What does Alumni mean?

An alumnus (m), alumna (f) or alumni (pl) means a graduate, former student or staff member of a specific school, college or university.


Whether you've just graduated or have been away from us for a while, the University's Alumni and Development team aims to keep the alumni community connected to the institution via a programme of events, reunions and networking opportunities. As a graduate, you are automatically a member of the community and membership is FREE.
