Graduate Volunteers Inspire Students

More than 50 graduates have returned to Lincoln over the past few months to share their experiences with students and provide inspirational careers advice as part of our ‘Meet the Graduates’ event series.

In partnership with the different academic schools across the University, the alumni team host these events for current students to give them an insight into life after University and to benefit from the knowledge of our graduates.

There has been an overwhelming response from alumni willing to talk about their career journey and offer advice to students on a wide variety of topics including the degree, how to get into industry, networking and gaining work experience. 

Simon Mowbray, who graduated with a degree in Sports Development and Coaching advised: “Get as much advice on the degree from the lecturers and get as much experience as you can in the community, whether that’s coaching experience, volunteering or paid work.”

The reaction from students has been extremely positive. A final year Media student tweeted “#MtGLincoln was a fantastic event, great to hear so many stories and advice about the best ways to work in media.”

There are two events still to come for the Business School in April and Nursing in June. If you would like to get involved in our future events, we’d love to hear from you. Email us: alumni@lincoln.ac.uk
