Graduating from NUA doesn’t mean leaving us behind. Wherever you are in the world, NUA will always be your creative home and a place you can call upon to help support you on your journey.
Phil Carter of Carter Wong says that the experience of visiting NUA is ‘not unlike coming home’ – a feeling shared by many of those whose creative development took shape here.
Whether it was called NUA, NUCA, Great Yarmouth School of Art of Design or Norwich School of Art when you were with us, the essence of this very special place, devoted to creative education in all its forms, is stronger than ever, and we value you as an important part of our graduate community.
Getting involved in the alumni community can be as simple as letting us know what you are doing now, and hearing our latest news. But we are also keen to support and grow your creative network, to help you in your creative career or start-up, and to involve you in active debate and discussion.
The University supports the NUA Alumni Community by serving as the central hub and conduit for creative thinking. Being part of NUA means belonging to a dynamic creative community that endures beyond the years of your study.
We are NUA, and so are you.
Careers advice appointments and workshops
NUA graduates can continue to access free careers advice after graduation. Whether you’re looking to write a killer CV, learn interview techniques to help you land your dream job, find out what creative employers are really looking for or uncover the latest job opportunities in the creative industries, please make an appointment with our Employability Advisor, Sebastian Owen via email@example.com to find out how we can help.
We love to catch up with alumni at the reunions and events we organise for NUA graduates. We’re also happy to help alumni organising their own reunions find venues and accommodation in the city. We can even forward invites to lost friends on your behalf and help publicise your event. Just don’t forget to send us some photos for our Facebook page!
