Alumna of the Year, Emily Macaulay MBE (BA Hons Criminology 2003) welcomed freshers to the University as part of the 2016 Welcome Week programme. What might you do?
Here are just some of the things you can do to help your university:
Alumni Fellowship Programme
From mentoring to mock interviews, career talks to company visits, there are many ways Alumni Fellows can share their knowledge and help students improve their job prospects.
As a Fellow, you’ll spend at least 15 hours per academic year supporting students as they develop vital employability skills. Being an Alumni Fellow is also an excellent way to raise your profile (or your company’s) while developing your own skills.

If you are an employer looking to offer jobs to graduates or placements for undergraduates we can help you source the right individual with the skills your company needs. Taking a student on placement could help you to develop new business ideas, research niche markets, solve technical problems, improve profitability and advance projects that have been sidelined due to lack of time.
The University has one of the best graduate employment records in the UK, which owes much to the emphasis we place on providing relevant and practical vocational education through course elements such as work placements.
The Employability Team organise a number of recruitment events throughout the year and is always interested in hearing from potential exhibitors. Please see the Employability web pages for more details: www.ntu.ac.uk/employability/employers_advice
To find out more about offering placements to students, please contact the Alumni Office on +44 (0)115 848 8777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Submit a graduate profile
If you don't feel you have enough time to participate in the Alumni Fellowship Programme, then why not submit a profile?
If you think your career story could help to guide others on the employment path, see our graduate profiles for examples and consider submitting your own.
Open Days and Graduation
Do you remember the first time you visited your University - and the day you graduated?
You could share your experiences of your time at NTU with prospective students by volunteering to help out at an open day, or celebrate with our new graduates as we give out goody bags after the ceremonies.
If you are interested please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Get involved with your University - I guarantee you will enjoy it.
