What we offer

This Fair is aimed at employers, big and small, who have vacancies to offer new graduates for 2017 starts.

The fair is part of the AGCAS National Programme of Summer Fairs. As well as extensive advertising on the Bath campus and website, it will be advertised nationally through the Prospects website and detailed information on each fair will be included in the Prospects publication Student Career Guide.

We have attracted up to 500 students at our previous fairs, with the majority being Bath graduates from a wide range of degree disciplines. This year we have kept the event at an earlier date and are hoping to increase the attendance of our students who are still on campus just as their exams finish. In addition, we can offer space to employers who open their recruitment for 2018 graduates during the summer of 2017, so that they can encourage our penultimate students (those not out on placement/abroad) to apply early.

The Fair will be held on campus and has a capacity of 34 stands.


Please note all prices are exclusive of VAT.

The cost of attendance is £400, which includes:

  • Stand space 3m wide x 2m deep, with 1 trestle table and 2 chairs. Tablecloths are not included.
  • Buffet lunch and refreshments for your representatives (2 included in price).
  • Portering and help from student helpers if needed.
  • Limited parking.
  • Standard text in our fair programme (approx 200 words).

Optional extras are:

  • Pre-booked power supply, if required, at an extra charge of £25 (subject to limited availability).
  • Your company logo printed mono alongside your text entry in the printed programme - £25.
  • Additional mono advertising in the programme - £200 for full A4 page, and £125 for half A4 page.
  • Sponsorship of the Fair programme and web page – please ask.


If you are a small to medium employer (less than 250 employees) and have not attended a fair at the University of Bath before, we will be pleased to offer a discounted rate of £200, subject to available space. Please contact us with your company details and the number/type of graduates you are looking for.
