The campus is amazing, the lecturers are amazing, and Bath in general is amazing. The University is so welcoming and there's ample opportunity. The accommodation is cosy, the facilities are great and the nightlife isn’t half bad, either. You’ll have such a great time – I wish I could do it all again!
