    I have an offer for maths from Bath and am so close to putting it as my firm choice for next year. I have been on open days a couple of times to see the campus and it seems really nice. However from looking at the information in the prospectus and the website I was just wondering if Bath is full of science guys. I don't have anything against them (I'm one myself), but do you miss the people who do art subjects?

    Not really! There are quite a few subjects that aren't sciences, for example Management, European Studies & MFLs, Politics and so on. It doesn't make much of a difference to be honest, you barely even notice it.

    I wouldn't worry about it. One thing I have noticed is that Bath lacks very eccentric arty students that I have witnessed at Bristol, but that is not bad thing! In fact, all the science people seem really nice, it's those c**** from management you have to watch out for (one in particular named oliver holt)!

    It is true that not all science students are geeks but people do tend to generalise science & engineering students as geeks subjectively.
    As for example, The Sunday Times University Guide comments that Imperial College’s social scene is not that social after all! They say: “the lack of arts students means geeky people”.
    It’s to a certain extent true, you know. With so much to study, these students often create their own worlds of activities that are quite bizarre to the rest!

    I've not noticed that at Bath to be honest... everyone seems fairly normal regardless of what they study! Of course there are a few odd ones, but you get those anywhere.

    But perhaps it's because all these 'geeks' don't go out anywhere!

    I consider myself arty, just not in the ussual sense, i have good ideas/imagination and can do 'art' on photoshop, how ever as far as drawing goes, it is far from my strong point.

    As far as being a geek because i do engineering, i am the biggest geek you ever met! lol kidding. If you saw my book shelf the science books would probably convince you im a geek, how ever i also do a lot of sports and never been called a geek or anything of that sort, so i doubt im a geek, i hate star trek so doesnt that rule me out all together? :P

    i dont think there is any link between bath being a science university and the social scene or how geeky the people are. Subjects dont determine if ur geeky or not, or whether you are social or not, its all to do with the individual and you will meet great people while you're here but also there are a few weirdos as with any university.

    Just because one guys is a loser from the management section doesnt mean u have to "watch out for those c**** from management".. Thats just dumb

    I'm doin biology, and do find the subject rly interesting (n I spose im not bad at it either), but i wouldn't consider myself to be a geek (apart from a few weeks before exams whilst im swottin away! lol). In fact, people's first impressions of me are usually a bit dizzy an crazy lol.
    Don't rly think it's fair to generalise to be honest, everyone is different, so don't stereotype us scientists! lol.
