London Alumni Committee

The Plymouth University London Alumni Committee launched the London Alumni Network in 2017. The committee has established a thriving network of Plymouth graduates in London, which creates opportunities for alumni to engage with each other, the University and our students.

During 2017 the Committee organised three successful events, including a networking event and a quiz, you can view the pictures of these events on our Facebook page or our website.

The next event in London will be held on 6 March 2018 and you can book your place now.

To make sure that you hear about our next event please ensure that we have your current personal email address by emailing alumni@plymouth.ac.uk or log into Plymouth Connect  and update your details.
