Your year at Bath

A year of opportunity. A lifetime of possibility.

Our MSc courses last 12 months. During your year with us you’ll have lots of opportunities to add to your learning.

You will not be alone. We have dedicated Student Experience Officers to support you. They provide a confidential drop-in advice service and can 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 the classroom.

In June, you’ll have the chance to experience the international business world through our Global Residencies.

Global Residencies are optional for all MSc students.

The trip includes

We subsidise Global Residences but you will need to pay some costs. This is normally between £1000 and £2000 (subject to exchange rates). This is for travel expenses, a visa, the programme and spending money

We'll invite all MSc students to apply for a place on a Global Residency. Destinations are subject to change and availability.
