Welcome to the Alumni Relations Team

The purpose of the Alumni Relations Team is to promote strong affiliation to the University amongst the alumni community (including Honorary Graduates), by engaging with individuals and groups at desired and agreeable levels, through a variety of channels, materials and events. The Alumni Office provides a range of services for alumni and, working with differnt departments and faculties across the University, seeks to develop a framework of activity focussed on building mutually benficial relationships with the University's diverse alumni community.

We aim to encourage contributions from alumni in terms of finance to support University fundraising initiatives and time/expertise to assist a range of activity taking place both on and off the campus including alumni support for marketing and recruitment, and enhancing student's experiences and employability.  

University of Bradford alumni comprise an international network of over 130,000 graduates in more than 170 countries. We proactively maintain up-to-date contact details, education and employment information (where available) for all graduates from 1966 onwards. 

Honorary Graduates

Since 1966 the University of Bradford has awarded honorary degrees to figures who have achieved distinction in their fields - through academic or professional achievement, contribution to the community, or to the University itself. We maintain a list of honorary graduates with names, contact details, year conferred and reason for the award. We also oversee a relationship programme which seeks to ensure Honorary Graduates remain connected and engaged with the University.  

Communications

Ensuring graduates stay up-to-date with the news from across the University, the Alumni Relations Team produce an annual printed publication, The Braduate magazinewhich is mailed out to UK graduates and which is also available online.

The Braduate e-newsletter is produced and circulated on a quarterly basis to over 45,000 graduates and rising year on year.

We administer the University's official Alumni Facebook Page where graduates and members of staff can become fans, post news and upload interesting photos. We also manage the University of Bradford Alumni Official LinkedIn group which allows alumni to network, connect and remain connected with the University.
