Your relationship with the University of Nottingham doesn't end when you graduate. We have many ways for our alumni to get involved and keep in touch, and help to inspire students currently studying with us.
As a graduate of the University of Nottingham, you can continue to use the Careers and Employability Service to help you build your career. They provide guidance and advice, run events, and have a job vacancy service.
Find out about some of the careers our graduates have gone on to on our alumni profiles page.
Give your time
Can you give your time to help inspire, share your knowledge and stories with our students and staff or mentor our budding entrepreneurs? We have a range of opportunities whether you have 30 minutes or want a more long term commitment, whether you are at home or at work, or if you can come to Nottingham or live across the world. There is something to suit everyone and your support will make a huge difference. Find out more about the opportunities available.
The Careers and Employability Service's eMentoring scheme enables alumni, who have a registered a career profile, to extend their volunteering activities and mentor a current student or recent graduate. Find out more about how you can become an eMentor.
Return to Nottingham to talk about your line of work, inform and inspire the next generation. Our students are eager to learn of the careers opportunities open to them with a degree in Economics from Nottingham, and to do so from former graduates of the School of Economics is especially compelling.
If you would like to return to the University, please contact us with a brief description of your career and the area you would be willing to talk about.
Internships and work experience
Would you be willing to offer a summer placement or internship at your place of work to a current Nottingham student? Work experience opportunities provide a real advantage to our students and, in return, their energy, talent and motivation in professional environments can offer tremendous value to employers.
Contact us with some details of the internship such as location, duration (one to four weeks is typical) and the type of work. Payment would be up to you, although some help with travel and living expenses would be helpful.
Support the University
Donations from the University's community of alumni, students, parents and staff have created the fund Cascade, to support transformative student projects. Judged by a panel of leading alumni donors, the fund awards up to £25,000 to projects that will enrich the lives of our students and people across the world.
