About University: Bath Spa is a relatively new university that has an emphasis on creativity, culture and enterprise. It focuses on teaching quality and preparation for employment. Applications are on the increase and the university is expanding its international focus. It is split over two main sites with some satellite teaching sites. Newton Park may be a few miles from town, but it's so lovely looking you couldn't possibly mind. Bath city itself is equally dreamy, and nearby Bristol is the place to party.

Bursaries: The university provides non-repayable bursaries worth up to £500 a year for students from lower-income households on a full-time undergraduate course. These bursaries are means-tested, so the amount you get depends on your household income.

The National Scholarship Programme award supports students from low-income households (less than £25,000 a year). The award of £2,000 is provided to eligible first year students new to higher education. Recipients also receive a £500 follow-on award in future years.

Accommodation: Halls of residence vary between £93 and £165 a per person per week. Contract lengths are 40, 45, 48 and 51 weeks. This includes all bills for heating, lighting and hot water. All student accommodation is self-catering.

Private sector rented accommodation prices vary and start from around £90+ per week. Bills are usually only included in private accommodation where a student has a room in a landlord's house, so you should expect to pay bills for electric, gas and water on top of this. Landlords generally ask for one month's rent as deposit, and often ask for half-rent payments in July and August as a retainer, although some landlords charge 12 months' full rent.

Student accommodation for eligible first-year students is split across Newton Park Campus, Bankside House (near to Sion Hill Campus), UNITE Private Halls and University secured Independent Housing. Student Housing Services offers help and advice on a range of housing issues (both in Halls and the Private Sector), and applications for student housing are made online once students accept their offer, making Bath Spa their firm choice.
