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. Events can be as formal or informal as you wish, and the alumni office is here to offer support and publicise your reunion.



Alumni in Ghana made this fantastic video at their event last year! Photos from this year's events can be found here on our Facebook page, as well as photos from previous years. You can also see photos from last year's events here on our website.

These are some of the photos from this year's events, and a list can be found below of all the planned event locations.
