UEA Global Gathering UEA Global Gathering

Each year, at the end of September, UEA alumni around the world get together to celebrate the University's anniversary on or around the 29th September.

Planning is already underway for our 2018 events, and this year we hope to have alumni celebrating from Australia to Zimbabwe! Global Gatherings can be as formal or informal as you like, and come in all shapes and sizes, from drinks or dinner, to a theme park, or even a day of charity or voluntary work in your community. The beauty of Global Gatherings is that no two events are the same! 

So far events for 2018 are planned in the following locations:

  • Buenos Aires - Argentina
  • Brisbane - Australia
  • Canberra - Australia
  • Melbourne - Australia
  • Perth - Australia
  • Yaoundé - Cameroon 
  • East Japan - Japan
  • West Japan - Japan
  • Legos - Nigeria
  • Manilla - Philippines
  • Kandy - Sri Lanka
  • London - UK
  • Newark - UK
  • Norwich - UK
  • Rochester - UK
  • Atlanta - USA
  • Houston - USA
  • New York - USA
  • Washington DC - USA

There's no such thing as too small for a reunion – even if it’s just two of you! If you’re with another UEA graduate on 29 September we’d love to hear from you. Post your photos using ‪#‎UEAGG2018‬ or email them in to us at alumni@uea.ac.uk and let us know what you’re doing on UEA’s birthday!

Why not take a look at some of the photos from last year’s reunions to get inspired?
