Alumni

The School of Government and Society is proud of all of its students and alumni. Via the University's Development and Alumni Office, we hope to keep in touch with all of our alumni post-graduation, to learn of their many successes and to continue to share our research successes and campus developments.

The Birmingham Magazine, Alumni Newsletter and monthly email newsletter help to keep our alumni up to date with all of the latest University and alumni news while our wide-ranging alumni events programme will provide opportunities to catch up with old friends or make new professional contacts.

your.bham, our online alumni community, is another great way to keep in touch with the University and fellow classmates. On the site, alumni can contact friends, upload their latest news, view and post job opportunities and sign up for a Birmingham email forwarding address. They can also learn more about our exclusive benefits including support and advice, a wide range of discounts and membership of our many alumni groups. Registration is available via the alumni section.

#AskAnAlum - What's it like to study at Birmingham?

To give you an idea of what it’s like to study in the Department of Political Science and International Studies we are running two live twitter chats for offer holders over the next two weeks. These chats will give you the opportunity to ask three of our most recent graduates about their experiences in the department and university life in general.
