School of English

Alumni from the School of English


The School of English encourages students who have graduated from the School to keep in contact and become actively involved in the on-going development of an alumni community with the School of English and members of the English Society.

Alumni websites

The School's Facebook page is a great way to keep up to date with the latest news and events in the School.  The University also has a University's Alumni Relations Facebook page with events and information for alumni.

Come to speak at an English Careers Event

Would you be able to come back to the School as a 'visiting' speaker?  We regularly hold careers days for our current students.

We would love to include recent graduates from the School who would be willing to talk about their career to the current cohort of students in the School.  Please contact us if you would be willing to meet current students and talk about your chosen career. 

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. Please contact us if you would be willing to be featured in a student profile on our School website and the prospectus.   

Continuing Professional Development

It doesn't matter how long ago you graduated, you may wish to come back to University either to pursue a postgraduate qualification or to attend the odd public lecture or research seminar.  If you would like to attend an event in the School, do let us know, we would love to have the opportunity to welcome you back and can add you to our circulation list for public lectures.
Please email Mari Hughes in the School of English.

If you are thinking about a postgraduate qualification please take a look at our postgraduate taught and postgraduate research pages to find out more about the courses and any funding that may be available. 

You may wish to come along to all or part of 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. 

Organise an event

Please contact us if you are interested in setting up a regional network or alumni event.  

Work placements and internships

Please help us to identify work placement opportunities/internships for current students and new graduates and let us know if you are able to offer a work placement or internship.   


A number of graduates offer mentoring for applicants and current students and their advice and guidance is invaluable to our students.
Please contact us if you are able to offer mentoring opportunities.   

Get involved and keep in touch!

Please encourage your friends and University friends to get involved and keep us up to date with any changes of address/contact details via the University's alumni webpages.
