Alumni Services

November 2013 | Alumni Profiles

This month we hear from a budding entrepreneur working at Virgin Money, learn about an inspirational graduation speech and trace a path from linguistics degree to debut novel.

We are interested in the role that the University has played in your life, either directly - in terms of skills and knowledge - or indirectly, via friends, experiences or chance encounters.

Please get in touch and you and your experiences could feature on our website.
