Inspirational alumni in the spotlight

Inspirational alumni took centre stage at the School of Politics and International Relations alumni conference during Employability Week.

BS3R4823 The event featured a host of the School’s alumni, who returned to campus to speak to current students about their experiences at Kent and how they have progressed since graduation. The event was dubbed ‘Inspirational Alumni’ as the successes of this group of graduates and the stories that they shared during the conference will act as an inspiration to students currently studying within the School.
