Building skills: Amalia and Mason’s stories 

Your donations are being used to support a wide range of opportunities – including helping scholars to make the most of extracurricular training here at our Claverton Down campus.  

Last year, the Fund provided grants of £390 each to two of our scholars, Health & Exercise Science student Amalia Gimbuta and Sport & Exercise Science student Mason Excell. This contributed towards tuition fees for vocational courses at the Team Bath Sports Training Village in sports massage and strength and conditioning, respectively. 

Courses such as these can open doors for students, giving them the chance to broaden their knowledge base, explore subjects that may not be covered by lectures and develop skills that will prove attractive to employers.  

Donate now to help more scholars like Amalia and Mason, and share this page with friends to help us reach as many people as possible.

How do your gifts help? Read Victor’s story  

Your generosity is helping our students to broaden their experiences and apply knowledge from their courses in a real-world context. 

Thanks to a £920 grant from the GSP Opportunities Fund, Civil Engineering student Victor was able to visit Rome, explore its historic landmarks and develop his understanding of classical architecture – and its impact on the world around him.
