Application deadline details:
Bath University - where, thanks to the name, some societies are called BRA, BUMS and BUST and being part of them is just as much of a laugh. It takes at most a 15 minute walk from one end of the campus to another, you'll pass the many things that the campus has to offer. The lake, the library, the coffee shop, the canteen, people singing and dancing, the post office, the shop, the bar.. you name it. The university came top for satisfaction in 2013 and the city is one of the safest places to be. If the uni doesn't have something the city will, and both are absolutely beautiful.
Good overall university with better than average teaching compared to other unis. All the things you expect a uni to offer is here. Poor nightlife but not you’ve got to make the most of what’s on offer. Small campus uni gives it a community feel.
