Our Global Network
Our International alumni team are busy working up plans for an Alumni Reception in Nigeria. Due to be held tomorrow night at the Sheraton in Lagos the event has given alumni living in the region an amazing opportunity to connect and network with fellow alumni. http://www.alumni.nottingham.ac.uk/netcommunity/page.aspx?pid=215&cid=1&ceid=561&cerid=0&cdt=05%2f09%2f2012
It got me to thinking about the extent to our global reach. It has been quoted that “Nottingham is the nearest Britain has to a truly global university.” (The Times Good University Guide, 2009) Our state of the art campuses in Nottingham, China and Malaysia mean we are accessible to so many International students, not just in the UK but across all three campuses.
Many students who return to their native countries, or find themselves living and working abroad rely on the alumni networks in their regions to keep in touch with the University and also each other. We currently have alumni networks and communities in 24 countries across the globe, working alongside the International team here in Nottingham to create exciting events and opportunities to connect.
This year we have hosted alumni events in Singapore, Mumbai, Bangalore, Jakarta, Shanghai, Beijing and New York and Delhi. Did you come to any of these events?
If you are one of our International alums keep a look out for events in your region through the website http://www.alumni.nottingham.ac.uk/NetCommunity/ as well as Facebook and Twitter.
Would you be interested in starting a network in your part of the world? Get in touch and let us know!
