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.

Your career

As a graduate of the University of Nottingham, you can continue to use the Careers and Employability Service to help build your career. They provide guidance and advice, run events, and have a job vacancy service.

Your stories

Our graduates may have completed their studies with us, but we don't want to lose touch.

Get involved

Career talks

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.


Give your time

Giving your time is a great way to learn new skills, get more involved in the university and meet alumni. We offer a range of roles that you can do from home, work, in the UK or from anywhere in the world. Whether you can offer 30 minutes or 30 hours, your time will make a positive difference.


Our mentoring schemes offer Nottingham alumni the opportunity to provide meaningful career support to current students and fellow alumni. Mentoring develops via remote contact over the academic year, giving participants time to benefit from their mentor's professional experience and knowledge.

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, Cascade awards funds to projects that will enrich the lives of our students and people across the world.


Keep in touch

The university alumni website provides many ways to keep in touch and stay connected and lists of the latest alumni events.
