Schools and colleges – Bath Spa University

Virtual workshops, activities and initiatives for schools and colleges to help ignite students' passions and show them what's possible in higher education.

We're offering virtual and in-person workshops to schools and colleges so that students can learn what life is like in higher education. 

Our dedicated staff and students deliver sessions on topics ranging from student finance to techniques in film production.

Guidance workshops

Our student ambassadors and outreach professionals advise on all aspects of student life, from finance and jobs to accommodation and support. 

Interactive Curriculum workshops

Subject workshops give your students a taste of university study and a chance to streamline their shortlist of potential courses.

Meet us

Higher Education fairs

These are a great way for students to learn more about the universities and courses available to them.

We attend a number of fairs throughout the year and would love to be invited to any Higher Education or careers events at your school or college. Add us to your mailing list and we’ll see you there!

Parents' and Guardians Evenings

Many schools and colleges hold Higher Education events for parents. 

As part of the Ignite programme, we've developed a presentation for parents, carers, guardians, and anyone supporting a student into higher education. The Supporter's Session outlines the application process, key dates and top tips.

UCAS exhibitions

You’ll find us at many of the UCAS exhibitions across the UK – drop by and say "hello"!

Our friendly team members are always happy to advise your students and answer any questions they may have. If you’re planning to take your students to an event, consider our Preparing for Open Days workshop.

If you’re interested in a session that isn’t currently outlined in this offering, let us know and we’ll try our best to provide it. Please contact to enquire.

Visit Bath Spa

Give your students the opportunity to experience a day at a university campus. They’ll be able to see the University facilities, take part in interactive workshops, talk to Bath Spa students and, most importantly, ask lots of questions. Visits can be arranged to suit the needs and interests of your students.

A typical day would include a welcome talk, a workshop of your choice, a campus and facility tour, and, after lunch, another workshop and a question and answer session with our students.

Widening participation

The Access and Participation Office works collaboratively with schools, colleges and community groups in Bath and North East Somerset and Wiltshire and the surrounding regions. We deliver a targeted and structured programme of activities for young people – from primary school age to post-16 and adults - to support their progression to higher education.

If your school, college, or community group has a high number of people from groups that are recognised as under-represented in higher education and you would like to find out more, please contact us on
