School of Environment, Education and Development


When you study with us in Manchester, we begin a lifelong relationship. Our graduates are our best advocate of a SEED education.

We would really like to keep in touch with you and hear about your adventures and experiences.

Hear from some of our alumni:


Your Manchester Online

The best way to let us know what you’re doing since you left Manchester is to join Your Manchester Online:

You can:

  • keep us up to date with your contact details and your job role;
  • leave notes for your class mates;
  • register for a Manchester email address for life; 
  • find out about all the benefits to which being one of our alumni entitles you; and
  • find out about alumni events at the University in the UK and overseas.

The Careers Service offer support up to two years after graduation.


Our magazine for alumni, Newslink is the best way to hear about developments in teaching and research across SEED, about public engagement activities and also what your fellow alumni have been up to.

We’d love to hear your updates and stories whether it’s your recent travels, a career update, your memories of the School and the University or a memorable experience on fieldwork, or a recent marriage. To receive a copy of the newsletter, please make sure Your Manchester Online has your current email address.

Engaging with graduates

You are a great source of knowledge, and inspiration for our students whether about a particular employment or research sector, or about transferable skills. Your success story can inspire our future graduates and help them to make the life-changing decisions about the future they are facing while they’re with us.

We regularly invite our alumni back to campus for our Guardian Award Winning ‘Meet the Professionals’ speed networking events. SEED alumni have been essential lecturers on research modules across the School from undergraduate to PhD researchers.

Other alumni have been welcomed back to the School to give talks at special events, which is always hugely popular with students. Perhaps you might like to share your career experiences on an employability module, offer a work shadowing or mentoring opportunity, or suggest a research problem for an applied module.


We’re happy to host a reunion for you and your class mates on campus, whether it’s simply by providing a venue and catering, arranging a tour of the University and the School, contacting your class mates, or helping out with the logistics.
