Your College Alumni Relations team

The CoSS Alumni Relations team, initiates, builds and maintains relationships with graduates of social science around the world.

We source alumni to be involved and engaged with the College, whether that’s by being guest speakers and panel members, by offering career support and project placements to students, mentoring, or engaging them in research projects (and more!). In turn we invite alumni to College and School events that are relevant to them, tell them about our latest research and other news, giving them the opportunity to stay connected to Birmingham, each other and you.

Some of the ways alumni can support your work

  • Alumni mentors can help increase the employability of our students, and help smooth their transition into successful careers
  • Curriculum, or other, guest lectures and webinars help to create a distinctive educational experience, with different perspectives
  • Reading alumni profiles and seeing what they have gone on to do can broaden the outlook of current students, giving insight into the myriad careers that a social sciences degree can lead to. This can also help prospective students, and their parents, to make informed choices
  • Our alumni include those in senior positions in a variety of sectors, and include policy makers, advocates and senior practioners who can provide valuable networks for academics to help shape, disseminate and advocate for their research. 

These are just a few examples - if you have ideas on how our alumni might be able to support your work, please get in touch.
