We’ve recently created the new UAL Alumni Volunteering pages – where you can find out about all the ways you can volunteer with UAL, and where you can let us know how you want to be involved.

Volunteering offers the chance for you to give something back to UAL, current students and fellow alumni. By getting involved you will:

  • stay connected to UAL
  • make a difference to students
  • boost your skills
  • expand your networks
  • identify future talent

How you can volunteer

Volunteering at UAL is for everyone. Whether you’re a recent graduate or you’ve reached the pinnacle of your career, we’d love for you to get involved. We’re looking for alumni who can guide and inspire UAL students and graduates, both face-to-face and online.

And there are lots of different opportunities for you to share your expertise and time:

  • Become a mentor
  • Join a committee
  • Be an ambassador
  • Speak at an event
  • Host an event
  • Organise a reunion
  • Tell us what you’re up to

What do you need to do?

Register your interest with one, two (or all!) of the volunteering opportunities, based on what suits you and how much time you can offer. After you've registered your interest, we will contact you when a suitable opportunity comes up.

Perhaps you already volunteer with the colleges - that’s great! If you volunteer directly with one of the colleges or courses then get in touch by emailing alumni@arts.ac.uk so we can record your efforts and include you in UAL’s volunteer network.
