Bath College is a Further and Higher Education College located in the heart of Bath & NE Somerset.
From its two campuses in Central Bath and Radstock, Bath College offers Vocational and Professional courses, Apprenticeships and Love2learn leisure courses.
The City Centre Campus gives students the opportunity to be in the middle of Bath’s vibrant atmosphere, which is easily accessible from Bristol, Wiltshire and the surrounding areas.
Bath College has far more than just classrooms with industry standard facilities to suit each discipline.
The City Centre Campus houses the Care Academy, where Health & Social Care, Early Years and Childcare students have fantastic links with St John’s Foundation and Zebedee’s nursery.
The Shrubbery Restaurant is where Hospitality and Catering students train before going onto work in one of Bath’s many first class restaurants, all the while offering affordable meals to the public.
Above the restaurant you’ll find the International students developing their English language skills, while next door Floristry students are putting together beautiful hand tied creations.
Upstairs in the main Roper Building passers-by will notice The Academy, home of the Hair, Beauty and Complementary Therapy department. Students train at the City Centre Campus on members of the public before going on to work for the large Spas and Beauty Salons across the city and beyond.
The Art and Design department is well established in the creative hub that is the Forge building; home to Photography, Art, Fashion & Textiles and Graphic Design.
Creative Media students can be identified quickly as they are so often found behind a camera or editing in the Mac suite. The College theatre is always buzzing whether with Performing and Production Arts or Music students rehearsing.
Students studying Accounting, Business, IT, Travel & Tourism or Uniformed Public Services are spread across the campus in classrooms studying hard in between going out and and gaining real industry experience.
Sport students can often be found in the kitchens learning about nutrition or with their heads down training to be coaches or physiotherapists. Many of them then head out of town to the Odd Down football pitch, taking advantage of the College's male and female Bath City Football Academies.
