Alumni Telethon Campaign

Northumbria University’s Spring Alumni Telethon will be taking place from the 22 April - 15 May 2022. Over the course of the campaign, our team of student callers will reach out to over 4,000 Northumbria Alumni to seek support for our Higher Education without Barriers Campaign.

While raising funds is the primary purpose of the calls, they also provide a unique opportunity for current students to interact with graduates and hear about where life has taken them since they graduated. In many cases, students can gain valuable advice and inspiration for their own future careers.

To find out more about the Telethon or to request a call please email: - alumni@northumbria.ac.uk

Meet the team

Josh

I'm Josh and I’m in my fourth year of the MLaw course here at Northumbria. It’s been great studying at the University, and I think the staff are all lovely. When I have free time (which is rare!) I like to run and I’m quite the avid gamer, but you’re most likely to catch me on the train reading the Financial Times.

Reaching out to the diverse range of Northumbria alumni has been extremely insightful during my time on the campaign. This ranges from graduates working all over the world, to some who aren’t entitled to disclose information about their current job (top secret, I know!). It’s a great feeling to have lengthy conversations with graduates who are just as interested in my studies, as I am theirs. One graduate I had the pleasure of speaking to was very insightful and explained a lot of their life experiences in a great level of detail which just goes to show how lengthy and interesting these conversations can be! Towards the end of the conversation he summarised what he had learned and said, “learn to realise what you have”. He went on to say, “If you’re thinking correctly, you’ll learn to stop overvaluing the things you don’t have, and you’ll stop undervaluing what you do have”.
