FYFlogo

Think that there’s no point in considering the future until it hits you in the face? Think again. Graduate jobs and schemes are already being advertised for 2018, with closing dates as early as December and January, so it’s important to snatch up opportunities before they’re gone.

The start of your last year of study here at Bath Spa is absolutely key, which is why we’re introducing Final Year Fortnight – a concentrated two weeks of support, whether you’re weighing up what you want to do after university or just need a bit of help to get your applications started.

We’re running an extended programme of drop-ins and workshops alongside our flagship Careers & Opportunities Fair 2017. Whatever your plans, we’re here to help. Remember: it’s not too early in the year to think about your future!

Final-Year Drop-Ins: an update!

relaunch-advertisement

We all know that third-years are frequently worried about their workload and preparing frantically for dissertations –  it’s often easy to lose sight of what all the hard work is for.

The Bath Spa Careers team are here to help ease those added stresses; whether it’s helping to choose your next step after graduation, additional support with postgraduate applications or assisting with your graduate job search.

We understand how important the next step is after finishing university, which is why final-year students have their own timeslot to discuss these issues –every Tuesday between 11am-1pm, downstairs in Steward’s Lodge (the cottage opposite the library bus stop).

What are Final Year Drop-Ins for?

  • Help with searching for graduate jobs and schemes
  • Support in applying to postgraduate study/teacher training
  • An informal space to discuss you options after graduation
  • Guidance to postgrad study abroad and international opportunities
  • Quick queries regarding the Bath Spa Award in your final year

Careers Space – Steward’s Lodge. Every Tuesday – 11am-1pm 

Simply pop by and say hello, no booking required.

Hope to you see you soon!
