Bath Employment Spring School for Autism

The Bath Employment Spring School for Autism (BESSA) was scheduled to be held in April 2020 but due to Covid-19 we have rearranged this as on online event.

The event is a free day for autistic students or graduates (with or without a diagnosis). It aims to help with the transition from university to a range of opportunities like internships, placements and graduate employment.

The event is organised by the Centre for Applied Autism Research (CAAR) at the University of Bath, and JP Morgan (JPM).

If you're an autistic student or graduate (with or without a diagnosis), you can attend this event where you'll get support and guidance for the transition from university to work.

For an in-depth look at the autism-related workshops and activities we run at Bath, read our case study.
