Engineering & Design postgraduate taught employability support

Find out how our Faculty’s PGT employability team can support you through your MSc from pre-arrival to graduation.

Employability in higher education is about your ability to get employed and learn the behaviours and qualities to be a valued employee. It involves:

  • developing your technical, transferrable and essential skills and competencies
  • building self-awareness and industry knowledge
  • learning how to navigate the recruitment process

Improving your employability extends beyond getting a graduate job. It also prepares you to take on different workplaces, roles, and challenges throughout your career.

Our support and services

We offer several services to support you in developing your employability. These include helping you:

  • build confidence in writing and submitting CVs, cover letters, and job applications
  • understand how to prepare for psychometric assessments, interviews, assessment centres and on-demand video interviews
  • practice interview skills through tailored mock interviews with feedback
  • looking for job roles and positions
  • helping you find a placement on our integrated courses

As well as this we also provide:

  • one-to-one appointments
  • workshops and sessions
  • online resources
  • industry networking opportunities
  • alumni events to talk to graduates and hear about their recruitment experiences

Student and alumni LinkedIn communities

We have Students and Alumni LinkedIn groups for all our courses. Once you start your MSc, we'll invite you to join and connect with our alumni community. This is a great opportunity to build your professional network as well as stay up to date with employability at Bath after you graduate.

We also have a LinkedIn group if you're interested in studying one of our courses, or if you're an applicant or an offer holder. Join to learn more about our courses, the employability support we provide, and to connect with the Postgraduate Employability Team.
