How can I contribute to current-student experiences?
Speak at a careers event
We regularly hold careers days for our current students, and would love to hear from recent graduates who would be willing to talk about their career to the current cohort of students.
Provide a student profile
We are always looking for student profiles that share information about your course and time at Nottingham or your career progression since graduating. Contact us for more details.
Work placements and internships
We are interested in identifying work placement opportunities and internships for current students and new graduates and we would be keen to hear from you if you think that you are able to offer a work placement or internship.
Would you be able to mentor a current student or recent graduate? Please contact us if you are able to offer mentoring opportunities.
Continuing Professional Development
Whenever you graduated, you may wish to come back to University either to pursue a postgraduate qualification or to attend a public lecture or research seminar. If you would like to attend an event in the school, we would love to welcome you back and can add you to our circulation list for public lectures.
If you are thinking about a postgraduate qualification, take a look at our postgraduate taught and postgraduate research pages to find out more. We would reccomend attending an open day so that you can see just what options are available to you for continued study with the School of English.
We also offer a number of distance learning courses which offer Masters-level teaching but this is delivered online so that you have the flexibility to study part-time and to work around your lifestyle. You might be particularly interested in our new MA Applied English programme which features a range of linguistic, literary, drama and Viking studies modules that will enable you to choose a bespoke route of study that matches your interests and ambitions. We are currently offering a free trial of this course so why not have a look and find out how it could work for you?
Our online Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses are designed to help you influence your everyday business communication and achieve your workplace goals, helping with progression or breaking through into a new field. We offer a range of flexible online courses to help you become a communication expert at your own pace.
The current CPD offering is provided by Linguistic Profiling for Professionals (LiPP) – our School's research and business unit who specialise in enhancing workplace communication, leadership and teamwork strategy.
You may wish to come to our Summer School for distance learning students that we run at the end of June each year. We reserve a number of places especially for alumni from the school who may wish to consider coming back to university. Please contact Dr Pawel Szudarski for further information.
