Applicant visit days

Get hands-on and up-close. Experience Bath Spa University for yourself at an Applicant Visit Day.

What are Applicant Visit Days?

Applicant Visit Days are invitation only events taking place between December and April, which are open to applicants who hold a conditional offer from us. These events give you the chance to get beneath the surface of Bath Spa University and experience everything that makes us special, and if you sign up to have an interview, you'll also have the opportunity to change your conditional offer to a guaranteed place.

Once you've received your conditional offer from us, we'll email you with all the information you need to book onto an Applicant Visit Day and sign up for an interview. If you've had your conditional offer but not your invitation email, please check your junk mail folder (just in case) and if it's still missing, please email opendays@bathspa.ac.uk.

I've booked an Applicant Visit Day, can I swap it for another day?

Yes – providing that there are spaces available on the date you wish to come. You can change the date of your visit using the online system you initially made your booking with.

I’ve already been to an Open Day, should I attend an Applicant Visit Day?

You don’t have to visit us again, however, many applicants find visiting us again helpful in making their minds up on which university to choose. You’ll be able to ask questions, learn more about the course you want to study, see the facilities and meet the staff and current students.

Will there be representatives from Student Support there?

Yes – the Student Services team will deliver a talk. Alternatively if you have any issues you wish to talk about in confidence or before visiting Bath Spa University, please call (01225) 876543 to arrange private appointment or for a general chat. Alternatively you can email studentsupport@bathspa.ac.uk

Can I come to an Applicant Visit Day if I have applied for a creative or performing arts course?

If you've applied for a creative of performing arts course, we'll invite you to attend a portfolio interview or audition, at which you'll be considered for a guaranteed place.

Am I required to sign up for an interview?

Interviews are not required. If you don't sign up for an interview, you'll still keep your conditional offer of a place at Bath Spa University, but if you do book an interview, you'll have the chance to change your conditional offer to a guaranteed place

Can I book an interview on the day, when I arrive on campus?

This might be possible but will depend on availability. We strongly recommend you book your interview in advance in order to avoid disappointment and so you have enough time to prepare. 

I have booked an interview but I would like to change the time, is this possible?

Yes, providing that there are spaces available on the date you wish to come for your interview. You can amend your booking using the online system you used to book the interview, or by emailing opendays@bathspa.ac.uk.
