    Yeah it's epic, you go there and instead of showers they have massive unisex roman baths.

    Ignoring the stupid comments, yes Bath is a good university. It's in a lovely place and the university does continuously well each year.

    It's supposed to be a top uni. I don't know what its like to study there, but from what I've seen of it looks like a S***hole! It's all 60's lumps of concrete. It was originally built as some sort of technical college so I guess that explains it! The TV show "Campus" was set there apparently.

    The City of Bath, however is beautiful!

    The old buildings are horrible. But the new ones are really nice.
    And no, it wasn't built as a technical college. The universities history is as a technical college, but the campus at Claverton Down was only built when the idea of Bath having a university was considered.
    And yes the city is amazing.

    No its not an ex-polytechnic. Ex-poly's are the ones that received uni status in 1992 like Greenwich, Brighton, Huddersfield etc. Bath received uni status in the 1960's. It did used to be a technical college before this though, same goes for Loughborough uni.

    It's a very good university, I personally wasn't fond of the campus but I know people who love it. All down to personal taste really. Lovely city, anyway.

    Depends by what criteria you are judging it.

    It means nothing to say it is "good".

    Depends on what subject you're wanting to do - are you looking at the University of Bath or Bath Spa University?

    I've lived in Bath all my life, so feel free to ask questions about the city itself

    And OP, I don't know what course you're thinking of but generally it's really good for pretty much everything. For example maths, it's #5 in the country, everyone got A*AA and still finds the course a challenge.
    Socially, it's awesome - really friendly, very metropolitan and not pretentious (sure you get the Jack Wills and rugby brigade, but they're still all pretty nice!) and a decent nightlife. I'd recommend it to anyone.
