Since gaining Royal Charter status in 1966, the University of Bath has enjoyed a special relationship with sport. Our rich history of scholars and successes – both national and international – represents the potential for athletes based at the University and, combined with our academic opportunities, offers students a unique blend of first class sport with first class education.
