Supporting international community events

Perfect if you want to hone your people skills, becoming an Alumni Mentor gives you experience in advising others about their career and helping them to take the next step.

Your main role is to provide informal guidance about your experience in different employment sectors and professions. Many mentors look over CVs and offer interview advice. You can share your professional experiences and personal insights with mentees, giving them a greater understanding of career journeys, professional opportunities and employer expectations.

Time commitment: 1-2 days per month

Become an Alumni Buddy

Description: Many UCL students take internships in a different country while they’re studying. As an Alumni Buddy, you can support those students interning at a company in your country. You’ll act as a point of contact for the student and can help them understand and experience the customs and culture of your country.

Time commitment: 10 hours over approximately 3 meetings. This programme kicks off in June when students go overseas on their internships.

Sharing your career experience

Description: If you’ve been out in the world of work, your stories and experiences are invaluable to current UCL students considering their next steps after study. Coming back to UCL to speak to students at all levels can be really rewarding – and can help you reflect on your own career highlights too.

Time commitment: One-off activity – 1-3 hour lecture time. You’ll join a ‘pool’ of volunteers who will be offered various opportunities throughout the year.
