Alumni Association

Graduates of the University of Bradford belong to an international community of more than 135,000 alumni spanning over 175 countries. This incredible network, the Bradford Alumni Association, represents a powerful force for the good of the University and for alumni. 

The AA (Alumni Association), here to support and inspire you socially and professionally, is led by an elected chair and a group of committed alumni volunteers, forming an Executive Committee which provides a voice for the Bradford alumni community whilst promoting ongoing connections between graduates, and with the University.

We support the University’s Alumni Office to maintain contact with alumni, to organise events and activities, and to promote opportunities for Braduates to remain engaged and be part of the University’s success. We warmly encourage you to keep in touch with your alma mater by updating your details on the Bradford Connect Alumni Portal.
