Volunteer from home

No opportunity to come to campus? There are still plenty of other ways for you to get involved, wherever you are based in the world..

Leeds Network

You can join the Leeds Network.

This is an online careers resource for alumni to pass on valuable advice and knowledge to current students. Simply create an online profile to describe your job, career path and tips for those looking to get into your industry.

If you wish, students can contact you with further questions and you can control how many enquiries you receive a month.

Find out more information here, or sign up directly here.

Alumni ambassadors

Could you raise aspirations to higher education and help Leeds recruit a new generation of students? The University of Leeds invites you to spread your love for Leeds wherever you are in the world.

Since September 2017, we have had over 100 alumni from 17 different countries across 5 continents offer to volunteer as an ambassador - and we want to increase this number further!

Alumni Ambassadors attend various events such as higher education fairs, conversions and offer holder and alumni mixers, or they may visit schools and colleges. Here, prospective students are given the chance to enquire about the University and find out what it is like to live and study in Leeds. We would love for you, as part of our valued alumni community, to join us on these occasions where you are encouraged to share your personal experience of studying at Leeds with future students.

You will receive support and all the information you need to become a fantastic advocate for Leeds. If you would like any more information, please contact Alumni Volunteering.


You can share your career expertise and advise a current student through one of the mentoring schemes across campus.

Members of staff will look carefully at your application form to ensure you are matched with the most suitable student with an interest in your industry.

Currently, the following schools have mentoring schemes which you can get involved with:

Business School
School of Music
School of Law
Faculty of Biological Sciences
School of Media and Communications

For more information, please contact Alumni Volunteering.
