Leaving the University

Before you leave the University, please take a moment to check that your personal contact details are up to date and consider any information you may need to retrieve from your IT account. We would also encourage you to take a look at how the University can help you after graduation, via the Careers Network and Alumni Association.

Your University IT Account

At the end of your studies, your IT user account will enter a 30-day expiry period.  During this time, you should back up any documents currently stored within your University One Drive, retrieve any emails within your Loughborough email account and redeem any unused printer credits. 

You will need to do this even if you are returning for another programme of study.  If any external accounts or documents contain your University email address, remember to change this to a personal email address.

Careers Network

As a Loughborough graduate, you will be able to access careers support from the Careers Network after you have left the University. 

Graduate Outcomes Survey

A new national survey was launched in December 2018 to gather a range of information about the activities and perspectives of graduates.  Graduates will be contacted approximately 15 months after graduation and your insights will help current and future Loughborough students to make informed choices about their futures. We very much encourage you to take part.

To support the survey, we are required to hold accurate contact details for you. Just before finishing your programme, we would be very grateful if you could review and update your contact information via the student self-service portal.  This will only be accessible within the 30-day expiry period for your IT user account.

Alumni Association

When you graduate you will automatically be entitled to become a member of the Alumni Association. With access to exclusive events, global networks and opportunities to engage with the University, it's easy to remain part of the Loughborough family. 

Visit the Alumni Association website for further details of what is on offer.
