As a registered member of the Alumni Network, you can opt to receive special invitations to events such as receptions, exhibition openings, guest lectures and networking opportunities. These may be held on campus, across the UK and around the world. Past international events have been held in Athens, Berlin, Kuala Lumpur, Madrid and Chongqing. Locations for alumni events in the UK have included MediaCity in Manchester, the National Liberal Club, Santander headquarters in Regent's Place, and the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London.
A number of our alumni return to the University to talk to current students about their professional experiences since graduating as part of our Meet the Graduate series. They offer invaluable advice on forging a career in a particular industry. Some even become mentors for current students or arrange work experience opportunities at their place of work.
There are lots of opportunities to get involved. These include talking to students about your career and achievements, becoming a mentor to support students, arranging work experience or graduate internships at your place of work, and sharing your story to inspire students and fellow alumni. If you are interested in taking part, please contact the Alumni Office.
