Alumni Services

August 2014 | Alumni Profiles

There is a distinctly Scottish feel to this month's profiles including a whisky ambassador, a Bannockburn battlemaster and an alumnus who is learning to play the clàrsach.

We are interested in the role that the University has played in your life, either directly - in terms of skills and knowledge - or indirectly, via friends, experiences or chance encounters.

Please get in touch and you and your experiences could feature on our website.
