Staying Connected
The connections you make at university, and the friendships your forge, can last for the rest of your life. We're always delighted to meet groups of friends who have known each other since their first lectures, or first rooms in halls - whether that was 5, 15 or 50 years ago. But once you leave, we're here to help you make the most of other connections - to graduates in the same field, on the same career path, or simply in the same country. Our alumni e-newsletter is one way for us to stay connected with you, and to give you a taste of the opportunities available to you, at whatever stage of life - or work - you may find yourself.
