UCL Alumni: Your Lifelong Community

Alexander Graham Bell. Christine Ohuruogu. Ricky Gervais. YOU.

Your relationship with UCL is lifelong and whether you have just started your studies or are about to graduate, all UCL students can benefit from being part of the alumni community during their time with us. 

With over 200,000 former students worldwide, UCL’s global alumni form a powerful network and as a UCL student you have many opportunities to engage with them while studying and after graduation.

Build your career All UCL students are invited to register for FREE access to the UCL Alumni Online Community, putting you in touch with thousands of alumni mentors worldwide. It provides an exclusive networking area where you can search the directory for potential mentors from our pool of experienced alumni, and build your personal network.

When you become alumni you can also join one of our active alumni groups to connect with your international community and special interest groups in the UK.
