<p>Wonderful landscape and views to be explored whilst carrying out your studies. The campus consists of modern and period buildings to provide a contrast. The university has a community feeling with quite a small number of student comparitive to other universities.&nbsp;</p>

University has been a very rewarding and largely enjoyable experience. I have met some of the most amazing people at Bath Spa University, both fellow students and lecturers alike. I have had the opportunity to delve into areas of Literature and Education that I have never had the opportunity to do before.

Inclusivity: 
Our University is leading the way in support for LGBT students, with LGBT rights always being discussed within the University. We have an equality rep who works full time for the University and is constantly working on schemes that will raise the equality status within the University. We have recently added inclusive gender-neutral bathrooms and also hold a Bath Spa pride festival at our SU.
Health and wellbeing services: 
We have both onsight doctors and mental health support, however, both of the services are overstretched and it can take months to get seen by our mental health support team which puts a lot of students off using the service. Similarly, the doctors can only help with minor issues and often refer students to the local hospital, which eliminates any benefit from having a University surgery.
Support for international students: 
Support and facilities for disabled students: 
I can't really comment on this, as I am not a disabled student, all I can say is that our University is fully equipped for Wheelchair users, has multiple students of different abilities and has a loop in most lecture and seminar theatres to help students who are hearing impaired.
