Welcome to the alumni network

As a University of East London Graduate, you are now part of our Alumni Network. You can call on this vibrant community to open up new opportunities and to help you grow as an individual.

Even though you have completed your studies, we're still here to help – from offering vital employment skills, to empowering you to set up your own business. The Alumni team will keep you in the loop with regular newsletters and magazines as well as invitations to networking and social events. We will connect you to people within the university who are best placed to provide you with the tailored help and support you need.

This page has been designed to give you an overview of the range of services you can expect after you graduate and introducing you to the teams that will help you on your way.

For a more in-depth look at what is on offer download your graduate guide here.

The Alumni team is responsible for keeping in touch with you once you graduate and become part our Alumni Network. The team provides services and benefits that are accessible to all our graduates, making sure what we offer remains relevant and useful, no matter where you are in the world or what path you are pursuing.

As a member of the Alumni Network, you can access a number of benefits, including: free subscription to our monthly e-newsletter and yearly magazine, invitations to events, use of social media sites, and access to our dedicated networking portal – UEL Connect – as well many other special offers from us and our partner companies. There are also opportunities to play an active role in the network by becoming an Alumni Ambassador or becoming a part of the Alumni Advisory Board.


The Career Zone supports students and graduates to achieve their career goals. We provide a support network that enables you to grow and develop from your first few weeks beyond university through to employment. We’ll support you to stay on track, succeed academically and secure graduate level employment and/or further study. Alumni have limitless access to Career Zone services after graduating. There, you can call on one-to-one career coaching, professional mentoring programmes and employer events, including careers fairs, networking, and seminars presented by our career coaches and industry professionals.


UEL Volunteering works with local organisations to provide a range of volunteering opportunities to UEL students and graduates. The team also holds workshops and presentations highlighting the benefits of volunteering. These also support students and graduates to design and deliver community-based projects. Students and alumni are guided to identify, apply for and complete their volunteering roles.


UEL Enterprise & Entrepreneurship is a dedicated in-house team which works with students and graduates to develop their entrepreneurial knowledge and skills to enable them to launch and grow their own businesses. We deliver a range of activities throughout the year.
