Alumni Contacts, Friends and Networking Events
As an Alumnus or friend of Warwick Chemistry you have access to one of the fastest growing and highest quality science departments in the country, with people who have studied or worked there going on to develop their careers. You will be able to expand a network of contacts who work in many different industries around the world, and keep up to date with work in one of the world's best Chemistry departments.
Our Alumni networks on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn give you access to people from recent alumni and current graduates, to people at decision-making levels in major companies and organisations worldwide.
We would welcome your support for the Department of Chemistry, whether that's through a donation to our work (choose 'Other' and type 'Department of Chemistry' into the box); volunteering to be an alumni mentor; or something else entirely - please get in touch today. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
We regularly organise Chemistry Alumni Events, visits to the Department, have lecture series and welcome pre-arranged ad-hoc visits, but all Warwick Alumni are welcome at our open days, guest lectures and to use our department resources by agreement. If you would like to host an event here, please email chem-sec at warwick dot ac dot uk or call us on +44 24765 23653
Use your contacts!
If you are an Alumnus who has a child at school, or knows someone who would benefit from a visit or contact with our mentoring team, please get in touch with our mentoring scheme or Nick Barker, our Outreach Officer.
Where do people go?
Many of our graduates work in Research or teaching, but many go on to work in Medicine, Pharmaceuticals, and Government, the Armed Forces, Finance, Management.. the list goes on.. We supply many industries where objective thinking, advanced numeracy, excellent time management (remember those contact hours!) and an analytical mind sets them above their peers. Some go on to give valuable time to charities, the community or in science communication. Where did you go? - update us! Get in touch!
Some go on to pursue hobbies they started here: one of our postgraduate students for example won a Radio Presenting Award and presented a Radio 1 show as a result.
The work we do at department level complements that of the Development and Alumni Relations Team who co-ordinate giving at the institutional level.
