Students will have the opportunity to find out more about our courses with a range of lectures and taster sessions delivered by some of our excellent academics, as well as an introductory talk about the University of Bath.
Each session will be held at 11 am (GMT) and will last for 1 hour, with the opportunity to ask questions students may have about that particular topic or the course. The link to book onto any of the sessions is here. Talks will be recorded so if you are unable to attend let us know and we will ensure we send you a copy. Please share the information with any prospective students, parents, and of course, if you or your colleagues would like to take part yourselves, you are of course, very welcome to attend.
