    Hey!

    I'm Elena and I'm in my first year studying Management with Marketing. I thought I would make a thread for everyone who is interested in studying this subject at University of Bath. If you want to ask anything, feel free to quote me or send me a pm if that's easier for you.

    My experience at Bath has been amazing so far and I'm more than happy to share my thoughts with all of you. It's such a great uni and there is a lot to discover about it, it totally exceeded my expectations.

    My course also includes a 12 month placement in the 3rd year and I'm looking forward to that. I live in Norwood, which is the accommodation right above the SU, in campus. I have seen most of the other accommodations in campus as well so I can give you a lot of information about them as well.

    Can't wait to talk to you all and good luck to everyone who is applying!

    Hi a few a questions.
    I want to get accommodation at Northwood so what's the general living there like? Sharing bathrooms? The lounge/kitchen area, is it social, is that how you made friends?
    Also I'm applying for Maths and in general Maths students get a pretty bad rep, do you know any Maths students or what it's like for them?
    Thanks

    Hello!

    Norwood was my first choice when I applied for accommodation, but to be honest all the accommodations are amazing so whatever you will be allocated, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

    Although, when making your own choices, it depends on what your exact preferences are. Eastwood is more like a neighbourhood with little houses, whereas the Quads is like a block of flats, along with Brendon Court, Westwood and Norwood. I found that the rooms in Norwood are actually a lot bigger than the rooms in other accommodations. And even though it's a single bed, its size is pretty good.

    Norwood is more noisy because it's just above the Students' Union. This is why the 5th and the 6th floors get free tickets to the events in the club's campus. These events are called Score and Klass and they take place on Wednesday and on Saturday. If you don't go out that much, the noise could be bothering you, but there's nothing a pair of headphones won't solve!

    The huge advantage is that Norwood is right in the centre of the campus, so you are super close to everything such as the library, all the restaurants and all the lecture buildings.

    It's a really social place and it's really easy to go to other flats and to other floors and meet new people. Besides the flat's social space, everyone in Norwood gets a huge common social space on the 4th floor where you can organise parties. Because the campus is more like a community, you can make friends everywhere anyway, not only in your accommodation.

    I have three Maths students in my flat and they are doing just fine, they are have a lot of fun and they enjoy their course. I don't think they get a bad rep at all, I haven't even thought about this before!

    Good luck and don't hesitate to quote me if you have anything else to ask!

    Elena

    Edit: Sharing a bathroom isn't an issue at all, there is never a queue and the toilets and the showers are being cleaned weekly. We share two toilets and two showers between five people so that's fine.

    Hey!

    I didn't do A levels or IB so I don't know if my answer will help you in any way. Because I did the Romanian Baccalaureate, they requested 9/10 overall with 9.5 in a science and 9 in the other 2 subjects. I got 9.5 overall with 9.8 in a science.

    I was really scared they wouldn't make me an offer if I didn't get the grades, but I met people who got lower grades and they were still accepted. So they won't just look at your academic results. I think your personal essay matters a lot and it's an important part of their decision.

    Hey Max,

    I wouldn't know how many applicants are per place as it must be different every single year, but it is quite competitive since University of Bath is ranked first for Marketing and second for Business Management, in the UK.

    What I can tell you for sure is that we are 200 students from Management, International Management and Management with Marketing. We all study the same subjects in our first year.

    For more useful information go on this page: Management with Marketing including a placement

    I didn't do A levels so I can't answer that, but a lot of people in my course who did Business Studies or Economics found that to be really useful. If you click the link I provided you will see on the website that their preference for A level subjects include a combination of mathematics/sciences with arts/humanities.

    If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to quote me! Good luck!
