Internships

Bath Spa Works Internships are paid opportunities with local businesses, taking place throughout the year (including the summer). They vary in length - from remote projects lasting a few days, through to full time internships of up to ten weeks.

If you’re looking to do something that adds value to your degree, helps you develop key skills, provides a meaningful impact on the company you’re working for and earns you some money, then visit MyCareer to see what exciting opportunities are available.

Placements

Bath Spa Works Placements are opportunities ideal for students looking for experience needed as part of their course. Requirements vary depending on which subject you are doing, but placements could include the following:

  • Short placement modules (including the Work Placement Open Module available to all second year students) - opportunities of up to four weeks that can be completed flexibly during term time.
  • Professional Placement Year - where you can undertake placements of between 9-13 months between your second and third year of study.

Projects

Bath Spa Works Projects offer students from any discipline the opportunity to work collaboratively on real life social, environmental or sustainable projects that take place throughout the year.

As well as helping local and regional non-for-profit and purpose-led organisations, these projects will help you develop your employability skills, broaden your work experience, and build your contacts and network.

Immersive environments

Bath Spa Works will provide a route for students to interact with immersive physical and virtual work environments and scenarios. Engaging with our simulated and virtual environments will allow you to improve your confidence and understanding of a multitude of work environments and roles, helping you to see what kinds of future opportunities may be available to you. You'll also be able to experience what it might be like to work within certain sectors or types of organisation.

We'll update you via our Careers Newsletter and social media channels when these become available.
