Get Involved

The contributions of our alumni are very important to us. There are many ways that you can get involved with the work or development of the European Institute.


Connect with our students

Our students really appreciate getting advice from alumni, and we’re always so grateful to all those alumni who want to reach out and help.

Networking lunches -  The European Institute runs a series of popular alumni-student networking events, and we are always looking for alumni who are able to take part in these discussions. Meet-ups usually happen over lunch or drinks, and often focus on a theme or profession.

Ask an Alum - Would you be willing to answer student questions by email? Students want to hear from alumni about what it’s like to study in the European Institute or at LSE, or about finding an apprenticeship or job after graduation.

If you’d like to be an ‘Alumni Ambassador’ for the European Institute, and contribute to one of our career networking lunches or assist our Ask and Alum email service, let us know at

Help to promote the European Institute

Admissions data shows that a significant proportion of students each year choose the European Institute based on word-of-mouth from alumni. The European Institute regularly produces promotional videos, social media campaigns and marketing brochures to highlight the department for a global audience.
