Undergraduate Admissions Update^
We have received a high number of applications for September 2022. Places are very competitive however we are processing decisions as quickly as possible. We continue to communicate with applicants to keep them informed and updated. Our aim is to advise all decisions by the end of April (for those who apply by the 26 January deadline).
Many of our courses will remain open for new applications after the 26 January deadline. However, this is reviewed regularly and some courses may close during the cycle. Please refer to UCAS for published vacancies. We encourage applications are made as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Please continue to remind applicants to check our email communications for updates, undertake English tests (if required) in advance, reply to email requests from the University, and upload documents to their Bath Portal Account when required. This will help us when processing applications.
If you have any specific cases that you may be experiencing and would like to advise us of e.g. exam cancellations, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
