Frequently asked questions

How do I get a guaranteed place?

To qualify, you'll need to be a full-time undergraduate student who is entering the University with standard UK qualifications and apply for a three or four-year undergraduate course through UCAS. When you receive your conditional offer, you’ll have the opportunity to change it to a guaranteed place by having an interview with an academic member of staff. If you have applied for a course requiring a portfolio of work and/or an audition/interview you will be invited to an interview or audition day, after which you could be made a conditional offer or offered a guaranteed place.

To take us up on your guaranteed place, you’ll need to make us your firm choice on UCAS Track, by the relevant deadline. Bear in mind that criteria can vary by course, so please read your offer letter carefully.

When will the interviews, portfolio submissions or auditions happen?

Interviews will take place from November 2018 onwards and you’ll have the choice to meet with us face-to-face or by phone. Your offer letter will outline what to do next, along with any dates for auditions, interviews and, if required, when to submit a portfolio.

How do I book an interview?

You’ll be offered the opportunity of an interview with a member of our academic team when you receive your initial, conditional offer. Look out for details in your offer letter.

How should I prepare for my interview?

We want to see your skills, ability and passion. So, while the criteria will vary from course to course, we’ll be looking for evidence of your commitment, motivation and interest in your subject – as well as an open-minded, enquiring approach. We’ll also be looking for your talent, track record and potential – all essential factors if you’re to thrive here at Bath Spa University.

Will I need to visit Bath Spa University for my interview?

We’d love to welcome you to one of our beautiful campuses. However, if this isn’t possible, we’re also offering interviews by phone. 

How do I know if I need to submit a portfolio or attend an audition?

This varies from course to course and we’ll outline all of the details in your offer letter.

Can I transfer my guaranteed place from one course to another?

Your offer relates to a specific course, so if you change your mind, you may be able to keep your guaranteed place or you may need to talk to the relevant course leader from your newly chosen course.

A guaranteed place is just one of three ways to help you take that important first step to whatever you want to be.
