Practical problem solving

Universities not only make a difference through the gift of education. They provide ideas and discoveries that make a difference to people’s lives around the world.

The bright minds in our research centres are unlocking the answers to problems we all care about, every day. Sand to keep vaccines safe in the heat. Coffee dregs to cook up biofuels. UV light to help doctors diagnose burn infections.  The list goes on.
It’s world leading – and world changing stuff. So it’s only natural that we’d want to do more of it, for the benefit of all.

That’s where you come in. Enabling more bright minds to discover and creating the right environment for them to reach their potential.

Scholarships to enable passionate researchers to stay on and do a Masters. Fellowships to fast track our work into finding a cure for Alzheimer’s. Specialized microscopes to study cancer cells. The UK’s first centre for evolution research. It’s all thanks to you.

Talk to us about your passion and we’ll show you where your investment can start making a difference today. The possibilities are endless. Join us and be part of the solution.


“Our doctoral students are bright, highly educated, committed, and engaged in their research. We need to be able to attract and fund the very best people to come to do their doctoral studies here at Bath, and being in a position to offer funding for their studies is an essential part of that.”
