Your relationship with the UK doesn’t need to end when your studies do, in fact it can last a lifetime.

Enjoy being part of a UK 'network for life'

Most UK universities run excellent alumni associations. Designed to build global communities and enable alumni around the world to share experience and expertise, university associations offer a range of services and benefits including:

  • opportunities to network and build professional and social networks
  • reunions and events held in cities around the world
  • institutional links to support career development.

The British Council also runs a number of groups around the world for UK alumni. These groups are a great way to make connections with others who have enjoyed an educational experience in the UK. Your local British Council office will be able to provide details of local groups and let you know how you can join when you graduate.

The British Council's Alumni Awards are also a fantastic opportunity for UK alumni to enhance their success and build their professional network as they progress in their careers. Held annually in countries around the world, these awards ceremonies honour leaders in their fields who have used their experience of studying at a UK university to make a positive contribution to their own communities, professions and countries.
