The British Council has initiated a new global network, Alumni UK, for people from around the world who have studied in the UK as overseas students.

Through the initiative, it said all alumni could grow their worldwide professional network, continue learning and sharing experience and expertise with others and celebrate their connections to the UK and keep up to date.

Tolu Adewara, Project Officer (Higher Education) for the British Council, called on all UK Alumni to join in building the largest UK alumni community, connect people who studied at any UK university and find out how Alumni UK can help achieve their goals.

She said UK alumni are among the most employable graduates in the world and 38 per cent of Nobel laureates who studied abroad did so in the UK.

She said reasons to join include the opportunity to attend exclusive industry events and masterclasses, keep learning to advance her career, find new opportunities, showcase skills on a global stage, connect with other UK alumni and build a vast network.

According to Mofoluwake Fadare, Senior Evaluation Adviser at the British Council, “The programme offers partnership.

Alumni will be supported with their personal and professional development, and with making a positive contribution to the economic and social prosperity of their home countries. It will bring significant benefits to the UK through developing and supporting sustainable economic, scientific and cultural relationships and networks.”

While all international UK alumni from any UK university, on any course, in any year are encouraged to join, they need to have spent at least one term at a UK higher education institution enrolled on a credit-bearing course. This includes transnational or online education.
