Alumni and Industry Fellowship Programme
Volunteer as part of our Alumni and Industry Fellowship Programme and make a difference to the lives of Nottingham Trent University (NTU) students. Our worldwide network of 1,000 talented alumni and industry volunteers give their time to support, encourage, and inspire our current students and recent graduates.
What is the Programme?
From speaking at events and mentoring students, to providing guided interview practice and publishing blogs, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved – wherever you are in the world, and whatever your interests might be. Your knowledge, skills, connections, and experience could make the key difference to our students’ professional prospects.
NTU prides itself on being an inclusive community and we particularly welcome applications from alumni who represent the diversity of our local communities and wider society.
Volunteering is a great way to stay connected with the University, and your peers. In addition to supporting our students and developing your own portfolio of skills, the key benefits of volunteering include:
- use of the title "Alumni / Industry Fellow"
- a prestigious and dedicated award for outstanding Alumni and Industry Fellows, presented at graduation
- access to our campuses, facilities, and resources
- continuing professional development
- priority invitations to NTU’s events and initiatives, including our annual Alumni and Industry Fellows Celebration Event
- discounted membership to RSViP, an exclusive “members only” networking group based in Nottingham.
Being an international student could be internally lonely, and creating such a platform to inspire the students is an awesome idea.

What you can expect
Your skills, talents, and ideas will benefit students. There is no minimum time requirement for volunteering with us – our programme is flexible, and it is designed to work around your own interests and availability. We will keep you updated on the various opportunities available throughout the year.
With nearly 1,000 Alumni and Industry Fellows taking part in the Programme to date – benefitting thousands of students and contributing thousands of hours and experience between them – this is a great time to join our growing community of volunteers.

Really interesting and engaging. Pitched at the right level, and it linked to several things I discussed in the lecture afterwards. Will certainly invite back!
