What we offer:

Careers support

The Careers Service is available to you for up to three years after you graduate, so that you can continue to access personalised one-to-one appointments, career-enhancing events and helpful resources. Within the first 15 months, there’s also extra support available as part of Careers’ Grad Support Unit. This is all accessible by registering for a graduate account on MyCareer.

Postgraduate Scholarship

Bath Spa University graduates progressing to one of our taught Master's courses could be eligible to receive up to £2,000 towards the cost of tuition fees. The discount is available to UK/EU, international and part-time students. Please note that the fee reduction is not available for teacher education qualifications. More information is available on our Postgraduate Scholarship page.

Access to Bath School of Art, Film and Media and Bath School of Design workshops

Art and Design alumni are welcome to come back to Sion Hill and Locksbrook campus to use the Schools of Art, Film and Media and Design workshops. You can find all opening times and costs through the Alumni Workshop Request form.

Library access

Alumni are entitled to free access to the Library as an external borrower for the first year after graduation. Subsequent annual alumni membership is available for £10 per annum. With membership you can borrow up to five items at a time and use the study and enquiry services. 

To apply please complete the External Borrower Application Form, and choose 'Alumni' as the type of Library membership. 

Please be aware that due to licence restrictions this does not include access to all the electronic resources provided by the library but graduates will be able to use a selection of these, including, for example, JSTOR and Drama Online for 6 months after graduation.

If you would like to use the library for reference purposes only, you are welcome to register as a reference user free of charge.

For more information please contact the Library at

Degree transcripts and certificates

The Alumni Records office can help you with University references, validation of your award and replacement certificates and transcripts (fees apply for replacement documents).

Please get in touch at

Campus visits and reunions

Alumni are welcome to come back to visit the University at any time. Our campuses at Newton Park, Locksbrook Campus, Sion Hill and Corsham Court are open throughout the year, and you are free to visit and have a look around on your own. If you are planning a casual visit to one of our campuses rather than a reunion, please take into account the following:

  • Catering is available in our four campuses all year around, however timetables vary during the summer.
  • You will need to pay for parking at Newton Park. Please note that parking space at Corsham Court, Locksbrook and Sion Hill is very restricted. If you would like more information please email for information about Locksbrook and Sion Hill, or call Corsham Court on 01225 876 390.
  • If you would like to hire spaces within the University for other types of events (weddings, functions or meetings), please contact Bath Spa Venues.

Alternatively, if you would like to arrange a more comprehensive visit or reunion event, the External Affairs Unit is more than happy to help you. To speak to a member of the team about arranging a reunion, or if you have any other questions, please email

Tickets at Bath Spa Live

Enjoy wonderful events for free. All Bath Spa alumni are eligible for free tickets to attend Bath Spa Live events for the academic year 2022/23 (some events may not be included). From poetry readings to performances, from exhibitions to recitals there is something for everyone. Book your tickets via the Bath Spa Live website.

Alumni to Alumni Benefits

If you own a company or are a freelancer, and you are willing to offer fellow alums a discounted rate on your products or services, we can promote this to the wider alumni community through social media, or in our e-news.

Unfortunately, we currently don’t accept offers from non-alumni organisations. However, alums who are working for a company that is willing to offer discounts to Bath Spa alumni will be considered.

This is a great opportunity to promote your company and expand your networks. If you are interested, let us know at Have a look at the Alumni-Discount-Offer-Policy for further information.

Student Union membership

Stay involved with the Student Union through associate membership. For £25 per annum, the membership allows you to join the SU clubs and societies, use the facilities and get tickets to events where there are no entry restrictions.

Email for life

You can continue to use your Bath Spa email for life! Access your email via the Outlook app or on the web. 

You'll need to log in at least once every six months for your account to remain active, and your email address may change to reflect your Alumni status (but you'll continue to receive any emails sent to your previous address).

Email for life does not include OneDrive cloud storage.
