Find a placement or internship – Bath Spa University

Students: find placements and internships

Establish a relationship with a future employer, and you could launch your career even before you've finished your degree.

Why do a placement? More than a third of all entry level vacancies in 2015 were filled by graduates who had already worked for an organisation through paid internships, industrial placements or vacation work. This means it’s more important than ever to secure a placement opportunity while you're studying. What’s more, a placement can seriously enhance your CV and improve your career prospects.

Work experience can range from anywhere between a few days to a few months and comes in many shapes and forms - from short placements that could be part of your course, to a summer internship or sandwich year. Whatever your work experience goals, we can help.

Through Bath Spa Works, the University is developing a number of key initiatives designed to develop your employability skills and experience. This includes projects that are socially, environmentally and sustainably led, opportunities and placements with local organisations and immersive virtual work environments and experiences. 

You can browse a huge range of jobs and opportunities on MyCareer, with new adverts being added frequently.
