Your Career


There are many career opportunities in the UK that are open to all students including international students. Bath is highly targeted by graduate recruiters so you will see lots of employers on campus. As part of your MSc programme, you will have many career activities – both timetabled and optional – so take advantage of these.

It is important to start thinking about your job search as soon as possible as some graduate opportunities have deadlines soon after you start the MSc.
