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.

Why it Matters - share your story - ongoing

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.

Get in touch if you are interested in contributing.

Loughborough University London Partnerships - 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. 

Finance Society talks - Thursday evenings, term time, Loughborough University

To resume in the future, please get in touch to express interest

The Loughborough Finance and Investment Society hold regular guest lectures, panel events and workshops to inspire their student members and to connect with people from the sector.
We are looking for alumni volunteers to contribute their experiences through sessions with the students.

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.
