The aim of the Alumni and Graduation Office is twofold.
On the alumni side, we keep our worldwide network of graduates in touch with each other, as well as with the University. We do this by producing two copies of
The Independent each year, full of stories about alumni, the University, staff and what is happening in Buckingham. We maintain contact with our alumni via monthly global
emails, regular events (many of which are organised by the Alumni Office - e.g. the year group reunions and the annual summer party, plus breakfast meetings for networking)
in the UK and overseas and visits to other countries by members of staff. Added to this, we exchange correspondence with individual graduates on a daily basis and welcome
visits if you are ever in Buckingham. We are here to help you in any way that we can and we are very grateful for the time and effort put in by so many of you in helping
our current students, visiting the University to give talks - and simply by attending events.
The graduation side deals with the organisation of the annual Graduation ceremonies held each March and also arranges special events, including the annual Convocation
for Honorary Graduands which is held in late spring / early summer. We relish this task and do hope that you have already enjoyed your own Graduation ceremony or soon will.
