Bath Spa University
Bath Spa University can trace its origins back to 1898, when parts of it were known as the Bath Academy of Art. The Newton Park campus – which has some medieval buildings – was first leased by Bath Teacher Training College in 1947 from the Duchy of Cornwall. Bath College of Higher Education was formed in 1975 from the merger of Bath College of Education and Newton Park College of Education and it gained university status as Bath Spa University in 2005. Despite it being a relatively young institution, the university has enjoyed high rankings in various league tables and has seen a dramatic increase in undergraduate applications.
Bath Spa University has around 7,000 students in total, with over one third of students over the age of 21. There are six main schools of study.
