Alumni Services


The digital newsletter for Edinburgh graduates.

Enlightened alumni newsletter

Enlightened features news about your fellow graduates, in-depth features about the alumni community and the University, as well as links to our regular content, including profiles, the Alumni Bookshelf, and Alumni in History. It's always topical and creates a coversation between the University and its alumni.

Enlightened is currently published on a monthly basis.


You can receive Enlightened if you have graduated from the University of Edinburgh.
