Good campus, but difficult to get to when you are not living in first year accomodation on campus. However there is still some online teaching still taking place. I would also like more laboratory sessions.

The pandemic forced my first year to be almost entirely online, with only some labs running in semester 1 and then being entirely online in semester 2 (2 semesters per year). the online experience was a mixed bag but mostly the recorded lectures were good quality. This year has been much better being in person and actually being able to interact with lecturers and other students. Many of the lecturers are passionate about their subject and are often doing research in that particular field which is great to see how and where the subject is applied. The pace of lectures and labs can be very intense, with semester 1 being a straight 11 weeks of full time study (more than full time!) without a reading week. This means that if you get behind by more than a week you are not in a good position to catch up at all. Semester 2 has a 2 week break after week 9 which is slighter nicer, but exams dovetail directly onto the end on the semester so it's hardly a respite. Most modules have a problems class weekly which is good but personally I would prefer smaller group 'tutorial' type settings for problems classes where you can really discuss the subject as oppose to just trawling through questions. The experimental module is coursework focussed and is a good break from exams, albeit still keeping the intense work schedule with almost weekly deadlines for pre-session lab summaries or programming based analysis work. The city of Bath is stunning and the campus is not far away so it's entirely feasible to walk back from campus (walking to campus is also feasible but it's quite a big hill). The campus is relatively small, open and functional. Some call the architecture dated but if Bauhaus is your thing you will probably love it.

Don’t get caught up in the nightlife and don’t buy the Freshers wristband. Also, you won’t make friend at first but eventually you will do don’t worry too much.

The environment around the university and within the city itself is splendid. For this reason I believe it’s a great place to study and a change from where I come from.

Student services have been overwhelmed making it hard for everyone to receive help when they need at the moment So many sports and societies make it great to meet people

Bath is an amazing place to study, the city is so scenic and offers everything from small independent cafes to pubs and clubs. It’s a slightly small university but it is one of the best with state of the art equipment and amazing lectures. Bath offers both the feel of the countryside as it is surrounded by rolling hills and lots of scenery but also the feel of a town with the hustle and bustle of the main shopping and social areas. The campus itself has loads to offer with an amazing view of Bath. The golf course behind it and lots of open green spaces to eat on a sunny day. I however would say that the parade has a slightly dated feel but none the less the surrounding make up for it. One think i do think that Bath excels at is student support, I have always been offered support when needed and everyone is so friendly and happy to help (even though that sounds cheesy, it’s true!).
