A global community of alumni
Connecting you after graduation
Our extraordinary alumni, with their bold, brilliant and inquisitive minds, go on to discover and achieve remarkable things across the globe. We count Nobel Prize winners, poets, novelists, BAFTA winners, Olympians, inventors and Turner Prize-winning artists among our graduates.
Our alumni network reaches across the world
Over 300,000 UCL alumni live in more than 190 countries worldwide and we have groups of alumni volunteers in over 50 countries across the globe.
There are dedicated industry networks and international groups from Japan to the USA – making it easy to maintain friendships and make new connections.
If you're looking to get in touch with your fellow graduates in the UK or overseas, we can help you organise reunions or recommend a volunteer alumni group in your area.
These groups organise regular get-togethers, including special 'send-off' and 'welcome back' events either side of your degree.
We support your career after graduation
Wherever life takes you after graduation, UCL's global community will be there to support you.
From international clubs to industry networks, professional development programmes and lifelong library access, there's no shortage of ways to stay connected.
Through our community of alumni volunteers, you'll have access to:
- free online careers mentoring
- UCL's award-winning professional networking events
- an excellent jobs board, event information and entry to industry and international networks
- your UCL virtual network – the UCL LinkedIn Alumni Group now has over 5,000 members and you can connect with alumni on Facebook and Twitter.
We provide lifelong benefits for our alumni
All our alumni are entitled to receive a free benefits card which provides you with discounts for London travel and accommodation, and gives you continued access to UCL's bars and libraries.
We like to keep our alumni up-to-date with all our news through regular e-newsletters and the annual alumni magazine Portico. We'll also keep you informed about our various campaigns, raising money in support of UCL's most significant priorities and engaging our global communiity with UCL students, staff and projects.
Many student societies and departments organise their own events where alumni speak about careers, lead workshops, judge student competitions and even take part in an annual sports battle.
UCL is a hard place to leave but our alumni are always welcomed back!
