LSE provides valuable services to alumni, and we at the Centre are very pleased to keep in touch with former MSc Human Rights students.

Facebook group

We have a facebook group for LSE MSc Human Rights Alumni. As well as allowing alumni to keep in touch with former classmates and make new connections, we post information about job opportunities, external events and other information of interest.

Exclusive events

For many years we have organised alumni events, providing former MSc Human Rights students the opportunity to get together and meet former classmates and staff. We have held lectures, dinners and receptions. Speakers have included the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams; Richard Goldstone; and Professor Conor Gearty.

What the Centre can do for you

We hope to enable alumni to maintain contact with each other and would therefore encourage you to register with the Alumni Office|. When you update your details with the Alumni Relations team we will be kept informed of the best way to contact you, so that we can let you know about future alumni events.

We hold an annual events for alumni to which MSc Human Rights alumni are invited.

Alumni events have featured very special guests including Judge Richard Goldstone and Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams. Academic and administrative staff  past and present are also always keen to attend, so its a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and colleagues as well as meet fellow alumni from across the years.

Alumni are of course welcome at all our public events. Details of future events| can be found on the site, and are usually un-ticketed and free to attend. We also provide online articles and transcripts| that you may find of interest, including transcripts of past public events where available, and articles written by Centre staff. In this way we hope to bring the Centre's activities to a global public community. If you would like to receive updates of these events, please register your contact details with the Centre to join our mailing list|.

If you have published an article or a book, tell us about it. We would be delighted to provide details on these web pages in support of your contribution to the study of human rights.

What you can do for the Centre

Tell us what you are doing now. What organisation do you work for? What projects have you been involved in? Have you gone on to further education, perhaps a PhD? Send us a short profile and a picture. If you are happy for us to post this on the web we can support a growing network of alumni keen to know more about what class mates and other alumni are now doing. As you will know, the programme is not vocational but we know that the MSc can be used as a platform into varied career paths, and your experiences will also help inform future students who are keen to explore the possibilities that may develop from an MSc in Human Rights. If you are happy for us to use your profile, then please get in touch with the MSc Human Rights Administrator, Sara Ulfsparre at|.

Graduate destinations

The LSE is building a database of alumni destinations to which you can contribute. This again enables future students who are considering applying to the Human Rights programme to consider whether the course is right for them. What have you gained from the programme and studying at the LSE? Would you recommend the programme to a friend? If you would, then why not recommend it to a stranger - they may be part of your alumni network one day. Click here for more information on graduate destinations|.
