"One of my favourite things is the sense of community and belonging. Being one of the smaller universities in the UK, you easily interact with students despite the course they are taking, meaning you create a variety of friendship groups."
– Annabel Davis, BA (Hons) Music/BSc (Hons) Psychology student
"The campus and city of Bath are the perfect mix of urban and rural living. There's always so much going on in the city, but it's great to have a break on campus too, especially in the beautiful scenery which surrounds the grounds."
