The University of Bradford has over 120,000 graduates based in more than 170 countries worldwide. We want to maintain a close relationship with alumni living and working overseas and to help them foster relationships with other graduates in their area. Our overseas alumni representatives are at the core of this work. They plan and host events for fellow alumni, serve as contact points in their area.
The International Office also has overseas representatives in many countries and these often organise alumni events, senior officer visits and meetings with alumni or request alumni to help with recruitment fairs etc.
If there doesn't appear to be an alumni representative near you, why not contact us and become one?
The British Council and other organisations overseas also provide networking opportunities for all graduates who have a degree from a UK university. A selection of these follow below.
Also mentioned in our last e-newsletter, the British Council in Ethiopia is initiating the establishment of an Alumni Association for Ethiopians who graduated from British higher education institutions. The Alumni Association is intended to serve as a networking forum for members to get connected locally and globally, interact with each other, share best practices and contribute to the development of partnerships between Ethiopia and the United Kingdom.
They are hoping to compile a contact database of graduates with first or higher degrees from UK educational institutions.
They ask if we can draw your attention to this new group and if you are interested, or require any further details, to contact them directly at:
