Your relationship with the University of Westminster doesn’t end once you graduate. As an alumnus you can stay involved in a variety of ways
Graduation is a very exciting time at the University of Westminster. The alumni team have a presence at the ceremonies which take place twice a year, and we are always looking for alumni volunteers to help us engage with new graduates and encourage them to update their details with the University of Westminster Alumni Association.
International Recruitment Fairs
We are always on the lookout for alumni volunteers to help our International Officers at student recruitment events and International Fairs overseas, please view our events page for the upcoming schedule of international visits and events.
Could you talk to prospective students about what life is like studying at the University of Westminster and living in London at one of our open days?
Give a Careers Talk
Come and share your career experience to date and inspire current students to achieve their goals and reach their full potential. Students benefit tremendously from hearing from alumni who have ‘been there and done that’ and are able to give invaluable advice by sharing their experiences working in a particular role or sector.
Mentor a student
Mentoring is a fantastic opportunity to develop a new skill for your CV as well as a chance to share the benefit of your experience with an eager current student. As a mentor, you can help a student find out more about the reality of certain jobs, sectors and professions based on your personal experiences.
Offer work experience or placements
One of the most effective ways that alumni can help students is to give them the chance to gain valuable work experience that enhances their future employability. You could help them to experience an industry and its culture, develop transferable skills and grow their networks. At the same time, your organisation will benefit from the specialist skills, fresh new ideas and positive enthusiasm of current students.
Please email [email protected] if you are interested in any of the above opportunities.
