Loughborough Alumni

Giving your time

Volunteering

Many alumni give back to Loughborough by sharing their career experiences with students by giving guest lectures, offering interview tips, sitting on panels or sharing their story in an online profile.

Guest lectures and panel events

Working alongside our Careers Network, Loughborough Enterprise Network, academic departments and the Students’ Union, alumni support student development by sharing their expertise and experiences with students across a range of areas.

In recent months, alumni have given their time through a number of different initiatives including sessions on sport, creative industries, STEM and more. 

If you are interested in offering your expertise, check out the list below and please let us know. We’ll be in touch when we have suitable opportunities.  

Upcoming opportunities

If you are interested in supporting future activities, or would like to share your story in an alumni profile, please get in touch.

Careers in Research - Autumn 2020

This event is aimed at PhD students who are considering their next steps after academia. 

If you're a doctoral graduate (from Loughborough or elsewhere) and could contribute valuable insights into life after a PhD, please get in touch.

Virtual Company Tours

Each year, students from Loughborough University London visit a range of different businesses across London to understand the working environments, and to ask questions from staff. This year we would like to continue this by conducting online tours of companies - these could be anywhere in the world. If you would like to find out more information, please get in touch.

Why it Matters - share your story 

Why does the subject that you studied at Loughborough matter? How has your degree supported your career?

We're looking for alumni to share their stories in video and/ or written format to support sixth form students considering their higher education options.

Black Future Leaders Mentoring Programme

A programme running throughout the 2020-21 academic year. We are looking for alumni mentors to work with Loughborough students, support goal setting, career aspirations and more. Please get in touch if you are interested. 

LU Incubator sessions - supporting start-up businesses - monthly

LU Inc. brings together entrepreneurs working on innovative ideas. Members of LU Inc. can receive training, access to workshops and resources. 

We are looking for alumni to support these entrepreneurs in a range of areas through monthly workshops. 

Loughborough University London Partnerships: Talent+ - 2021

In 2021, the UK Government will introduce the Post Study Work Visa (PSWV), allowing international students who have secured a pass mark to apply for a visa through a fast-track route. Employers will not have to sponsor the graduate to work for them.

To support our students at Loughborough University London, we are seeking 10 employer partners to pilot a new scheme in line with this new visa. Employer partners will work with Loughborough University London to agree a set number of positions that can be advertised to our students.

Working with employers, LU London will deliver skills sessions that can help to prepare students for specific types of roles – with an emphasis on the skills required to secure a job with one of our partners. At the end of their studies, the students can apply for your roles, equipped with the necessary skills to get up and running quickly. 

Get in touch for more information. 

Support events

As part of our alumni events programme, we also call on our alumni to get involved with events for fellow graduates.

In early 2019, four alumni came together to form a panel on “An Insight into International Business”, held at the Shard in London.

If you could support us by offering premises suitable for drinks receptions and alumni gatherings, please get in touch.
