Your Alumni Services
Here at UCFB we offer the alumni the chance to gain valuable advice and guidance directly from those who have already experienced life as a UCFB student.
Alumni mentoring provides the perfect opportunity for current students to network and engage with UCFB alumni. It offers the chance for students to gain valuable advice and guidance directly from those who have already experienced life as a UCFB student.
We aim to pair students up with the most suitable mentor possible, meaning: it’s likely that if a student is studying BA (Hons) Sports Business & Coaching, they’ll be paired with a mentor who studied either the same course, a similar course, or are working within a relevant field.
We allow our mentors and mentees to agree between themselves how often they engage with each other. The means of communication can be via phone, face to face or online (e.g. Skype) and all mentors have the required skillset and professionalism to provide our students with the best support possible.
Alumni Ambassadors play a huge role in sharing their unique knowledge which has been built up over their time spent as a student, and they remain a key part to UCFB’s future success. Similar to our alumni mentors, our ambassadors are on hand to provide support to our students, with the focus on representing UCFB at both internal and external events.
Our alumni ambassadors support UCFB by volunteering their time to:
- Take part in our online Q&A sessions and answer queries from prospective students;
- Represent our alumni network at Open Days and Taster Days;
- Provide testimonials, quotes and interviews;
- Participate in online webinars.
Our alumni committee is made up of UCFB graduates, Student Services and our Alumni department. The committee meet every two months to discuss everything alumni with the intention of improving our services and the engagement provided for our alumni. The committee has been developed to ensure UCFB is doing all we can to provide continued support to our alumni and because former students are involved, decisions that are discussed and made during the committee ensures students are well represented and always put first.
