The University of Bath is a public research university in the United Kingdom, located in Bath, Somerset. Following the Robbins Report, it was granted a royal charter in 1966, along with a number of other institutions. Bath, like the Universities of Bristol and the West of England, can trace its roots back to the Merchant Venturers' Technical College, which was founded in Bristol in 1595 as a school by the Society of Merchant Venturers. The university's main campus, which was purpose-built in 1964 in the modernist style of the time, is located on Claverton Down, a site overlooking Bath. The university is a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the Association of MBAs, the European Quality Improvement System, the European University Association, Universities UK and GW4.
In 2000, the university opened its second campus, Oakfield Campus, on Marlowe Road in Swindon, on land leased from the Council. The site, formerly known as Oakfield School, was jointly funded by the university and Swindon Council. The Swindon campus of The University of Bath offered undergraduate courses in childhood studies and social work. In the summer of 2008, the campus was closed.
Engineering, physical sciences, mathematics, and technology have been the university's major academic strengths. The university now excels in management, humanities, architecture, and social sciences. Courses place a strong emphasis on vocational education; the university recommends students take a one-year industry placement in the penultimate year of the course, though these placements are not officially recognised on students' final degree certificates. Bath has 15 subjects rated "excellent" in the most recent government assessments (the highest on the scale). Pharmacy and Pharmacology; Business and Management (AMBA accredited); Architecture and Civil Engineering; Economics; Computer Science; Electronic and Electrical Engineering; Mechanical Engineering (IMechE accredited); Mathematics, Statistics, and Operations Research; Education; Molecular Biosciences; Biosciences; Physics and Astronomy; Politics; Sport; Social Policy and Administration.
