If you have any experience of Bath Spa, would you say overall that the university was good or bad for you?

Great uni, lovely campus located just outside Bath in the countryside; the majority of buildings have just been built in the last few years so it's a very modern uni; the lecturers are very knowledgable with lots of industry practise and the different types accommodation that the uni offers are some of the best in the country (they have on-campus and city accommodation).

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Thank you for replying - what course do you study? Do you have any experience with the music/English facilities?

What's the city life like? Is it culturally diverse?

I graduated Bath Spa in 2016 in Psychology. It is a beautiful campus, beautiful city and I loved my life in Bath- wouldn't change a thing. The negative points would be that their admin is atrocious- seems like they have no idea what their students are doing and when... My friend required extra time for exams, which was confirmed... Day of exam, they didn't have a room or moderator for her... Another who went on erasmus only to be emailed saying she hadn't turned in her coursework or turned up to any of the lectures because they still had her signed up for all the modules (not sure how that even happened). I received some letters about poor attendance when I had been to every single lecture and seminar available in my second year... I also had a lecture clash, so I had to miss the first hour of a 2 hour lecture every Friday for a year (that was in my first year so unrelated).

It also depends on what course you want to do- it is wonderful for creative subjects and I've heard pretty good for business too. It doesn't have the best rep for psychology but I'm doing my MSc at UCL now so Bath Spa's rep doesn't really matter!

Thank you - that is very helpful. I wish you luck with your MSc!

The universities there are pretty culturally diverse, however, if you look at the residents, it's pretty much just rich, middle aged white people, tourists and hipsters. If you want cultural diversity, Bristol is a short train journey away! I mean, Za Za Bazaar alone is worth the trip, I would actually make the 2 1/2 car trip just to go there :drool:

I'm studying business and management but one of my flatmates are studying commercial music, I believe, and it is a very good course.

Hey, I absolutely love the uni! you get a bit of everything with the uni, you get modern, old, chilled, busy (bath/Bristol). If you are looking for a university where you can be yourself without feeling like you have to act up to impress then bath spa is for you! As it is a fairly small uni in terms of numbers it great as the tutors know you personally and usually have a lot of time if you have issues or need help with the projects.
