Elena, a Management and Marketing student at the University of Bath, has answered your top questions:
What support is available to students who are struggling for any reason?
There is so much support available. The Wellbeing service in the 4W building provides drop-in sessions and if you can’t make those sessions, you can either have a session through emails or on the phone. The team always checks up on you even after one meeting, to be there for you and to see what else they can do for you. The Virgil Building provides more in-depth counselling sessions, depending on the reason, whilst also offering a mental health assessment. The SU advice team is also there for you, right in the centre of the campus, in the SU building. They’re all so lovely and always up for a chat.
What social events do you offer when people first join to help people make friends and settle in?
The taster sessions from Freshers’ Week are amazing! You meet so many new people and you can maintain that friendship if you continue doing that activity together. The language classes are also great for bonding with people long-term! The society Bath Entrepreneurs always organised interesting events with amazing speakers and it’s a great way to meet people who have the same interests as you! Getting involved in volunteering opportunities is also a great way to speak to a variety of people!
What will my first few weeks at your uni be like?
The first few weeks are super overwhelming because you create so many memories all at once! Keep yourself together, don’t get freshers’ flu and try as many new things as you can!
Is it a campus or city based university? What advantages do you think this offers?
Bath is a campus university and the main advantage is definitely the community feeling that it provides. You immediately feel at home! By the time you finish your first year, you become so attached to the campus and to having security every second of every single day, that you simply don’t want to leave!
How far is the campus from the town centre and what is the public transport like?
I love walking to the town centre especially when the weather is really nice. It takes 30 mins to get there. If you want to get there in 10-15 mins, there are always buses running! Sometimes the queues can get a bit insane, but the transport is great, fast and as reliable as it can be.
How far apart are different university buildings, and how far away is the accommodation?
Being in campus is such a blessing! We do take it for granted when we live there. Everything is so close to everything! You jump out of bed and the lecture is 5 mins away, 10 if the building is in the opposite part of the campus. It depends which accommodation you live in, but there are so many shortcuts you can take, you just have to learn the tricks.
