Alumni reunions and networks

Our global network of alumni has more than 12,000 members across over 100 countries.

We try to meet as many alumni as possible when travelling around the world. Places we have visited recently include Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing, Lagos, Taiwan, New Delhi and Mumbai.

We hold regular 6-monthly events in the UK that take place in London and The North.

Wherever we are across the globe, we will invite you to the nearest alumni meet-up.
