Stay Connected

What's next?

Unsure about your next steps after completing your studies? Worried about job-hunting? Thinking about Postgraduate study?

Stay Connected is a tailored programme of support during the week of 7-10 June 2021 to help the Class of 2021 transition from Bath into graduate employment or further study and navigate the unique challenges resulting from the Coronavirus pandemic. The programme will also run for completing PGT students in the autumn.

Stay Connected aims to:

  • provide you with an update on the current graduate job market
  • explore what employability means in a post-Covid world of work
  • increase your confidence in writing effective job applications and approaching different selection processes
  • help you develop a personal career action plan and strategies to build resilience
  • prepare you for Postgraduate study, if that’s your next step.

The programme is open to all completing students and will offer a combination of engaging online and on-demand sessions during the week. You'll also have the opportunity to opt in to receive useful resources and graduate vacancies by email.

Simply register here to opt in to our weekly emails and to view the Stay Connected programme of events.

Supporting your move to Postgraduate study

If you plan to continue your studies at Postgraduate level, whether at Bath or elsewhere, self-access modules are available to guide you through the differences between Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses and help you develop the key academic skills required at this level.

Postgraduate Progression Award

As graduates of the University of Bath, you are very important to us, so we've created an award to help support your continued study with us and to develop your career.

The Postgraduate Progression Award is a token of our appreciation for your choice to stay part of our community.

If you graduated from Bath in December 2020 or are finishing your studies in the 2020/21 academic year and are considering further study with us in the 2021/22 academic year, you may be eligible for 20% off your postgraduate tuition fees.

Staying in touch with Bath

Remember, your connection with the University of Bath doesn’t end when you complete your studies.

You can continue to use Student Services' Be Well - Talk Now and Wellbeing Service until the end of August. The Office for Students also provides a list of useful 'Look after yourself' wellbeing links.

Completing students have life-time access to the Careers Service. This includes appointments with Careers Advisers and access to careers information, resources and graduate vacancy listings in MyFuture.

You’ll also join a global network of over 125,000 alumni. Through Bath Connection, the University’s e-networking programme, you can seek advice, guidance and support from Bath alumni working in a range of industries around the world.
