Global Alumni Gathering
Taking Birmingham to the world
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 and around 25 May 2018.
Last year the Global Alumni Gathering saw more than 200 alumni take part in 27 events across 20 countries.
We had events in: Nigeria, Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Greece, Azerbaijan, Spain, Canada, China, Qatar, Taiwan, Mexico, India, USA, Singapore, Australia, South Africa, UAE and Iran.
With your help we can make 2018 bigger and better than ever!
