Telephone appeal

A telephone call from a student is a great way to stay connected and to become more involved with the University in ways that most interest you.

Stay connected and get more involved with the University through our telephone appeal
Talk to a student fundraiser

To help extend the connection we have with our alumni community we hire enthusiastic and bright student fundraisers to take part in the University's fundraising telephone appeals.

Each appeal provides you with the opportunity to speak with a current student about becoming more involved with the University, in whatever way might suit you. Our student fundraisers will talk to you about opportunities such as volunteering, providing careers support, becoming a student mentor or making a philanthropic gift to support our students and your University.

It also offers our students opportunity to speak to you about your time at the University as a student and what you have gone on to achieve since graduation.

My call from a student was very friendly. They chatted about their experiences and how things have changed, which was very interesting.

We conduct our telephone appeals with the highest level of integrity regarding your personal choice to receive a fundraising call from our team. We adhere to the ethical and professional guidelines set out for us by our governing body, CASE Europe, which can be found here on their website. If you have concerns regarding our fundraising best practices at any time, please contact our Head of Fundraising, Katherine de Retuerto via email at or telephone on 023 8059 6895.
