Join one of our alumni clubs

We have alumni clubs in a number of countries across the world. Each club is run by alumni volunteers, supported by our alumni team. They hold networking and social events throughout the year and have social media groups for communication between group members.

Help us expand our network of clubs

We regularly hold events around the world but we are keen to increase our programme of events. One way to achieve this is to expand our network of alumni clubs but we need your support to make this possible. Therefore, if you are interested in volunteering to expand our network, please email alumni@surrey.ac.uk for further information.

Attend an international event

Explore our international events programme for details on how to connect with Surrey alumni in your country, whether through reunions, guest lectures, receptions to welcome prospective students, British Council events and other gatherings.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our events are currently postponed but we will update the list as soon as we can.

How you can help us

The support we receive from our international alumni and partners plays a critical role in Surrey’s development and global outreach and in maintaining our reputation as a leading institution. Our alumni who support via donations, volunteering time and expertise, or providing opportunities for Professional Training placements really do make a big difference.

There are a number of ways you can help us in your country:    

Spread the word to future students

    It is a big decision to travel to the UK to study, so international students and their parents really value speaking to those who have already experienced it.

    We are very grateful for alumni who can spare a few hours to join the recruitment team at events outside of the UK and inspire more students to study at the University. 

    We also host a number of dedicated prospective student and alumni events across China, Far East Asia and the USA where prospective students can meet our graduates and hear more about their life at Surrey.

      We are very proud of our graduates, and enjoy hearing about your careers and lives since graduating, as well as your favourite memories of Surrey.

      Profiles are a fantastic way of giving prospective students a flavour of life at our University and helping them understand where their Surrey degree may lead. Why not tell us your story by submitting a graduate profile:

      Help current students meet their potential

      Surrey placement students are considered among the best and most sought-after in the UK, offering many great skills to employers.

      The University is committed to Professional Training and the experience our graduates gain from their placements undoubtedly contributes to Surrey being consistently well-ranked in graduate employment league tables.  The placement year gives students a taste of life in a work environment and the opportunity to put into practice the theory they have learnt on their undergraduate course.

      An international work placement obviously also offers huge value in terms of cultural exchange and experiences. Please email alumni@surrey.ac.uk if your company would be interested in entering into a mutually beneficial partnership and employing a Surrey student for their placement year.

      You can make a significant and lasting difference to the lives of current and future students at Surrey by making a donation. Any gift, large or small, is gratefully received and will contribute directly to ensuring the University continues to thrive.

      Help us build our international programme

      We truly value the generosity of alumni who can provide a complimentary venue, preferential rates or sponsorship for one of our official alumni reunions. If you can assist us in this way, or would like to discuss sponsorship opportunities further, then please contact us on alumni@surrey.ac.uk
