Enhancing international recruitment

How alumni can help inspire students to study at Bath

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Bath Connection Alumni Ambassador programme, designed to support international student recruitment and conversion.

The programme will give overseas offer-holders the opportunity to connect with graduates from around the globe to talk about their experience of living and learning at the University of Bath.

Currently this programme is targeted towards international Postgraduate Taught offer-holders only and those who are eligible will be contacted directly.

Prospective students can search for alumni by country, course studied or subsequent career path, or using key words.

All of our Alumni Ambassadors are volunteers and are keen to share the value of their experience at Bath and inspire the next generation of students. Most will have graduated within the past five years.

A number of successful pilot programmes has demonstrated that around 10% of offer-holders have engaged with this programme and find it beneficial to speak with previous Bath students. 

How the Ambassador programme works

Landing page

Applicants will be given instructions on how to access the platform in their offer email. Access is via Applicant Tracker, so is safe and secure.

Once logged in, offer-holders will see our worldwide community of Ambassadors on the interactive map. Users have the ability to zoom, drag and also click on a location to see who is there.

Please note that prospective students do not have access to the full Bath Connection platform and will only be able to search for and connect with graduates who have activated their Ambassador profile.

Get in touch

To contact an Ambassador, users can click ‘Send Alumni Ambassador request’. A dialog box will then prompt the user to introduce themselves. This is also where they can ask any questions they may have about studying at Bath and living in the UK. The message will be sent through the Bath Connection platform.

Ambassadors have agreed to Terms & Conditions which include not discussing issues such as course requirements and visas. They will advise any offer-holders asking these sorts of questions to contact the University directly.
