About the Global Graduates programme:

Funded through the generous contributions of alumni donors, every year 32 students are given the opportunity to participate in the Global Graduates programme and meet alumni professionals across the world. Over 85% of students who are selected onto the programme are from low income backgrounds and may be the first in their families to receive a university education. Help inspire our students and encourage them to achieve great things, regardless of their background, by talking to them on the day.
