          • 1992-1996, Bachelor of Science (BSc) and UGCE (Undergraduate Certificate of Education)

            If I am still enjoying doing the same job 19 years after graduating from Bath University, then it is simply because I was given the right tools to forge ahead with my chosen career during the four years I did at Bath University. I can tell people about my experience but they have to go there to really feel what I felt. As a foreign student I was never a foreigner in Bath. I felt that I was in a second home. Home it felt cause it was sad to leave after four wonderful years. Thank you Bath University.

          • 2012-2016, Bachelor’s Degree

            Apart from the stellar teaching, the wide array of societies and sports club means that the University of Bath is by far the best university I know of for helping its students to grow more than academically, but also as people too.
