Careers – Bath Spa University

We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:

  • Exploring your options
  • Gaining valuable experience
  • Progressing your ideas and career plans

Meet the team and find out more about what we do to support you.

At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.

We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.

For more information about what is available to you and how this relates to your career journey, choose a pathway below to find out more.

These resources are here to help you explore and understand more about yourself. Exploring your strengths and interests will help you to recognise how these might develop into a potential career.

Learn more about different career paths and explore new industries which might be of interest to you through industry-led events during Workfest and our Employer Connections series. Get answers to common careers questions on our FAQ page.

Understand how to build your CV or use our Mentoring Programme to explore an industry or role you may be considering for the future.



Gaining work experience, whether part-time or for an extended period, will help you to gain and develop new skills as well as identifying what you like and don’t like when looking for a job.
