Take part in Birmingham’s biggest global alumni gathering!

To celebrate the anniversary of the University receiving Royal Assent in 1900 we are asking alumni around the world to get together to mark the occasion on or around the 25 May. 

Last year the Global Alumni Gathering saw more than 200 alumni take part in 27 events across 20 countries. Here are some of the photos. 

With your help we can make 2019 bigger and better than ever!

Host an event in your area

All our Global Alumni Gathering events are organised by alumni volunteers so if there isn't an event in your area why not be an organiser? Events can be as big or as small as you like, from informal drinks and dinners, to picnics and quiz nights. Just let us know where you would like to hold an event and we will support you by promoting the event to other alumni in your area. We'll also send you an event host resource pack prior to the event.

If you can’t make it to a Global Alumni Gathering you can still get involved

  • Follow along on social media, we’ll be sharing updates on Twitter and Facebook and Instagram
  • Send us a photograph of you by a landmark in your city and we’ll feature you in our video
  • Get together with your University friends and hold your own mini Global Alumni Gathering! Remember to share your photos with us.
