Staying involved

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?

As we're sure you are keenly aware, experience is everything, and we work hard to ensure our students have every opportunity to apply their skills in the work place prior to graduation. 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, please contact our Professional Development Manager.
