Dating back to 1966, the University of Bath is a prestigious institution ranking within the UK’s top 10 universities. The University Charter sets out the principles which have now guided our teaching and research for 50 years. The objects of the University are ‘to advance learning and knowledge by teaching and research, particularly in science and technology, and in close association with industry and commerce'. Long before most universities were looking for funding from business, we worked closely with companies on joint projects, leading to new technologies and new approaches in research.
We have built an international reputation for world-leading research and teaching. We strive to inspire, encourage and educate future leaders and innovators. We work hard to foster a welcoming, diverse and inclusive culture, where enterprise and innovation is strongly encouraged while ensuring students from all backgrounds can reach their potential.
We're highly ranked in independent league tables for overall performance, student satisfaction and graduate employment; we’re a university that's well-placed to help you succeed.
In the 2021 Research Excellence Framework (REF), 90% of our research was classed as world-leading or internationally excellent. We are ranked joint 12th for Research Quality in the Complete University Guide 2022.
We carry out research that makes a difference to society - like helping children with chronic pain, protecting people from cyber-attacks, improving access to justice for autistic people, and researching ways to help with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Building on our existing research strengths, the Bath Beacons is one of our initiatives that align with national priorities, empowering our researchers to find new approaches to public health, reduce the impact of climate change, and discover new ways for technology to enhance human performance.
