Share your expertise, widen your knowledge

There are many ways to keep engaged and collaborate with the Department...

If you currently work in a project that may need casual staff or summer placements you may be able to help our current students get invaluable experience.

We are keen to support our alumni and current students into making connections and help each other. Send the alumni office a brief description of what you need and we'll do our best to help you!

Perhaps you have an idea or contact for a lecture or event we could organise in the future?

Perhaps you own a company or a venue that we can use for an event, lessening our costs; or perhaps you have a specific interest that you can suggest for us to organise events around that topic: whatever your ideas, big or small, we are here to support you! Get in touch.

We welcome working with new business partners.
