In 1966, we received the Royal Charter, and we have now become the top 10 universities in the UK, and have a high reputation for research and teaching.
Our mission is to provide world-class research and teaching, educate our graduates to become future leaders and innovators, and benefit a wider population through our research, business and influence.
We are a truly international community with more than 120,000 alumni from 173 countries around the world. Nearly 30% of our academics are international with around the same proportion in our student population.
Our employees are vital to building a vibrant and innovative academic community at the university, and we attach great importance to working with others in our global network of contacts in the commercial, professional, public and voluntary sectors.
Our beautifully landscaped campus provides a true community atmosphere for faculty, staff and students. Overlooking the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath, it provides a friendly and safe working environment.
