Getting started is easy. Just follow the steps below to make your transition to Bath Spa as smooth as possible.

Joining us the for first time?

We can't wait to welcome you to the Bath Spa community. Take a moment to work your way through these steps to ensure you're prepared.

Step 1: register online

Create a Bath Spa University account and complete online registration - ideally before you arrive on campus.

Step 2: attend in-person enrolment

Step 3: plan your first week

Wondering what will happen on your first day? Check out our undergraduate arrival information.

Get excited for welcome activities – you're in for a treat!

Step 4: just a few more things to check...

  • Visit our Student Finance pages to find out about instalment options and how to pay your fees (new international students are required to pay fees in full before your course starts)
  • Remember to check that your funding is in place (UK/EU students)
  • If your fees are due to be paid by a private sponsor/employer, please email scanned evidence to myfinance@bathspa.ac.uk to avoid entering your card details during online registration
  • All packed and accommodation sorted? Visit our accommodation pages if you need more information
  • Get a healthy start to your studies by making sure your government-recommended vaccinations are up to date.

Returning student?

We're looking forward to welcoming you back. Before you can progress to the next level of your course, you'll need to get a few things sorted.

Step 1: register online

Step 2: find your Welcome Week activities

Returning undergraduate students have mandatory course-related sessions over Welcome Week, while returning postgraduate students will be contacted by their course team if there are any welcome sessions planned.

Step 3: attend in-person enrolment

If you're a UK/EU student progressing on to the next level of your course, you are no longer required to attend an in-person enrolment session - find out more (requires login).

If you're an International student, you will need to enrol in-person to evidence your right to study in the UK. For more information about when and where, see our in-person enrolment page.
