Help support our students

Supporting our students to develop
Supporting our students to develop

There are many ways to get involved with the University following graduation. Engaging with our students can be fun and rewarding and it's a great way to support the current generation of students.

We are always looking for alumni to work in partnership with us to help support our current students. We value the expert advice and inspirational messages you can give to our students who can learn so much from your experiences. Below we've identified some areas you may wish to consider however please feel free to contact us should you have further ideas you'd like to explore.

  • Could you inspire others?
  • Wish to pass on your career knowledge and experience to a student who is interested in working in a career sector in which you have experience?
  • Can you offer a few hours to connect with a current student and act as a career mentor helping them to identify their skills and prepare to transition from education to employment?

We are always interested to hear from alumni keen to support the development of our students and in return you too can learn and develop mentoring skills which may help to progress your own continuing professional development.

To learn more please visit our Mentoring Information webpage.

Can you or your organisation offer a short term internship or project for a current student? Many of our students want to gain real world work experience in a variety of employment sectors and these highly motivated students can benefit your organisation and make great impact within your business.

To learn more please visit our Work Experience Information webpages.

Could you inspire our students through a careers talk, networking event or help to deliver a workshop on employability skills such as CVs and interview tips?

We greatly value the input of our alumni community in helping to educate and inspire our current students through our extensive range of events.
