centre, Bath Spa has two main campuses, Newton Park and Sion Hill, which are connected with good bus links into the city. Being one of the top creative universities in the country, Bath Spa prizes itself on its focus on culture and enterprise with an emphasis on employability found within many of the courses on offer. An exciting new development on the Newton Park campus was completed in 2014 that allowed for new student housing as well as new academic buildings.
