Meeting and connecting with others is vital to advancing your research and building your profile. You’ll meet academic colleagues and industry experts at research events, national and international conferences. You’ll have opportunities to present and perhaps publish your research.  

The Leeds alumni community – one of the largest of any UK university – offers opportunities to hear from, and connect with, industry professionals through talks and individual conversations. 

Our established partnerships with leading organisations and companies offer ready-made connections you can tap into.

You may have chance to widen your professional network by working on industry projects and internships, and on large-scale collaborative research partnerships. Our commercialisation team identifies, evaluates and develops commercial opportunities for research conducted at the University.
