Our alumni are a big part of our success and an important part of our future.

We have opportunities available to work with current students, where you can share insights into what careers are available in an increasingly competitive and global job market. There are opportunities for companies to offer student internships, placements and talks. You could also be a mentor to a student interested in working in your field.

There are also many opportunities to return in person, and talk to our students about how you shaped your own career. Perhaps you have lived or worked in the regions of the world that we study and could give a talk to bring a place or a subject to life. By showing our current students what you have achieved, you can build the confidence and inspiration for them to follow in your footsteps.


Get in touch


Each year we proudly present our graduating cohort with their degrees and celebrate their fantastic achievement. We would love to hear from you following graduation, so please do get in touch.

The Durham University Alumni Community - DUNELM - is the main alumni association for former Durham students in the UK and provides exciting opportunities to get involved with the University.

The Community exists to provide quality events for alumni to visit their old campus, connect with old friends, and to facilitate activities. DUNELM has local branches regionally, nationally and internationally, and is always keen to hear from potential organisers.
