Welcome Class of 2020

It's not long until you officially become a graduate of the University of Nottingham. Soon, your real journey begins. You're heading into the world with the same confidence and curiosity that brought you to Nottingham in the first place. And you're in great company. There's a whole tribe of alumni out there, ready to welcome you with open arms. We, your Alumni team, are here to continue to fuel your learning and to help you to grow professionally and personally. On our own we can achieve a lot but when we're part of something bigger we can do so much more. Connected we thrive.

Join your alumni community 

Before you graduate, opt in to receive alumni communications to ensure that you can benefit from everything your alumni community has to offer, including exclusive careers support and events designed just for you. 

This is no ordinary graduation 

Like everything this year, graduation is a little different to normal. While we'll be inviting you back to the University for your formal graduation ceremony as soon as we can, we still want to mark Friday 24 July, the day you officially graduate with a special virtual celebration. A chance to celebrate all you have achieved with your friends and family, our global community of fellow students, teachers and staff, alumni, business partners and friends, and the whole world – for a celebration without borders

Follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter on Friday 24 July and join in the celebrations as we welcome you to your alumni community. Don't forget to perfect your pose for our Class of 2020 Yearbook on Instagram!
