So what happens after graduation? Your relationship with Newman University doesn’t end when you finish your studies. All graduates of the University are welcome to become members of our free Alumni Association. To join please visit our Alumni page.

What does ‘Alumni’ mean? ‘Alumni’ is the Latin plural term for a former student of a school, college or university (‘alumnus’ being the singular).

You will also receive further discounts on campus services, invitations to events, as well as news and updates from the University, including the latest developments about our 50th anniversary celebrations in 2018.  Our Alumni Association is also a great way to keep in touch with the friends you have made during your time at the University and to network with like-minded professionals.
