Bath Time is the University of Bath’s student magazine, where we write and rant about local news, students issues and all things pop-culture!
During Freshers’ Week, we provide daily coverage of events with a sprinkle of scandal, bad puns and crass summaries in the form of ‘Minty Fresh’. As for the remainder of the year, the team works together to publish some top-quality journalism, focusing on investigative projects at a local and national level. We are also always on the look out for contributors to cover the best places to cure a hangover, which Fresh flapjack our readers should buy and all things Bath city related.
Copies of Bath Time are available across campus and new issues will be published every semester!
Volume 23 Issue 1 (2021) will be out December 6, 2021, Monday!
Meet the people behind the university’s student-led chaotic journalistic endeavours.
Editor-in-Chief : Asees Kaur
Asees uses the Mamma Mia soundtracks as background music for everything she does. She is addicted to tiktok, coffee and chocolate but hey, at least she’s self aware about it! She also works at one of Bath’s indie cafes and it is hard to make her stop talking about it!
Editor-in-Chief : Élie Breton Des Loÿs
Elie hasn’t really changed since second year and his time as Lifestyle Editor. He’s still a green tea addict, passionate about French man and cinema lover who can’t stop writing articles about obscure European films no one watches, even if he says “no, I swear it’s like so good”. How many gallons of tea will he need to get through this year as Editor in Chief? Only time will tell…
News & Comment Editor : Davina Kourdi
Other than keeping up to date with the news, you’ll also find her taking film photos, being passionate about climate change and going for long walks.
Lifestyle Editor : Emily Godon
If you can’t find Emily, formerly Bath Time’s Features Editor, head to the Edge Café. If she’s not sipping *decaf* coffee while studying extra modules than she should be, she’s probably trying to fill her time with sport… without actually doing a sport. If you didn’t know she’s from Kent, is half-French and had a full fringe, I’m sure she’ll tell you in-between all the gossip. And whatever you do, don’t mention the Great British Bake Off.
Features Editor : Sonny Loughran
Having realised you still don’t have to do the readings he fills his time being upset about the excesses of capitalism, and Game of Thrones season eight. Other than this, Sonny is obsessed with unusual subcultures. So as features editor, he’ll likely try to squeeze in stories about the UK’s strangest groups – be it real-world witches or Bath’s swinger community.
Sport Editor : Chelsea Pledge
When she’s not covering sports news, you can find Chelsea training full time in Judo at the Sport Training Village. And if she’s not on the tatami mat she’s probably busy making viral TikToks around Bath!
Photography Editor : Hannah Gormley
Hannah has her own business as a freelance photographer. She also dances and runs a lot! Cheese is her comfort food. She loves pretty cities and hidden gems so Bath makes her very happy.
Publicity & Distribution Officer : Joe Wilkins
Joe lives exclusively off spaghetti hoops, turkey dinosaurs, and smiley faces. That tells you all you need to know about him.
