Bath Spa University relaunch Bath Spa Works: Internships

Updated: Nov 8, 2021

The team at Bath Spa were delighted with the success of their internships schemes over the last couple of years and are excited to announce the relaunch of Bath Spa Works: Internships for 2021/22.

Since the conception of Bath Spa Works: Internships we never tire of hearing the great feedback from both employers and students who benefitted massively from the offering. These opportunities provide invaluable experiences to our students allowing them to enhance their key employability skills, which will set them apart in the ever competitive Graduate labour market.

We understand that our employers have such varying recruitment needs and we want to be as flexible as possible to suit you.

If you would like to get involved with Bath Spa Works: Internships, please complete this Employer Proposal form with an outline of your internship details. This form will be submitted to the Placements Team to review and approve if deemed appropriate so please be as clear as possible as this will help us shortlist.

If approved, you will then be asked to upload the role to our online jobs platform, MyCareer. We will be in touch with next steps and further detail if and when your role has been accepted.

This year we will be offering part - funded internships where you will have an opportunity to select one of our fantastic students for either:

  • 70-120 hours - funding contribution of £500


  • 140 + hours - funding contribution of £1000

You will be required to make up the remaining amount in order to pay the student the national minimum wage. The student will need to be added to your payroll and paid directly.

When putting your proposal together, please remember that students should not work more than 15 hours per week during term time. If you would like a full time internship, you may want to consider running your internship during academic breaks (such as Summer). Please get in touch if you have any questions on this.

In the meantime, please take the time to read over the Bath Spa Works Internships: Terms & Conditions and Employer Guide. For any internships that involve remote working, we also encourage you to take the time to read over this "Guide to working from home for students" from ACAS.
