Bath is  defined by the Georgian architecture and its history as the home of the hot springs, and this has combined to create a beautiful small city. As a prospective student it is easy to forget how important the location is in your decision making process. If you are a rugby fan the Rec is one of the best places to watch Premier League matches. Given the size of the city, getting around is easily done on foot and if you are based at Newton Park campus (Bath Spa University) then a reliable network of buses is easily accessible. The population is close to 100,000, of whom 20,000 are students. Not a bad ratio, however, many students have been known to make the short trip to Bristol for a slightly livelier nightlife.
