What’s it like to study a Masters in Bath?
Bath became famous in the 18th century as the site of a natural mineral spa believed – along with similar springs in Europe – to have medicinal properties.
Large numbers of visitors arrived each year, particularly from London, to spend ‘the season’ at Bath and ‘take the waters.’ One such was the famous author, Jane Austen, whose fiction depicts the city’s time as an important hub of Regency culture.
Postgraduate students in Bath live and study in a city that remains one of the most beautiful in the UK and is visited by large numbers of tourists each year.
If you fancy indulging your inner Austenite, you’ll be able to visit some of the places the famous author lived and stayed in, or explore beautiful examples of Georgian architecture such as the Royal Crescent that have changed little since Austen’s day.
Those whose interests go further back can visit the Roman Baths that gave the city its name, or, if you simply want to do some shopping you’ll find plenty of opportunities for retail therapy in Bath’s attractive commercial precincts.
Of course, Bath’s heritage as one of Britain’s most popular resort towns has also left it with a range of theatres, concert halls and other entertainment venues.
