About us

Bath Spa University is focused on creative enterprise and guided by our four values of respect, inclusivity, collaboration and sustainability. We teach around 8,000 students on a set of campuses around Bath, with most being located at Newton Park, including a listed Georgian house and grounds, or Locksbrook Road, our new city-centre art and design campus.  Our research centres focus on creative industries and humanities.

Our purpose is to challenge our students and staff to realise their talent and thrive, for their own benefit and for the wider good. By doing this we will think and make the world better.

The Go Global Team sits within the wider Research and Graduate Affairs (RGA) team, although we are predominantly undergraduate focused in our work we fit within RGA for our International focus. We are a busy, supportive and relationship-building focused team, working on a range of initiatives to help students study, work and carry out research abroad. In Go Global we support students in both directions (incoming and outgoing) through their international experience. The student experience is at the heart of everything that we do.
