Host an event Host an event

There are plenty of formal or informal events our alumni are able to organise on behalf of the University.


Reunions are a great way to satisfy your curiosity about old friends, extend your professional network and meet new and interesting people. They can also be a great way to support UEA. We want always to make sure that you continue to benefit from the University and its global network even after your graduation. A reunion can be a great place for networking, be it socially or for your career.

The alumni team is here to support you and help you organise a great reunion.

Global Gathering

Celebrate UEA’s birthday wherever you are. Every year at the end of September our alumni meet all around the world to celebrate their time at UEA.

Do you want to take part?

Find and contact the Global Gathering host in your country. And if there is no Global Gathering in your area? Time to organise yours! Declare your interest and we are here to support you with the organisation of the event.

For more information, contact Will Stileman (Global Alumni Officer) or check out our 'how to' guide for hosting an event.

Pre-departure events

Would you like to help students from your home country feel supported and confident about their new life in Norwich? Take part in a pre-departure event with the help of our international office. Here will be able to meet the next generation of UEA, answer their last minute enquiries and excite them about the new experience waiting for them at UEA.

‘Welcome Back’ events

Life after university and especially in its beginning can be quite challenging for a recent graduate. ‘Welcome Back’ events are a great opportunity to welcome back in their country alumni who have recently graduated from UEA and make them feel supported and more ready for their life after University.  Networking, career opportunities and the establishment of stronger relations between recent and seasoned alumni are only some of the events’ benefits.

Average time commitment:  10-30 hours per year
