Upcoming events for alumni

We are always keen to meet up with our alumni. The Alumni Association plans a number of special events throughout the year - from open days on campus to networking events both in the UK and
around the world.

Of course, you don't have to wait for us. Why not arrange your own class reunion? We can help you
trace your 'old' friends and give advice on arranging your event. Read news from other events and reunions 
to pick up ideas for your own, and read our tips on planning an event. Send details of forthcoming events to alumni@ntu.ac.uk and we'll promote them here.
