Alumni networks

We help alumni connect with others in their area or who share similar interests, and support students and alumni to network professionally.

We have established the following specific alumni networks and groups to support you throughout your life and career.

Engaging, inspiring and supporting female graduates.

Founded by a group of Exeter alumnae in London, the Alumnae Group or Exe-X helps tackle the specific challenges facing women in their careers. Through our events and activities we encourage alumnae to support each other in personal and professional development and we help involve alumnae in the life of the University.

All female Exeter graduates are invited to be a part of the Alumnae Group and are warmly welcomed to all of our events, as are female students and university staff.

Founded by a group of Exeter alumnae (female graduates) the South West Alumnae Group aims to help to connect female graduates in the South West and provide opportunities for alumnae to meet and network.

The Group runs a diverse range of regular events on the first Tuesday of every month. Previous events have included tours of the Exeter Campus, speaker events, networking and visits to the Northcott theatre.

The Group provides a brilliant way for local female alumni to meet graduates from many different careers and disciplines, expanding their social and professional networks. It also enables graduates to hear the latest news from the university and stay connected to Exeter. The committee is made up of alumnae volunteers and supported by the alumni office in the University.

The EUC is an independent, friendly club for alumni, graduates and retired staff of Exeter University and their families. This includes those who have studied or worked on the Streatham, St Luke’s, Penryn and Truro Campuses, the former Camborne School of Mines, the Medical School and the (pre 1955) University College of the South West of England.

The Club offers a range of social and cultural activities for members and their families mainly through its branches, which are largely autonomous local groups.

Branches are based across the country and include:

Each local branch puts together a programme of events led by individual volunteers. The range is vast, reflecting members' interests. Any member is free to offer to host or organise an event. Clubs charge a small annual membership fee and each regional Branch has a small Committee.

Main aims

  • To further the interests and well-being of the University
  • To promote links with the University
  • Work with the Alumni Office, keeping in touch with Exeter graduates
  • Organise social events across the country for graduates and their families.

You can subscribe to Branch Lines, EUC’s quarterly newsletter, to keep up-to-date with features on some of the past social activities throughout the year.

To find out more about EUC and club branch events please visit the EUC website.

Please note that the EUC group runs independently of the university and collects and manages its own data.

The Alumni Network Group Committee (otherwise known as ANG) was formed in 2008 and is chaired by Stephen Edge, Hon LLD (Law, 1972; Hon LLD, 2012), Corporate Tax Partner – Slaughter and May. The main purpose of the group is to advise and take a lead role in helping the University build lifelong relationships with alumni, to promote alumni engagement with the University and fellow alumni, and to give alumni the opportunity to share their views with the University. The Alumni Network Group Committee provides an informal ‘sounding board’ for the Vice-Chancellor and senior management and is consulted on strategic issues on an ad-hoc basis as individual members or as a collective Group.

The CSM Association is the alumni network for the Camborne School of Mines, and was formed in 1989 to foster comradeship between former students of CSM, to represent their views, promote their interests and maintain the identity of the school.
