Our Alumni Network

UCL History has an active alumni network which comprises more than 2,400 former students. Each year the department hosts two alumni evenings (also known as 'Lecture Parties'), which provide an opportunity for you to catch up with old friends whilst enjoying a short talk by a member of the department as well as wine and nibbles. Alumni also receive termly e-newsletters summarising relevant events which may be of interest, and key pieces of news. The department is particularly grateful to those alumni who volunteer their time to help us; to Peter Dawe for organising visits and reunions, to Neil Matthews for editing the annual magazine, to those who help provide careers advice to current students, and of course to our generous benefactors whose gifts have helped students of all backgrounds to access both undergraduate and postgraduate education.

History of St. Albans Walking Tour
