What Are Alumni Associations?

‌The large majority of our alumni are more than happy to maintain their links with Glasgow following graduation. There are no rules for how our Associations operate – they all work in their own unique way, bringing our alumni together and supporting the University. Our Alumni Associations are a vital part of the University’s global profile and:

  • Provide opportunities for our alumni to keep in touch with one another and the University
  • Support new alumni and create new friendships
  • Provide fun and enjoyable social opportunities
  • Offer valuable business and academic networking opportunities to other alumni and for the University

To find out if there's an Alumni Association in your area, check our Alumni Associations Map.

For the first time our Associations will be able to take part in our new and exciting Alumni Associations Scheme. The Scheme offers our Associations the chance to earn points for activities they organise, competing to win the award for the University’s Alumni Association of the Year. See the Suggested Activity & Engagement for more information on the Scheme and how to start collecting points for your Association!
