International Alumni Associations

Turkey alumni groupWe’re keen to set up international alumni associations in selected countries which will provide alumni with regular social and professional networking opportunities. Associations are groups of alumni who regularly communicate, meet, and organise activities. They also raise awareness of the University and promote goodwill among alumni. At the backbone of this network are dedicated individuals who give their time and skills locally to support alumni and promote the University.

If you are keen to set up an association in your country, we would love to hear from you! Please contact us with a written proposal outlining the following:

  • objectives of the association
  • proposed activities
  • business model and sustainability

If you are a Henley Business School, Henley MBA, Real Estate and Planning, or an ICMA Centre alumnus, you can join their programme specific alumni communities, too.

Support

We offer a variety of services to help you get in touch with local alumni, to set up and run networks and events, or to get involved with volunteering opportunities. Contact the International Alumni Manager for more information.
