Alumni Benefits

Benefits for Alumni

Overview

Our first priority in the global alumni programme is to offer exclusive benefits and services for our students and graduates, enabling personal and professional development.

Keeping in touch

Get involved in your nearest alumni branch. Attending their events is an excellent way to network with other Business School and University alumni.

We have a variety of social media groups that you can join. Find us on Facebook and LinkedIn

Graduate Connections is an online networking tool, brought to you by the Careers Service, which allows you to get in touch directly with graduates working in a diverse range of careers and organisations. 

Our dedicated Business School alumni newsletter, Alumni Matters, is delivered directly to your inbox as a graduate of the school. It is published three times a year. If you have graduated, but are not receiving Alumni Matters, let us know.

Keep up to date with benefits and services available to all Newcastle alumni on the Alumni and Supporters website

Services and facilities

Our alumni continue to have access to the University's Careers Service for three years after graduation.

There are many opportunities for continuing professional development available to you as a Newcastle graduate.

Need a meeting room or events/conference space with state of the art AV capabilities? Space in the Business School is available to alumni free of charge. Terms and conditions apply. Email the events team to discuss your requirements.

Through the Student Progress service you can order a replacement copy of your transcript or degree certificate.

Feedback

To give us any feedback about the benefits and services you feel we should offer, email us.

Careers Services

The University's award winning Careers Service exists to help you make the most of your unique skills and experiences. Whether you are seeking a graduate career, going on to further study or starting your own business, a range of support is available to help you realise your potential while you are studying and for up to three years after you have graduated.
