International applications – Bath Spa University

International Applications

We welcome applications from students across the world. We’re committed to providing a simple and effective application process.

The way you’ll need to apply will vary depending on the type of course you want to study. 

For undergraduate (Bachelor’s) courses, international students have two ways to apply. You can either apply through the Universities and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS) or apply directly to us. Either way, you apply using the "Apply now" button on from the course page. 

If you’re interested in postgraduate courses, you’ll need to go to the webpage for the course you’re interested in and hit the "Apply Now" button.

Applying for other courses


To apply for a PGCE course international students follow the same application process as UK students. You’ll need to apply through UCAS Teacher Training.

Postgraduate Research (MPhil, PhD)

If you’re interested in completing a research degree at Bath Spa University, you’ll need to apply through our Graduate College.

Get yourself a scholarship

We offer a range of scholarships and bursaries, and once you have an offer, you may be eligible to apply for a Bath Spa University international scholarship. You will need the Bath Spa student number from your application for admission.

Confirm your offer

If your application is successful, you'll receive a conditional or unconditional offer from us. You'll then need to confirm your offer, so that we can provide you with all the information you need before you begin your studies with us. It's simple and easy, and you can do this anytime after receiving your offer - just follow the instructions below.

If you applied through UCAS

If you're a UCAS applicant, you don't need to email us. Simply accept your offer from Bath Spa University by following the guidelines and the deadline given to you by UCAS.

Personal statements and AI

We realise that AI tools are already reshaping the way we work and will become integral to many careers.

Tools such as ChatGPT can be helpful to you in helping to brainstorm ideas, improve the structure of your personal statements, and check readability; however, so can a trusted friend or supporter. Remember, your personal statement is your chance to show us who you are – and we expect it to be written by you.

A personal statement written using AI is likely to be less personal and therefore less effective at conveying who you are and why you want to study the course.  If we find that a personal statement has been written using AI, we will consider this plagiarism and your application may be rejected.

UCAS has a helpful guide on AI and personal statements that potential applicants at all stages of their studies could benefit from reading.
