Open Days

An Open Day is your chance to:

  • tour our campuses, facilities and accommodation
  • chat to current students and tutors
  • learn more about your course.

"Clearing can actually be a fantastic opportunity to discover a wide variety of courses you may not have considered before and you might even find yourself with a better course than you expected!"

Sue Rigby, Vice Chancellor

"I applied to Bath Spa through Clearing and it was the best decision I ever made. It just felt so right, and the support and all-round experience of studying here was more than I could have imagined"

Ellis Naylor, BA (Hons) History graduate

Reasons to love Bath Spa

Our inspiring campuses are steeped in history, balancing beautiful period buildings and breathtaking settings with ultramodern technology and facilities.

Nestled in countryside just four miles from Bath city centre, Newton Park Campus is home to our ultra-modern academic building, industry-standard digital and studio facilities, our library with dedicated subject librarians to support you in your studies, and Bath's only purpose-built concert hall, as well as our award-winning Students' Union, and some of the halls of residence where first year students can live.

With acres of parkland, lake, castle and even some friendly cows and sheep, there's plenty of space to relax and just be you.

Locksbrook Campus, where many of our art and design courses are taught, enjoys a riverside location in the old industrial area of Bath, just a few minutes from the vibrant city centre. 

With top-class technical workshops, flexible studio spaces, a gallery area, art shop, cafe and large, open social areas it's been designed to encourage creativity to flourish. Locksbrook has even received both a RIBA South West Award and RIBA National Award, recognising and celebrating what an amazingly inspirational space it is to come together to design, make, do, create and learn in.

Come and see our beautiful campuses for yourself, and find out more about what makes studying at Bath Spa so special.
