In 1852 the Bath School of Art was established after the Great Exhibition, and there begins our long and prestigious history. The School enjoyed a reputation as one of the leading art schools in the country, and some of Britain’s best known artists, including Walter Sickert and Howard Hodgkin, studied and taught at what was to become the Bath School of Art and Design.

My experience at bath spa university in 2019
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I think that the programme was quite easy and very good in the sense that we explored many different programming languages while not focusing much on mathematical skills. I really learned how to study effectively and how to live independently which was very helpful. The course lasted 3 years and has helped me build a portfolio to show to potential employers
