No matter when you left Priestley College you can always recall the great friends you made and experiences you enjoyed. Our Alumni Association has been created to help you remain in contact with your peers, build lifelong networks and to support your career progression.
It was created by, and for, ex-students in July 2015. You are at the heart of the association, just as you were at the centre of life at college. Our goal is to be the biggest and best college alumni association possible, helping you progress both at university and in your career.
As well as offering you many benefits we would also like to give you the opportunity to support the current cohort in various ways.
Ultimately, we hope that being part of the association will be a rewarding experience for you and any student you may help along the way.
The Priestley College Alumni Association offers you a tailored service. If you do not want to take part in certain events, or do not want to receive particular updates, you can choose to opt out.
The following benefits are currently available for members of the Alumni Association:
- Lifelong careers advice
- Help organising reunions
- Alumni Newsletter
- Invitations to college events
- Invitations to speeches from special guests
We are also looking at the feasibility of providing discount cards, online access to the Kit Shop (college’s shop) and a private online community.
What can you offer?
We would like you to consider helping us in some of the following ways although there is no obligation to do so.
Have you ever thought about being a Student Mentor? This will involve answering questions students may have about university courses or jobs. You could even offer work experience, which may help a student secure employment in the future.
You can also help by allowing us to use your success story in promotional material for Priestley College and, if you are really keen, you can take part in a testimonial video.
We look forward to working with you in the future.
