A Leading University
The University of Bath is one of Britain's leading universities with an international reputation for teaching and research. It was founded and awarded its Royal Charter in 1966, but has origins that go back to 1856.
The University is a small, academically selective university in an outstandingly beautiful, safe and friendly city. It has always been committed to excellence in teaching and research. The University has a superb range of programmes in science, technology, languages and applied social studies.
The University is organised into three faculties and two schools: Each faculty offers a variety of foundation, undergraduate (bachelors) and postgraduate (masters) degrees as well as opportunities for research (MPhil and PhD).
The University of Bath currently has around 9,500 full-time students. Of these approximately 2,500 are international students from over 100 different countries. Its students enjoy the best of both worlds at Bath in a prestigious university that is both intellectually and culturally stimulating.
The campus is set amongst green fields, overlooking the historic UNESCO designated World Heritage City of Bath, only a mile away. The town has everything else-shops, restaurants, cinemas, parks and museums-all within a beautiful setting. London is one and a half hours by train.
For more than 2,000 years Bath's fame has been linked to its natural hot springs, whose waters are believed to be good for your health. It was the Romans who first developed the site when they built a complex of baths and a temple to the goddess, Sulis-Minerva. They called it Aquae Sulis the waters of Sulis in honour of the Celtic goddess already worshipped at the spring. This symbol is represented in the University of Bath logo.
In the 18th Century Bath became Britain’s leading spa town. Many of the city’s buildings date from this period and it is their glorious Georgian architecture, which gives Bath its distinctive appearance and historical feel. In the heart of the Georgian city, the remarkable Roman Baths can still be seen today and the big news for the future is that Bath is at long last going to have a spa again. With a quarter of a million gallons coming to the surface each day and an average water temperature of 47 degrees.
