Our alumni play an important part in the success of the University and new students by continuing to be involved after graduation.
Involvement can take many forms. You can inspire someone by sharing your experience and knowledge, you can help our future graduates enhance their career prospects or you can give generously to help our students succeed.
Share your story
Many of our alumni like to let us know what they have been up to since graduation, and are happy for their stories and experiences to be shared with their fellow graduates.
Would you like to share your own story with the alumni community? If so, please fill out the mini-interview below and send us a picture from then or now.
Kick-start a career
Many alumni provide industrial placements and career development advice to enhance the professional prospects of our students. Close contact with alumni from a wide range of professional backgrounds helps our students graduate with all the skills they need to enter successful careers in Geosciences and related industries. It also helps companies recruit the best students with the necessary skills and talents.
To discuss how your company can provide an industrial placement or internship, contact Sanne Dijkstra-Downie.
The School of GeoSciences works closely with a wide variety of industry partners. Interaction between the industrial and academic sectors often generates exciting new ideas and opportunities.
There are many ways in which you can support the School, from one-off donations and regular giving by Direct Debit, to leaving a gift in your will.
Being an alumni donor allows you to stay connected with our work and our students, and to help the next generation of alumni on their way. If you would like more detailed information about endowments, gifts or scholarships, please contact Sanne Dijkstra-Downie.
