Staying Involved

We are very keen for our alumni to stay involved with the School and there are many ways in which you can do this.

Would you like to act as a point of contact for potential students or be a guest speaker for our current students? Maybe you would like to provide us with a case study of how the skills you gained throughout your geography degree helped you to secure your current job? If you feel you can offer help in this way please complete the form and we will be in touch with you shortly.

Can you help our Geography Students to map their future?


We are keen to get our students out there, out of the ivory tower and into the workplace where they can apply their skills in the modern job market.  As we're sure you are keenly aware, experience is everything.  If you feel you could offer a current student a helping hand as they start out, either with a work placement for a couple of weeks as part of one of our Work Placement modules, or for a longer period through our Year in Industry Scheme we would be delighted to hear from you.

"I was actively encouraged to do a year in industry placement, not only was it a great opportunity to gain experience in the world of work, but the skills learnt on the job helped me have a more productive final year!"
