Support our students

We strive to ensure our students acquire a diverse range of experiences and skills during their time at Bath Spa University.

How you can get involved

Industry mentors scheme

Support the next generation of professionals through our mentoring scheme, which also provides personal and professional development opportunities to your employees.

Live briefs

Enlist student help via a project or piece of research which they could in turn use to inform their final-year projects or dissertations.

Bath Sparks

Share your experience of being a freelancer or setting up your own business whilst raising your profile and expanding your network within academia and the University’s business networks with our entrepreneurship support programme, Bath Sparks.

Our aim is to provide our graduates with the confidence and industry insight to allow them to flourish in the local, national and global workplace with the ability not only to work in, and lead, teams but also to be entrepreneurial.

By developing key relationships within our business community we are able to offer our students the opportunity to receive first-hand experience and guidance from industry professionals. We aim to provide our students with a wealth of industry interaction ensuring that they are connected and well equipped to enter the world of work. We facilitate opportunities such as: working on live industry briefs; learning from the experiences of others within their chosen career field; and pitching business ventures to an expert panel of enterprising judges.

We have a variety of ways in which you can engage with our students, not only allowing you to have a direct impact on the emerging talent of Bath Spa University graduates but also presenting you, or your team, with an opportunity for professional development and student ideas that could benefit your business.
