Warning: Information for alumni who have received contact from 'International Alumni Association'

We have recently become aware that a USA-based organisation known as the International Alumni Association has been contacting University of Leicester alumni, and alumni from other UK universities, offering a professional networking service for a fee.

Please note that the International Alumni Association is an independent profit-making organisation with no affiliation to the University of Leicester and it has been contacting alumni without our prior knowledge or consent. We would like to reassure our alumni that we haven’t provided this organisation with contact details and would never give out alumni contact details to other organisations without prior consent.

We would encourage our alumni not to pay the membership fee or agree to be interviewed by the International Alumni Association.

Please note that the University of Leicester already offers lifelong networking opportunities to all alumni, including professional and social events both in the UK and internationally, in particular through our alumni chapters and our new online network 'Leicester Connect' that will be available to all alumni by the end of the year.

If you have any questions or concerns about the International Alumni Association, please contact us at alumni.relations@le.ac.uk.
