As an international student you have access to all the same support that UK students have and you can find all the information in our Careers Service Information for New and Returning Students. This gives you further information about how to access our support and resources, including events and appointments with an adviser. All of our job opportunities, events, appointments and resources can be accessed through our careers portal MyFuture, so if you haven't checked this out yet, make sure to explore MyFuture now. We also have specific events and resources tailored to international students so scroll down to find out more.


We have an excellent resource for you which covers job advice and tips for finding a job in the UK and overseas, webinar recordings and important links and advice regarding visa and immigration. Make sure to explore the Get Started guide now and learn more.


We have several events planned for this Autumn and there will be many more events for you to explore on MyFuture.

  • In collaboration with other UK universities we offer many events for students wishing to return to their home country; such as the Career Cube China events this October. You will also find further events on MyFuture with the title Global Careers Insights Series. Check regularly for events on MyFuture.
  • Societies and Alumni Relations may also deliver events tailored to international students, make sure to regularly check MyFuture for these events.
  • This Autumn, Lockin China is delivering a range of events, job fairs and workshops in October and November, in their Event for Global Young Talent.

Visa & immigration

New visas, such as the Skilled Worker visa and the Graduate Route visa have made it easier to find work in the UK after graduation. But what do you know about these visas and where can you find out more? Have a look at our Get Started International Students guide for advice and resources. Be aware, the Careers Service is unable to answer specific visa & immigration queries, however check out the Working After Studies section and Graduate Route visa section on the Student Immigration Service website. You can also contact the Student Immigration Service with queries and they will be happy to help.

Below is a recording of a webinar that Student Immigration Service delivered to our students and graduates regarding the Graduate Route visa in April 2021. They will deliver an updated webinar on 2nd November at 13:15, make sure book a place now on MyFuture.

Any further Queries?

If you have any queries at all, you may find the answer to some of them on MyFuture and by exploring our excellent Get Started guides. However, you are always free to email us on careers@bath.ac.uk, or you can book an appointment with an Applications or a Careers Adviser via MyFuture.

We wish you a wonderful Autumn term and look forward to working with you this year.

All the best, the Careers Service :)
