Open Days

We can't wait to welcome you to the next Bath Spa University Open Day. Sign up for one of our events below, or take a virtual tour when it suits you.

Bath Spa University Open Days and Teacher Education events

Our Open Days have been designed to give you an opportunity to explore what the Bath Spa community has to offer, whilst our Teacher Education events give you a taste of what teaching at Bath Spa is all about.

At the moment we are offering virtual Open Days and access to virtual Teacher Education events only.

For Undergraduates and Postgraduates

Our virtual Open Days have been planned to provide you with all the information you'd expect from our physical events: course presentations, live Q+A sessions and virtual campus tours, giving you a taste of what Bath Spa has to offer. Once signed up, you're welcome to participate in as much or as little of the day as you wish. You'll be sent an invitation by email shortly before the event.

If you can't make it to one of our Undergraduate Open Days, you can still join our virtual on-demand open day.

For PGCE

Our Teacher Education information events are an opportunity for you to meet Teacher Education teams and find out all the information you need to know about Teacher Education at Bath Spa University. You'll have the opportunity to ask questions about entry requirements, fees and funding, routes into teaching, or other areas, to help inform decisions about the next steps for you.

You'll receive all the necessary information on how to attend when you have made your booking.
