University of Bath Student BloggersWatch this thread
Just wanted to make you aware that if you are considering coming to the Univerisity of Bath, then we have a great new blog site written by first year students.
The aim of our student blog is to provide an insight into what it is like to live and study at Bath, as well as to provide useful advice to those looking to apply to study at university.
There's lots of great blogs on the wide variety of activites you can get involved in here at Bath such as Harry's blog describing how he has gotten involved in formula student, the formula one racing team based at Bath.
These students were in your position only a year ago so they have lots of great help and advice about the application process, for example Matthew's blog about personal statements. He has lots of great tips and advice about what to include in your personal statement and some common mistakes to avoid.
There's also lots of blogs covering moving in and Freshers week so you can find out a bit more about what to expect when you get here.
If you want to know any more about what you read in the blogs or have any other questions at all about University of Bath, please feel free to ask.
Our first year bloggers have officially survived their first semester!
They've all been really busy as Christmas draws nearer, experiencing all that Bath has to offer over Christmas and celebrating with flatmates and socials.
If you haven't taken a look at the blog before, its the perfect chance for you to find out what university life at Bath is like from the perspective of a first year. They write all about the highs and lows of student life, so you can find out just what to expect when you arrive next year!
Our latest blog posts include Mirella telling us the best reasons to study in England for international students, Alexandra let us know all about the benefits of joining a society or club when at university and Matthew got into the Christmas spirit and investigated all the things going on in Bath at this time of year.
Over the next few weeks (after a well-deserved break, of course) our bloggers will be writing essays and revising for their January exams so if you want to find out a bit more about these be sure to check the blog in January.

Second year MLES student
I can imagine now you have received your offers and applied for accommodation, you'll be thinking a lot about university and your future degree course.
I just want to bring to your attention a new blog post about doing a placement.
A large percentage of students at Bath do a placement, the universities reputation with industry is one of the reasons I chose Bath in the first place. I did a placement last year and cannot recommend it enough. Not only does it give you work experience for job prospects after uni, it reinforces a lot of the theory that you learn about, giving you a proper understanding of some real world applications of your area of study. Not to mention all the skills it can teach you e.g. presenting and public speaking, report writing, working in teams, time management and the list goes on.
So if you are thinking of doing a placement then I would give the blog a read, it's got lots of useful information and advice.
Final Year Chemistry Student
Does anyone know about the bath award and how long it takes to complete and how much work per week has to be put into it to get it and also what volunteering stuff is available? Does it matter if I don't go to a Russell group uni but go to bath
