Information enquiries

If you are looking for information to help with your career planning, check our careers resources catalogue. If you would like help to find what you need, speak to a member of our Information Team.  Either ask at the enquiry desk in the Careers Service or email careers@bath.ac.uk - you don't need to make an appointment for this.

Quick queries

Quick query appointments are available to students of any year and University of Bath graduates who are able to attend in person. These are one-to-one appointments with one of our careers advisers and are available on most days.

These sessions are ideal if you are wondering where to start, you have a specific query, or you want feedback on your CV. You get up to 15 minutes with a Careers Adviser, in the quick query area in the Information Room. All you need to do is sign up on the day through MyFuture (login required).

Please Note:
Quick queries are usually run at the following times.
Sign-up opens before the quick query session starts, and at peak times the sessions fill up very quickly.
If you are not present when your name is called, you will lose your place!

Guidance appointments

Guidance appointments are available to students of any year and University of Bath graduates. (Some University staff are also eligible for this service.) This is a one-to-one appointment with one of our careers advisers and will help you define what you want from your career, and give guidance on planning your next steps. The appointment can last up to 45 minutes, is confidential and takes place in a private office. 

If you are a student on placement or living elsewhere during vacations, or if you are a Bath graduate now living elsewhere, we offer guidance appointments by telephone and Skype. Please ask for this service when you call.

To make an appointment please come in and ask at the enquiry desk, or ring us on (01225) 386009 during opening hours.  We aim to accommodate you as soon as possible, and even at our peak times within 15 working days.

Before attending your appointment please read the relevant guide and do your preparation:

Practice interviews with careers advisers

We understand that employers interview students for placements, internships and graduate roles in a number of different ways. To give you the best possible preparation, we are able to offer you a practice interview as follows:

  • Face-to-face
  • Telephone
  • Skype.

Please let us know at the time of booking how you would like to undertake your practice interview.

To book, you must have made an application and have been invited to an interview.

You will get a general interview which lasts 30-45 minutes and your adviser will tailor the interview to the occupation and sector of your choice. Please note we are unable to ask technical questions.

To book, please come and ask at the enquiry desk or ring us on (01225) 386009 during our opening hours.

Please note that we may not be able to offer practice interviews (including presentation practice) during peak times including October and November; but you can use information resources about interviews including InterviewStream described below.

Practice interviews with InterviewStream video software

We offer you the opportunity to practice interview skills using video interview software. InterviewStream offers you a choice of building your own interview or you can take one of our pre-prepared ones. Find out more about InterviewStream (campus access only).

Presentation practice

Increasingly, employers ask students to deliver a presentation as part of the interview process. You can book a one-to-one appointment to run through your presentation with a careers adviser. We can give you feedback on your presentation structure and delivery. The appointment lasts 30-45 minutes. Please make sure you specify you would like presentation practice at the time of booking.

To book, please come and ask at the enquiry desk or ring us on (01225) 386009 during our opening hours.

Please note we are unable to provide access to AV equipment.
