What employers say


If I was to pick out some of the factors that distinguish a Bath student from others, I would say that they tend to have a very high level of commercial awareness. They’re also very resilient and able to take on challenges as they come. They’re confident about taking their own stance on things.


PwC has chosen to work with Bath for over four years because of the excellent calibre of students. We continue to recruit talented students year after year.


P&G actively targets Bath for recruitment. If you look around P&G you can see a surprising number of Bath graduates. My advice to students would be to think beyond your academic studies, think about your personal skills development, in particular leadership, something we really look for in potential candidates.

Bath for us is a great university… the student of the future needs to bring a range of skills. We need people to be flexible, innovative…they need to be perceptive, driven and above all they need to be creative.
