Services and advice for alumni


Achieving your degree and graduating from university is a cause for celebration, you’ve secured a valuable qualification and gained a huge amount of experience, but we know that leaving education for the world of work can also be a bit mind-boggling. After all, there’s so much to think about. 

Following the University's Covid-19 guidance, our team are working from home. However, we are online to help you navigate these extraordinary times.

As an alumnus, you can book an online careers appointment and attend our virtual job-hunting workshops, careers fairs and Spotlight On events.
