We engage our alumni through quarterly newsletters, a LinkedIn group, facebook and twitter. Alumni have the opportunity to attend exclusive networking events and also support one another in their career ambitions through sharing ideas, information and experience. There are currently 150 members in the Network.
Every year alumni attend the UP Annual Lecture and Graduation Dinner.
Engaged members are also invited to exclusive events such as meetings
with ministers, funders and an annual meeting of Ambassadors in St James
