    I'm applying for The Quads, Marlborough and Solsbury, Woodland Court and Polden Court. What about you!?
    out of these which will be your 1st choice for accommodation? I'm thinking polden court as you get lots of money per week for catered and the rooms are the largest on campus!

    Hi,

    I'm Rob, a first year civil engineer.

    Sadly there is no option to be in Quads and be self catered. The quads is what many people would call part catered. You will get £25 catering credit each week, sadly this comes with the accommodation. Quads do however have kitchens so you will also be able to do some self catering. Sorry, as I know this isn't quite the response you wanted!

    If you take a look here, you can see all the other accommodation. If you are looking for self-catered, en-suite, then I'd suggest Marlborough and Solsbury Court or Woodland Court, if your budget is around that of the Quads. Marlborough and Solsbury Court cost the same as the Quads, but don't have any catering credit.

    I hope that has helped, if you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

    Hi Rob, please could you explain further how the catering credit system works? Is it simply £25 per week you can spend at restaurants around campus?

    Hi Bude8,
    The credit will be loaded onto your library card which you can then use at 8 different venues on campus. You can spend it on any food/drink you like, except alcohol. The University has created a week-long 'meal plan' to show you how far the credit can go and you can also look at it to see the range of food available.

    I hope this answers your question! If there's anything else you'd like to know feel free to quote me.

    I received my offer for Biochemistry in late March and also received an email stating that I'd be invited to an applicant day, looking at the website page of the department of biology and biochemistry it says that the open/applicant days run from October to April. Have I missed the boat or is there one coming up soon?

    Also with the applications for accommodation starting on the 13th, is it a case of first come, first served? And if so, how long is it usually before all the accommodation is full?

    Hi,

    Yeah there are a couple of differences between the two types of accommodation, but both types are very popular.

    In Marlborough/Solsbury you are in flats of about 6 people, you have a single bed and an en-suite bathroom and you all share one kitchen.

    In Woodland court the flats are shared with more people ranging from 10 -19 and you all share one big kitchen. The rooms have double beds and an en-suite bathroom. Woodland is slightly more expensive than Marlborough and Solsbury and the prices for 2015/16 can be found here from 10th April.

    Hope this helps, if you want to know anything else please just ask

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Don't worry if you have received an offer then you should be invited to attend an applicants visit day. The university returns from Easter Holidays on 13th April so you should hopefully hear something after then.

    In terms of accommodation, you have to have firmed your offer from Bath before you can apply and yes it is on a first come first serve basis. The more popular accommodation such as Marlborough and Solsbury and Woodland Court generally fill up very quickly. The older (but still really good) accommodation such as Eastwood and Westwood might be a bit slower. All first year undergraduates are guaranteed accommodation, so whilst you might not necessarily end up in your first choice, most people I know where happy wherever then ended up.

    If you haven't had the chance to look at accommodation yet, then these virtual tours can give you a good idea what the different types are like, and if you have any questions please feel free to ask

    Thanks

    Hi,

    This is the thread for those studying at University of Bath, and I don't think we offer Fashion Design as a course. I think you might be looking for Bath Spa University, their accommodation website can be found here, or their dedicated Student Room forum is here,

    Thanks

    Does anyone know how much emphasis is put on the 3rd subject? I'm doing maths, further maths and physics. I think I'm going to get A*A*C. The offer is A*AA. Will the C mean a definite no or will the 2A*s make up for the C? I'm so worried and really want to go to bath
