Support with your next steps: Stay Connected

We’re offering a dedicated programme of support for the Class of 2021 to help with your next steps after completing your studies.

Stay Connected

What's next?

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

Stay Connected is a tailored programme of support 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.

You can access support through MyFuture, Bath Connection and Student Services, as well as through our programme of events.

The programme will run throughout the autumn with tailored sessions for both undergraduate and postgraduate leavers.

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 further study, if that’s your next step.

You'll also have the opportunity to opt in to receive useful resources and graduate vacancies by email.

Register for the Graduate Mailing list to receive regular emails with useful resources and job roles to support your job search.

We also recommend checking that the details we have on file for you are correct to ensure that you don't miss out on news and updates from us once you have left the University.

Supporting your move to further 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.

Our blog 'From undergraduate to postgraduate - small steps, not a giant leap' also sets out what to expect.

Postgraduate Progression Award

If you graduated in December 2020 or July 2021 with a full honours undergraduate or postgraduate degree from the University of Bath (e.g. BSc, BA, MEng, MSc, MA, MPhil), you may qualify for 20% off postgraduate tuition fees with us thanks to the Postgraduate Progression Award.

Staying in touch with Bath

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

Maintain your wellbeing

You can continue to use Student Services' Be Well - Talk Now while your email address stays active. The Office for Students also provides a list of useful 'Look after yourself' wellbeing links.

Get careers support

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.

Connect with your fellow alumni

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