History meets modern teaching methods at Bath Spa

Being the UK’s only World Heritage City and one of its most visited tourist attractions, Bath is a unique study destination.

Just 90 minutes from London, Bath combines a vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere with stunning Georgian architecture. The university, which also houses fine examples of such architecture, has a history stretching back to the 19th century.

Today Bath Spa is a 'teaching-led' university. This means all the institution’s other activities, such as research and links with business, are measured by their contribution to the quality of student teaching, to the student experience and to student employability.

This approach has seen Bath Spa achieve a 4.1/5 score for teaching quality in the National Student Survey 2006 and an average score of 22/24 for 'teaching excellence' under the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) national assessment scheme.

Bath Spa University offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate across the disciplines of Art & Design, Fashion, Performing Arts, Music, Humanities, Education, Environmental and Food Sciences, Psychology, Health Studies and Business & Management.

The university also offers a wide range of programs to help students whose first language is not English. The Undergraduate Course for International Students (UCIS) is one such program and provides language and academic support for first year international students. Each subject is covered by an English language tutor who is a specialist in that particular subject. The tutor prepares students in small groups for each individual lecture, and afterwards checks the material has been understood. UCIS tutors will also give you advice on every essay, presentation and exam.

If your English level is insufficient to allow direct entry into one of the undergraduate programs or the UCIS program, then the university’s Foundation Courses are an option.

Other programs for non-native English speakers include: a Pre-Master’s course, a Portfolio Building course for potential Art & Design students, summer school, a pre-sessional course, study abroad courses, and English Language Programs of varying lengths which can be started at any point between September and June.

As an international student, you’ll have a smooth transition to campus life with the support of the university’s social and academic programs. Social events, which generally occur every fortnight, include trips to London, Oxford, Salisbury and many local attractions.
