What is AlumNet?
AlumNet is a website which helps Buckingham alumni to stay in touch with the University and with each
other. It also allows students approaching graduation to get involved with the alumni community and to
build relationships which will help them along their chosen career path. Our diverse alumni body
stretches around the globe and so AlumNet is the perfect place for its members to come together for
business and pleasure.
Why has AlumNet changed?
On 23 February 2004 we re-launched AlumNet with a new look and a host of new features. This was in
response to suggestions from our alumni who were keen to use AlumNet for careers networking and to make
social contacts. Building on their ideas, and with input from our Publicity, Web, Marketing and Careers
staff, we have created a site which we hope exceeds their expectations. If you have any comments about
AlumNet please contact
Am I eligible to become a member of AlumNet?
You can join AlumNet if you are an alumnus (graduate) of the University of Buckingham or if you are a
final year student at Buckingham.
I'm a student member of AlumNet. Why can't I access all the pages on AlumNet?
Student members of AlumNet can access more pages than the general public but do not have access to as
many pages as alumni. The pages you don't have access to are not yet relevant to you. Don't worry -
you'll become a fully fledged alumni member when you graduate.
What are the benefits of joining AlumNet?
Members of AlumNet enjoy the following:
- Careers advice from the University's Careers Officers.
- The chance to become a careers mentor to a younger AlumNet member or to
find a mentor for yourself.
- Publicity for your business in the “Featured Business”
- The opportunity to rekindle old friendships through the alumni search
- Access to information about potential business contacts who are all
- An all-new discussion board.
- Involvement in a diverse community of friendly, international people who may well become close
friends or valuable business associates.

Questions about security and privacy
If I join AlumNet will other members be able to find out all my details?

about yourself (such as details of your career or business). In addition to this you can select a
privacy level that suits you. If you do not want other alumni to be able
to contact you except through the Alumni Office you can choose the highest
