There are 10 great reasons why students choose Bath Spa University:-
1) Excellent Reputation
We can trace our history back over 160 years to the original Bath School of Art, so our reputation is built on tradition and success. Our applications have risen by 40% over the last 5 years and are still rising, and our application to places ratio is strong. So we're modern and progressive too. Our course mix and structure is unique, and the quality of our teaching is excellent, which reflects our commitment to our people and our students.
2) Rewarding Experience
Our student satisfaction rates are exceptional: We scored 83% overall satisfaction in the latest National Student Survey (NSS), and 86% of our students will complete their programme of study compared with just 78% in the UK as a whole. The best predicted performance of any modern university.
3) Top Quality Teaching
Our teaching is of a very high standard, but don't just take our word for it. We're ranked 7th in the UK for quality of Teaching and Learning in the Times Higher 2010, and we scored 88% in NSS 2011. Our teachers are engaged in the research and development of innovative and creative teaching techniques, and always ensure they make themselves available to students to offer help and guidance.
4) Flexible Courses
We offer the full range of creative, cultural and humanities-based courses, with an enterprise focus. Our courses are modular and flexible, and students can explore different study options. All of this is underpinned by state-of-the-art facilities, collaborative learning spaces, learning tutorials, and professional advice and guidance. So we deliver everything needed to realise potential.
5) Exciting Career Prospects
Our support and partnerships connect our students to a wide range of career pathways and employment opportunities. Our graduates enjoy prospects above the national average with 91.9% of graduates in work or further study after six months, and in 2011 we had our highest recorded number of graduates known to be in work.
6) Strong Caring Ethos
Our caring ethos runs through everything we do. Our students rate their tutors and lecturers for the support and accessibility they deliver. Our student services offer advice on anything from finances to homesickness, as well as offering disability support and so much more. Yet it doesn't end there. Our Green Focus environmental policies care for our campus, and we're ranked 7th out of 40 universities in the People and Planet Green League 2011.
7) Happy Community
Our community values creativity, culture and enterprise. It’s happy and thriving, and reinforced by all the services you might expect and more: our network of student support services, and library and learning facilities; our welcoming and supportive approach; our promotion of accessibility; our teachers who can be called on for help, guidance and support. And our wide range of extra-curricular courses, clubs, activities and work-based opportunities and volunteering, make our community fulfilling, rewarding – and successful.
8) Historic Campuses
Our campuses are renowned and some are exceptional and historically significant. We take great care to ensure they provide an inspirational setting today and we invest in our campuses to make sure they meet the needs of future generations of students. Our modern facilities are designed to blend in sympathetically into the environment, and our students tell us it’s a great environment in which to succeed.
9) Internationally Connected
Our international partnerships are spreading across the globe. Our links with an array of businesses, organisation and institutions contribute significantly to the knowledge economy at home and abroad. So our graduates leave us as ambitious global citizens and can be seen at international conferences, tours and events, ranging from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to the Canadian ‘International Next Way’.
10) Safe and Secure
We provide an environment that allows our students to concentrate on what matters most. So not only are we financially secure, we also have on-going capital investment plans. The city of Bath itself is renowned internationally, and it enjoys an enviable reputation for being enjoyable and safe to live in, with an intimate and vibrant sense of community apparent across its many coffee bars, restaurants, galleries and theatres.
