Welcome to the Alumni Association

Graduation for Class of 2020

We know that the delay to your graduation ceremony due to the pandemic is a disappointment to many but we aim to celebrate with you at a date in the future when it is deemed safe to do so. All information regarding your ceremony will be sent to your email, so please ensure that you keep your details up to date. General graduation information is updated regularly on our dedicated Graduation page.

Finding employment or further study

We understand the challenges 2020 graduates face because of the impact of Coronavirus, but it is now more important than ever to make sure you receive the right careers advice. There is a lot of help available to you as alumni whether this is help to find employment or advice about further study (and don’t forget you receive a 20% fee discount as alumni). We can help with interview practice, job search, CVs, internships and making connections and networks. You have lifetime membership of Careerlink, with access to thousands of job listings and one to one support.

Graduate Outcomes Survey

The Graduate Outcomes survey (www.graduateoutcomes.ac.uk/) is a major UK wide survey which looks to understand whether you’re in employment, have continued with further study or are doing something else and to what extent your qualification played a part. All graduates from UK universities are surveyed 15 months after they leave. This means if you leave in the summer the survey will come to you at some point in the autumn the following year. You will hear about the survey by email and reminders by text. The alumni team will contact you about this important survey throughout your first year as alumni.

Network Account and Library Access

We are aware of the importance wellbeing support may be to you as you enter a new phase in your life. We are delighted to announce that the WellAll students that have been successfully awarded have had their Roehampton network account, which includes your N:Drive and OneDrive, extended until March 2021. Your library account has similarly been extended until this time. This means you can continue to borrow books, access online resources and continue to use your email. 

Additionally, all library loans have been extended until 30 September and fines have been waived. You will need to keep hold of any items you have on loan until the Library contacts you about return options.

Wellbeing Support


We are aware of the importance wellbeing support may be to you as you enter a new phase in your life.

You can book an appointment with the Wellbeing Team to find out what support is available to you. Contact aleata.alstad-calkins@roehampton.ac.uk for more information.
