Our new online community platform, Royal Holloway Connect, brings together alumni from around the world to help support each other.
Making the transition from university to employment is daunting at the best of times, and these are not the best of times. Our 2020 graduates face significant challenges entering the job market amidst a global pandemic whose shockwaves will be felt for some time to come.
To help support these graduates, we are launching our new online alumni mentoring platform. Through Royal Holloway Connect, alumni can give practical and tangible support to our recent graduates.
Whether you're looking to be a mentor or a mentee all alumni can join Royal Holloway Connect by visiting royalholloway.alumni.community.
