Whether you graduated last year or decades ago, we're here to help you stay connected!

Welcome to AUB Alumni!

AUB Alumni is a dedicated platform that brings together all of our graduates, past and present, to share exciting news, features, discussions, careers in the creative arts and more.

You’ll discover how our graduates are leading the way in creative roles across a diverse range of sectors, including architecture, science, media and design. You’ll also be able to reach out to people you studied alongside – and people you didn’t – to form professional and personal connections through your desire to be a part of our graduate community.

We believe that our connection with you continues far beyond Graduation. We want to keep in touch, share our exciting news with you, and offer you exclusive opportunities, like Q&A sessions with industry experts, competitions, and events.

Our new platform has been created to nurture these invaluable networks, forging friendships, partnerships and collaborations that continue to demonstrate AUB’s longstanding commitment and devotion to the creative arts.

What are the benefits of joining AUB Alumni?

Through AUB Alumni, you'll be able to...

  • Find fellow graduates, coursemates and AUB staff
  • Expand your own personal and professional creative networks
  • Discover exciting new job roles and careers via our dedicated jobs section
  • Share your successes, ideas, works and opportunities for fellow alumni
  • Offer to devote your time towards mentoring a recent AUB graduate
  • Interact with us through events, competitions and discussions

AUB Alumni is your one-stop shop for a variety of things. It’s home to our alumni, and will allow you to search for profiles of other AUB alumni and expand and develop your professional creative networks. You can search for jobs, get some career advice, and share exciting news on projects and events. But it’s not all about work – it also allows you to stay in touch with those friends you’ve made throughout your time at university, as people relocate for jobs or move to new countries. Perhaps you’ve lost touch with old friends and want to use the platform to search for them. AUB Alumni is your alumni community.

How to get involved with AUB Alumni

AUB Alumni is not just somewhere to go to develop and build on your creative networks; it's also a way of embracing the community. We often receive requests from our alumni asking how they can get more involved with us or our students and graduates. AUB Alumni will allow this engagement to happen on a regular basis.

If you wish to help support and offer guidance to those in the alumni community at any stage of their career, you can put yourself forward to offer the following services:

  • Mentoring
  • CV Advice
  • Portfolio Review
  • Talks
  • Workshops

Alumni seeking these services will be able to search for you and contact you in relation to the service you’re willing to offer. We know there will be times when you get too busy. Maybe a new big commission comes in. But don't worry – we understand that this happens, so you’re able to turn these services on and off at any time.

If you're someone that wants to get involved in a different way, you also have the ability to:

  • Organise Events – socials, networking
  • Set up groups
  • Blog
  • Post jobs

You also have the ability to invite your fellow graduates onto the platform if you can see they haven’t joined and send requests directly to them.

AUB Alumni is there for you. It’s your community, it will continue to grow and evolve. You are essential to bringing the community to life!

FAQs

It’s simple: it takes just a few minutes to create your profile and upload it to the AUB Alumni platform, and that’s it, you’re up and running! If you have other profiles, such as LinkedIn, you can also sync them with your profile at the same time.
