|IDS Alumni Ambassadors Group|
We encourage all alumni to organise activities for alumni to be involved in. We’re happy to support as many activities and alumni as we have time for.
Below we have outlined what our goals, what support is available, and a list of ideas to get you started.
If you’d like to organise something from the list or have another idea that fits with the goals, please send the alumni relations office a brief outline and we will arrange a chat to discuss it further.
At a minimum the alumni relations office will work with organisers to promote activities, invite alumni to events (and other community members like prospective students and partners if relevant) and provide you with a briefing on the alumni network. If we have time, we can also arrange to send some printed literature relevant to your event and some IDS branded merchandise.
For social only get-togethers IDS alumni relations office will only pay for IDS staff costs (i.e., food, drink, local travel, and accommodation if needed). Alumni are expected to pay for themselves. However, if you think that this could disadvantage alumni in your area, please contact us to discuss further.
Where an activity provides experiences for alumni and/or IDS that reflect our goals the alumni relations office can offer up to £500 for expenses. If we think an activity is eligible, we will ask you to complete a form. We expect all alumni activities that are given funding to provide a brief report on costs when the activity is completed. Please note that we have very limited funding for expenses for alumni activities, we expect to be able to fund 2 to 3 per financial year.
