Regular tours took place around the cloisters overlooking the main quadrangle, taking in the Flaxman Gallery and Jeremy Bentham’s ‘auto-icon’. In addition, the Grant Museum, Strang Print Room and Petrie Museum extended their visiting hours.

As a recent graduate of the Architectural Diploma programme, I was looking forward to revisiting these spaces afresh, to learn about their history rather than simply scurrying through them to return library books or construct exhibitions.

Want to get into charity? Go into business…Esmé Jones (English Literature and Language, 2010) reports on the Not-For-Profit UCL Alumni Professional Networking Event.

I have never been to an event before where I have been able to talk so openly with other guests about my frustrations, expectations and hopes for my later career. It was my first event as an ‘alumni’, and I was very impressed – it was fantastic to be invited back to UCL and to network in a personal, as well as professional capacity with new graduates, more ‘experienced’ graduates and a stellar panel.
