How Bath is topping the charts, plus your updates and events

Posted in: Bath, Newsletter, On campus, Research

There’s been plenty to celebrate on campus as we welcome students back in person for the new academic year.

For starters, we’ve been named among the world’s top universities for graduate employability, and four of our Humanities & Social Sciences subjects placed in the top 3 in the UK.

We're delighted to have received an Athena Swan Institutional Silver Award, recognising Bath's commitment to promoting gender equality.

Our Gold Scholarship Programme, which supports students from disadvantaged backgrounds, has also been awarded Highest Impact University Initiative.

And finally, everyone’s favourite Claverton Down residents are also thriving. With a little help from staff in 4 South, five new ducklings took to the lake last month.
