About the Program

Advanced Studies in England (ASE) is a program designed for international students. While British in course content, teaching approach, and faculty, ASE is a program for American students and follows the American educational system. Nelson House, ASE’s study center, is a beautifully restored Georgian townhouse that provides classrooms, a library, desktop computers, laptop ports and WiFi. There is also a student common room and a courtyard garden. ASE students are associate members of the Bath Spa University Student Union, with over 70 different clubs and societies.


Advanced Studies in England is located in Bath, Somerset in western England. Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987, Bath is famous for its Georgian architecture, Roman Baths and ruins, 15th century Abbey, and being home to the Jane Austen Center and the Museum of Fashion. A city with a large student population, students will find that Bath’s cafes, pubs, restaurants and events more often than not cater to students.
