Hello and welcome to our January newsletter.

Happy New Year to all our graduates, friends and supporters across the world.

Last year life and work turned very quickly towards the online world. With this in mind I am delighted to announce that we have now launched our new online global graduate network, UU Connects!

With over 210,000 graduates across the world we felt it was more important than ever to offer you the opportunity to connect and network with each other (and the University), and provide a platform which can connect and inspire our students and recent graduates. The network allows you to find support and to support others as we navigate this new world.

So whether you’re a graduate, friend or supporter, UU Connects allows you to:

  • Connect: Find, connect and reminisce with fellow graduates of UU right across the world to see what they have been up to and to get in touch.
  • Network: Become part of the UU Connects global community and expand your professional network.
  • Inspire (and be inspired): Inspire current students and fellow graduates by volunteering your time, signing up as a mentor or offering employment opportunities. You can even seek out a mentor for yourself!

Join now and explore all the benefits such as -

  • Job vacancies: search for new opportunities in your area or industry or post if your company is hiring.
  • Business directory: promote your business and any special discounts/offers for the UU Connects network.
  • Join groups: create or join a group based on a specific topic, location, subject or theme. Start conversations and post information relevant to the group.
  • Find events: see what exciting programmes and activities UU is hosting.

In the first few days of launch we have several hundred new members – become an active member on UU Connects today and join our vibrant community!

Warmest wishes,
