The University of Bath

The University of Bath is one of the UK’s leading universities for both research and teaching excellence. Bath is rated ‘Gold’ in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) – the Government’s assessment of teaching quality in universities. According to the Research Excellence Framework 2014, 87% of its research was defined as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. We are currently ranked 6th best university in the UK according to the Guardian University Guide 2019.

In 2017 we opened our centre at 83 Pall Mall, the face of the University of Bath in London. This new centre is ideally placed for teaching and learning in public policy and other disciplines that are of critical interest to policymakers and public servants in Westminster and Whitehall. 

The University of Bath Institute for Policy Research (IPR)

The University of Bath Institute for Policy Research (IPR) is a leading institute of public policy research in the UK. We undertake and enable policy-relevant research to make an impact, especially through building links with the worlds of policy and practice as well as by increasing public understanding of policy research through our Public Lecture and Publications series’. We deliver activities for policymakers, researchers and practitioners to enable two-way learning and original contributions to both research and practice, delivered through our Policy Fellowship Programme, Universities in Westminster Masterclass series, Professional Doctorate, Masters in Public Policy and Visiting Fellows and Visiting Policy Fellows Schemes.
