Lily Smith – Bath Spa University

 Student profile 

Course: BA (Hons) Business and Management (Festivals and Events)

I am currently a Business and Management undergraduate on the Festivals and Events pathway. I am due to take my placement year next summer so I am currently actively applying for internship roles in the travel, hospitality, events, PR and Communication sectors.

At present, I work as a Student Ambassador for Bath Spa; this is a role that I really enjoy as I love talking to prospective students and being a friendly face for them to approach at Open Days. I also work at Snapdragons; a nursery for children from 0-12 years old in Weston. I have been working for them since my first year at university.

Outside of studying and working I enjoy a range of activities and have a very active social life as a result. I am currently a member of Bath Spa’s DJing society, Sublime. I also go to an Ariel Circus class at Bristol’s Circus University; Circomedia.

I’m also a huge fan of art and love exploring museums and exhibitions if given the opportunity. I was lucky enough to visit the Picasso and Warhol museum in Spain last summer which really inspired me creatively. These experiences inspire my studies, since Bath Spa is such a creative University.

Why did you choose the course you studied at Bath Spa?

I chose to study Business and Management with Festivals and Events at Bath Spa as it has given me the business head I need to make big decisions whilst also allowing me to study a sector of the industry I am really interested in.

"The best thing about the course is..."

The lectures! The vast experience in industry my lectures have has opened so many doors for me. As a result I have been lucky enough to network with some of their connections and partaken in work experience in a varitety of roles such as 'Artist Liaison' and 'Stage Manager' at some big festivals over my summer break. 

"I recommend Bath Spa because..."

I recommend Bath Spa because of the work experience opportunities that are offered, the support network of the Careers and Writing and Learning Center team and the highly experienced Bath Business School Team.
