Hello class of 2014!

Welcome to the Alumni Association

Graduation isn’t the end of your time with Leeds College of Music – it’s more like the end of the beginning.

You might no longer be starting your day with a cup of Café Bar's finest rocket fuel, or feasting your ears on the sublime chaos of our corridor symphonies (though you’ll be welcome – hello 10% alumni discount on postgraduate tuition fees!), but your free and automatic membership of the Alumni Association means we’ll be here for you long after graduation.

In the early days of your career, we can help you continue to build your network, stay in touch with each other, and support you in getting your career off the ground. And in the future, you could be sharing your expertise by mentoring current students, providing work placements or even giving a lecture or two.

You’ll always find an open door at Leeds College of Music. Whatever stage in life you’re at, there’ll be a way for you to stay involved with life at the conservatoire.

As a member of the Alumni Association, you get access to a range of benefits and services, designed exclusively for you – see the blue panel on the right (or scroll to the bottom if you're using a smartphone) for details. These are all redeemable with your alumni membership card, which we'll be posting out to you shortly.

And for those of you who are entrepreneurially minded, the Enterprise Team offers additional career and business start-up support for up to five years after graduation – including career development bursaries of up to £500 to help you attend courses and conferences; and ‘proof of concept’ bursaries of up to £1,000 to help you test a new business idea. That’s alongside free enterprise events and masterclasses, and access to a professional mentor. Contact Dr Paul Abbott, Head of Events and Enterprise, at: p.abbott@lcm.ac.uk for more information.

Likewise, the Careers Team at Leeds College of Music can help you prepare your CV, hone your job applications, and identify the variety of career options that you could pursue. You can reach them at: careers@lcm.ac.uk

We love to hear your views, news, questions and ideas, and we’re always here to help. So please keep us up-to-date with your details and stay in touch!
