Vanbrugh Post-50 

Whether you are a recent graduate wishing to continue your association with the College, or one of our earliest students from when the College first opened its doors, we are always pleased to hear from our alumni, and their successes and we welcome their involvement with the Vanbrugh community.

Get Involved

Vanbrugh College has a number of ways you can get involved.  For example, giving some of your time to mentor our students or to provide extra-curricular classes and opportunities for our community.  Here are some ideas below:

  • Do you teach an instrument? If so, join Vanbrugh Rocks and we can advertise to our students.
  • Do you have experience with studio engineering and recording? If so, we have students wanting to record their bands and learn from those with experience.
  • Do you have an old instrument in the attic that you would like to loan or gift to Vanbrugh's Instrument Lending Library, to provide opportunities for students without access to musical instruments to learn and play.
  • If you are local to York do you have access to a minibus and would you be willing to provide transport to days out and events?

If you live further afield we also have two projects main funds that you can donate to either regularly or as a one-off.  These are:

  • Vanbrugh College Fund - Development: Improving facilities and amenities to support our students.  For example, did you know that Vanbrugh's music practice space 'The Garage' was largely created with Alumni Funds.
  • Vanbrugh College Fund - Student Bursaries: This includes Vanbrugh's Ambassador Program as well as providing a fund that student can apply to through the Head of College for assistance in supporting their studies and personal development.
