Careers Service

Share your story, help a student

If you are a SOAS Graduate and Alum, you may be able to help current students in two ways:

Provide a case study

We ask SOAS Graduates to provide case studies which include their current job title, the organisation and country in which they work, as well as more detailed information about their role, the interview/application process they went through and the key factors that landed them their current job. 

Case studies are instrumental in helping current students see what SOAS Graduates have gone on to accomplish with their degrees. If you would like to provide a case study and picture, please complete our online questionnaire.

Take an Alum for Coffee

SOAS Alumni Relations and the Careers Service are collaborating on an exciting new initiative to give alumni an opportunity to share their career experiences with current students. 

The ‘Take an Alum for Coffee’ scheme will enable students to contact and seek advice from alumni already working in the sectors, industries or roles they are interested in pursuing. Students can either literally ‘take an alum for coffee’ at a mutually convenient location, or they can meet virtually (e.g. over Skype).

If you are interested in becoming involved in either of these schemes, please contact the Careers Team or the Alumni Team.
