Your year at Bath

A year of opportunity

Our MSc courses last 12 months. During your year with us there will be many ways to add to your learning with study, research and career workshops.

Your dedicated Student Experience Officers are here to help with any personal or academic issues you might have. They also organise social events to help you get to know fellow students and enjoy life outside of the classroom.

In June, you’ll also have the chance to experience the international business world with a Global Residency.

Global Residencies are optional for all MSc students. We cover some costs, but you will still need between £1000 and £2000 (subject to exchange rates). This is for travel, a visa, the programme and spending money.

We need a minimum number of participants to run Global Residencies. This is normally at least 15 students.
