I gained a first class degree and believe that this programme has prepared me very well for my future plans. Initially I want to be professional analyst, then move into an investment manager position.

College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences


The College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences benefits from a strong community of alumni from around the globe. We welcome the opportunity for our alumni to connect with us in a wide variety of ways, from volunteering to work with our students, to joining an alumni network, to making a donation to our campaign. Working together we aim to support both the future ambitions of our alumni community and the College.

Your relationship with us doesn’t end when you graduate and we are always keen to hear from you. Whether you are an alumnus of the College or an alumnus of another College with an interest in our work, we are here to support you. Browse the latest news and events, opportunities to get involved and the benefits available to you as an Exeter graduate.

Keeping us up to date with where you are and what you are doing enables us to develop events and opportunities that will be of interest to you. We would really like to hear from you, please do update your details by emailing the Alumni Engagement Officer Kate Houghton.

Volunteering at Exeter is a great way to stay connected with the University and support the alumni of the future. We are continually developing a wide range of opportunities for alumni to get involved in support of College activity and the student experience. These include:

Supporting employability:

  • Give a careers talk
  • Mentor a student
  • Develop students CV and interview skills
  • Provide a work placement
  • Recruit a graduate

Open Days: We hold a number of open days throughout the year for prospective and offer-holding students. Alumni are invited to join discipline talks to share their experiences and offer an insight into where their degree has taken them.

Providing a profile: Profiles are a great way to celebrate the achievements of our alumni, to show our current students the kinds of career paths and successes they can look forward to, and to show prospective students what life at Exeter and beyond could offer.

Giving a lecture: Share your expertise with current students as part of a specific subject or society programme.

International country contact: Live outside of the UK? Help fellow alumni renew friendships and strengthen ties with the University by acting as a contact for your country and helping to organise events in your region.

If you would like to know more about any of these activities and how you can support the College by volunteering your time, please get in touch with our Alumni Engagement Officer Imogene Halsey-Dudley
