IDD 10 year reunion: September 2018

2008: IDD Students

In September, a group of 16 former IDD students gathered at the University of Birmingham for a 10 year anniversary weekend. For most people, it was the first time they'd seen each other since graduating in the summer of 2008.

The group travelled from across the UK and Europe for the occasion, with one former student flying in from Berlin and another from Oslo. The reunion started with a Mexican meal in the city centre on the Friday evening, before the group met up again on Saturday morning for a tour of the much-changed campus - although we were pleased to see our beloved Priorsfield hadn't altered too much! Saturday evening saw the reminiscing move to the pub, with an evening in the Brewdog brewery, before the group said goodbye after a tour of the city centre and an alfresco brunch on the canal.

The former students have gone on to work in a wide range of fields, from international development and mission work, to teaching, fundraising, research and advocacy work. It was great to all get together and explore our old haunts and catch up on a decade's worth of news. We look forward to the next gathering in 2028!
