Welcome to Bath Spa University

Vice-Chancellor professor Sue Rigby at Locksbrook CampusI want to welcome you to this section of the website, which is designed to give you and our other virtual visitors an insight into the University and provide a space where you can begin to explore your passion for learning. 

We don't want you to miss out on exploring Bath Spa, so we've designed this space to give you a taste of university life and enable you to find out if this is the best place for you to study. 

A university is the sum of its students and staff, a community of learners and a place to grow. Your talent and skills make Bath Spa University what it is, and ensuring that you have found a university where you will flourish is vitally important.

We offer a toolkit for the unknown, and a way to thrive in your professional life. Although it seems like a long journey from here to graduation, this is your chance to start that journey with us.
