Alumni Services

May 2013 | Alumni Profiles

There is a distinctly international flavour this month as we introduce, among others, a Swedish graduate working in Brussels, a Church of Scotland Minister residing in Portugal and a biochemist who has been honoured by both the French and Sri Lankan governments.

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.
