This paper discusses a practical, multidisciplinary approach to help students developing their employability skills, including the practical implementation and initial outcomes of an MSc programme at the University of Bath (UoB). Informed by relevant professional bodies and students’ perceived needs, key transferable skills are identified and embedded with technical ones. Students work on a series of tailored activities in which they integrate and apply principles and methodologies from multiple areas (linguistics, information, etc.) different to their technical expertise, as in the work environment. This is facilitated by a multidisciplinary team comprising academics and staff at six centres at the UoB.
