Dear overseas partners,
Happy new year!
Welcome to the January 2023 edition of the University of Bath Agents' Newsletter. We hope you had a peaceful Christmas and a good start to the New Year.
This month we have a number of updates to share with you including our latest Postgraduate Virtual Open Day, our annual overview and the latest scholarships news among other topics. Explore the table of contents below to make sure you don't miss any important updates.
Please share this among your teams and with all those involved in counselling prospective students. If you have any questions, please contact the PGT Recruitment Team: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Annual Overview^
We are pleased to share our annual overview for 2021/2. The report shares key updates and highlights from all areas of our university in a year when we have been named The Times and The Sunday Times University of the Year 2023.
Please do take the time to read it here if you can.
Postgraduate Virtual Open Day^
Our next Postgraduate Virtual Open Day is taking place on Wednesday February 8 from 11am-3pm GMT. As usual, students will be able to join our live webinars to hear from experts from across the university as well as from current postgraduate students. There will also be a live chat running throughout the day to answer questions on all topics.
- Admissions, fees & funding
- Student life
We are pleased to announce after a pause and then running at a reduced rate, Postgraduate campus tours are now once again available for prospective Master's students who wish to visit us in person.
The tours are run on a one-to-one basis at a time and date to suit the student and are led by a current postgraduate student ambassador.
Undergraduate Admissions Update^
Bath is noticing an increase in popularity and therefore a larger number of applications. For some courses this may require us to make decisions later in the cycle, so please do manage your student’s expectations. Some decisions may not be notified to UCAS before March/April. We will endeavour to process decisions as soon as we can but must apply equity when considering all ‘on-time’ applications.
Should you have a student who is already in receipt of a decision, please encourage continued engagement and review of all emails and information that we will continue to send. Especially for those who need to take English tests etc, please book ahead. Availability of tests can become a problem for many and we do not want this to be an issue of acceptance.
New MSc Course^
We are pleased to announce a new course open for applications for September 2023 below, with a placement option also available.
Who is it suited to?
The course is designed for those wishing to develop a strong mathematical foundation in data science and statistics and apply their skills to help tackle global challenges in healthcare.
How is it different from the other data science courses that we offer?
There is a summary of the difference between our four different data science degrees here, which includes a video about the new course.
