NUA Alumni

Our former students are the University’s most important ambassadors.

All students automatically become members of the Alumni Network upon graduation. There are a number of ways in which you can remain a member of the NUA community and stay connected with the University and other graduates.

All former students including from Great Yarmouth College of Art and Design are welcome to join the Alumni network.

The Alumni Network

There are many benefits to being a member of the Alumni Network including:

  • Careers Advice Appointments and Workshops
    NUA graduates can continue to access careers advice after graduation. To make an appointment, please contact the Careers Adviser at careers@nua.ac.uk.
  • Beyond
    Published twice a year, Beyond – the Magazine for alumni and friends of Norwich brings you up-to-date news and developments from the University as well as news on other graduates.
  • Reunions
    In addition to organised events and reunions, if you would like to organise your own get-together we can help you find a venue and accommodation in the city. We can also forward invites to lost friends on your behalf and publicise the event for you. In return we would love to hear how the event went and receive photos for our Facebook page and Beyond.
  • Further Study at NUA
    If you are thinking of continuing your studies or furthering your career with an MA, all NUA graduates receive a £500 bursary on course fees for all taught MA degrees. Find out more about Postgraduate courses on our MA pages or come along to one of our Open Days.

Events and Networking

Alumni events are a great way to meet up with old friends and find out about developments taking place at the University. Events include pub nights, networking, reunions and the annual Degree Shows.
