Bath Spa voted Top 6 for creativity in Which? 2017 Student Survey

Monday, 9 October, 2017

Bath Spa University has been voted one of the top six creative universities in the UK in the Which? University Student Survey 2017.

The annual survey reveals the top universities in the UK for a wide range of extra-curricular aspects.

Which? University is a free website which allows people to compare universities on both extra-curricular and academic experience to help them choose the right university for them.

The survey asked over 8,700 current students in more than 100 universities across the UK to rate their universities on five different categories - nightlife, sports, student unions, politics, and the creative scene.

Nick Foskett, Interim Vice-Chancellor of Bath Spa University, said: "I am delighted that Bath Spa has again been recognised as a top creative university by Which? University. Bath Spa is a high achieving university which is becoming increasingly recognised as a centre of excellence for creativity, culture and enterprise.

"We employ outstanding professionals with extensive practical experience in the creative and cultural industries, who can offer students a real insight into their chosen career fields and teach them the skills that they need to succeed in an industry that is constantly evolving."

Other institutions in the top six for creativity were Goldsmiths University of London, Falmouth University, University of the Arts London, Norwich University of the Arts, and the University for the Creative Arts.

Alex Hayman, Which? University Managing Director of Public Markets, added: "For many people university is much more than just an academic destination, so seeing how current students rate their universities on things like nightlife, student unions and sports can be really helpful when choosing where to study.

"It is important to do your research and look into all aspects of study and life at different universities before making your decision."

Bath Spa was previously voted in the top five universities for creativity in 2016 and in the top six universities for creativity in 2014.
