Careers information for prospective students
Find out more about the careers support at Bath and sources of information to help you choose a course.
Why choose Bath
There is a strong demand for Bath graduates from employers, including multinationals and prestigious organisations of all sizes.
The vocational bias of many of the courses, the industrial links, the integrated periods of industrial training and the calibre of the students all contribute towards this.
What Bath graduates do
Each year we survey our graduates to find out what they do in their first year after leaving the University. You can see this information online for first degree graduates and for doctoral graduates, or pick up a leaflet at an open day.

Choosing and applying for a course
The University's courses pages provide full details of courses, applications and student life at Bath. You can contact admissions staff with enquiries. Their contact details can be found on the University's contact page. Admissions staff can also refer you to staff in academic departments as needed, for example with queries related to course content.
For one-to-one advice about choosing and applying for a course:
