Leeds alumni: Discover the benefits

As a Leeds graduate, you enter the next phase of a lifelong relationship with Leeds. 

Discover exactly what it means to be a valued member of the Leeds alumni community, and how to make the most of it.

Join a global network

Being a member of Leeds alumni means you can talk to alumni across the world – there are 270,000 of us, after all. There are countless ways to connect with fellow Leeds alumni wherever you, or they, might be.

  • Digital and in-person events give you an opportunity to learn from, meet and connect with those in your sector – or any area you are interested in.
  • Big Get Together events each year, virtual and in-person, connect you with fellow alumni wherever you are in the world.
  • Organise reunions and reconnect with old friends from your course, a society, or your halls. We can help you find them!
  • Joining our network of volunteers allows you to make connections with and mentor new graduates and students at the start of their careers.
    • Alternatively, for newer Leeds graduates, join the Leeds network as a mentee and learn from those who have walked this path before you.
  • The Leeds Alumni Book Club connects our book-loving alumni – you can talk about books with other alumni wherever you are in the world.
