Alumni Community

Congratulations Class of 2020, and welcome!


Upon graduating you join the University’s ever-growing alumni community of 185,000 members across 201 countries worldwide.

But what does that mean for you?

It means that you now belong to an engaged network of fellow alumni, with access to events, opportunities and communications to maintain your connection with Leicester.

When you take off your graduation robes at the end of the day, it doesn’t mean that your university journey has come to an end; it signals the start of an exciting new chapter!

The Alumni Engagement Team are here to help you make connections and stay in touch. To make the most of your alumni benefits, please fill out a ‘Stay in Touch’ form on the University website, so we can keep you up to date on all the opportunities open to the Leicester alumni community. Once we have this, you can expect to receive communications such as the annual Gryphon alumni magazine, the quarterly Paternoster e-newsletter, and exclusive event invitations.

As you start your new chapter, don’t forget that careers advice is always on hand through the Career Development Service.

As a memento of your special day you will receive an email from the Alumni Engagement Team with a video clip of the moment you graduate. We hope you will proudly share this with your family and friends and across social media in celebration of your wonderful achievement.

Our team would love to hear from you, so feel free to get in touch at any time. Stay in the loop by following all of our social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. Tag us in your graduation pictures, and don’t forget to use the hashtag #LeicesterGrad

Congratulations, and welcome to the alumni family!

Stay in touch!
