Ways to get involved & stay connected
After graduating, there are several ways that you can stay connected to QMU.
KEEP IN TOUCH
If you keep us up to date with your current address, we will be able to keep you informed of events, reunions and opportunities at and through QMU, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
SHARE YOUR CAREER STORY AND/OR BECOME A MENTOR
QMU invites you to share the story of your career with current students at the University.
The Careers Team has been working with the Alumni Team to build connections with graduates who are willing to share their career stories and perhaps come in to speak to students.
“Students value the opportunity to discuss how they can apply their studies to the workplace as well as hearing invaluable advice about the recruitment and selection process as well as Continuing Professional Development.”
If you are willing to do a short talk on your career development since graduating, or are keen to find out more about how you can help, please email email@example.com .
Or would you feel able to mentor current QMU students who want to enter the same field of business as you? If you would be willing to help our students, either by taking part in group discussions or being a "career path expert" and answering questions via e-mail, please get in touch and let us know. E-mail us with your degree title, year of graduation and current job details to register your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org
DONATE TO OUR STUDENT FUNDS
We hold a number small number
of funds which are entirely funded
by charitable donations and are
used to directly benefit students
in a number of ways. The four
main funds are listed below.
Donations to these funds can be
made at the accompanying links.
The Unrestricted Fund
This fund allows us to allocate funds according to the greatest needs.
The Vice-Chancellor's Fund
This fund is administered by Vice-Chancellor Professor Petra Wend herself and she has also been very active in fundraising for it. The fund aims to broaden the academic horizons of QMU students by providing small but significant amounts of funding to students wishing to study abroad or take part in exchange programmes.
The LRC Book Fund
This fund provides graduates and families with an opportunity to
help current and future students, by donating money to aid the purchase of new
stock - both hard copies and digital resources. Donations can be targeted towards particular subject areas upon request.
The Student Fund
Grants from The Student Fund are designed to support specific student led projects, initiatives and activities, which can be demonstrated to have a positive benefit to the student, the university and the wider community – whether that be locally, nationally or internationally. As with the LRC Fund, donations can be targeted towards specific areas.
The Martlet Club Fund
Funds from this club will support the work of Queen Margaret University, providing relevant teaching and research which makes a real practical impact and transforms people’s lives. Funds will be put towards a number of projects, for example allowing students to complete CV-enhancing projects or supporting initiatives focused on using QMU’s expertise to the community’s advantage.
Tree of Life Fund
100% of proceeds, from the funds raised, will go to a designated fund approved by the Student Parliament and will directly benefit students at QMU as trees are donated by Dobbies Garden World Ltd.
We have a fascinating and growing archive situated in a dedicating space within the University Library.
Donations from graduates and their relations are always welcome.
If you have any questions or wish to make a donation to the archive, please contact Orla O'OBrian on 0131 474 0000 or email OOBrian1@qmu.ac.uk.
