On behalf of everyone here at the University of Stirling and over 93,000 former students around the globe, we would like to welcome the class of 2020 to our alumni community!

When you graduate from the University of Stirling, you automatically become a life-long member of our alumni community. Jennifer Forman, Alumni Relations Manager, explains how to take advantage of the wide range of opportunities we offer to all our graduates.

Lifelong careers support

We keep supporting you long after you’ve completed your studies and taken your first steps into the world of work. That’s why we give you life-long access to our Careers and Employability Service (CES). From refining your CV, to interview practice and much more, our Careers and Employability consultants are here for you no matter what stage of your professional journey you’re at. Here are some useful links to get you started:

  • The CES offers alumni lifelong access to its services. If you are looking for work, considering postgraduate study, would like a CV-check or some tips for interview success get in touch to make an appointment to speak to one of our consultants.
  • Our online vacancy system displays a wide range of graduate jobs across the UK, as well as paid graduate internships, local paid part-time work and volunteering opportunities.
  • The Open University has created a MOOC on ‘Just Graduated? What Next?’ covering a range of topics to help you make your career choices.

Stay in touch!

Graduates can opt in to continue to access to your university email account for two years after graduation, via the portal homepage.

You can also join our alumni communities on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and connect with old and new friends through our network of alumni ambassadors. If you lose contact with your friends over time, we can even help you get in touch with them!

Get involved in our alumni community

We’re launching a series of webinars beginning with a look at employability in tough times. This one on 2 July at 2pm will be particularly useful for our graduates entering the job market now. Register via TARGETconnect and hear from some 2008/9 alumni who faced challenging times.

You can also join our alumni and student networking platform, The Stirling Network, to get career-related advice, request a mentoring relationship or learn about a specific industry.

Help us continue to support student scholarship and hardship funds by helping to spread the word on the importance of philanthropic funding, or through making a donation yourself at some point in the future. 

Discounts

Who doesn’t want to save money?! As a University of Stirling graduate, you can take advantage of some great discounts. Take a closer look at what’s on offer here!

Alumni events

The Alumni Office helps to organise alumni events all over the world. We also encourage and support the organisation of freestanding events and reunions by independent groups of alumni. If you’d like us to help you organise an event, please email alumni@stir.ac.uk.

Keep up to date with news from the University

Don’t forget to sign up for our annual University magazine, Stirling Minds, which gives you updates from the campus as well as details of alumni events and reunions and the popular ‘class notes’ section. We will also send you regular e-newsletters in spring, autumn and winter which include forthcoming reunion events to keep in touch with your classmates. Make sure we have your up-to-date contact information to find out about events.

Congratulations again on your achievements! We hope you have had a fabulous student experience at Stirling with many happy memories and we hope to see you back on campus soon either at your graduation ceremony or one of our alumni events.
