About this university
The University of Bath is a university located in the city of the same name in the south-west of England that received its royal charter in 1966. Its roots came from a technical school established in nearby Bristol in 1856, the Bristol Trade School and a pharmaceutical school in the city called the Bath School of Pharmacy. It joined the Technical College, as it became in 1929 and went through several name changes until it came under the Ministry of Education. It finally became the University of Bath in 1963.
When attending the university from outside the UK, there is a variety of help and assistance available to students. This starts from the application process and goes right through the time spent at the university. There is practical help including how to accept the offer to attend the university and organising legal paperwork such as visas and immigration papers. There is also help with English language skills for those who donâ€™t speak the language and an international induction program to assist with integration within the city and area. There is even help with accommodation eligibility and student funding where needed as well as an airport collection service.
