You can also ask our teams about careers, finance, wellbeing and accommodation.

PGCE and Teacher Education Events

You’ll also get the chance to ask our staff any questions you may have. All events are held in the evening unless specified during the booking process.

Explore Bath

Our Newton Park Campus is nestled in the countryside just four miles from Bath city centre, and Locksbrook Campus enjoys a riverside location in the old industrial area of Bath. During your visit, why not take a trip into the heart of the city?

Bath is small but beautifully formed. It’s the ideal blend of old and new – a UNESCO World Heritage site which boasts world-famous architecture, a wealth of independent shops, cafés, clubs and bars, and a vibrant music, arts, and theatre scene. 

"It was the campus that swung me. It’s small enough that it feels community-like and I could see myself feeling a lot more at home at Bath Spa than I would in a big city university."

"Photography and Film were my two passions. I struggled for a long time to decide which path to take, but after visiting Bath Spa I fell in love with the possibility of exploring both options with the openness of the Photography course."
