Exeter China Alumni Association (ECAA)

The Exeter China Alumni Association (ECAA) is committing to build up an alumni network, create sense of belonging for Chinses alumni, and strengthen life-long relationship between Chinese alumni and the University of Exeter. All events based in mainland China should be organised and leading by ECAA, which is the ONLY official alumni organisation of the University of Exeter. We are also carrying the mission to offer post-graduation service, including providing information exchanging platform, networking, and career development support. Read more about us via the welcome message and a letter from President of the ECAA.

The ECAA is composed of the president, committee, senior alumni advisory team, volunteers, and members. There are six departments under parallel management across the country, including secretary department, activity department, overseas contact, asset management department, media department and membership department. The committees update every year. Please click here to view the latest list of the current ECAA committees and volunteers.

ECAA's goals are to:

  • encourage a lifelong relationship between alumni and the University of Exeter
  • engage alumni’s involvement with the university both online and offline (through social activities, events, volunteering, and interacting on social media)
  • support alumni in professional development regarding to employability
  • develop and promote the University of Exeter 'brand' in China
  • provide advice, support, and guidance to current and prospective students

Over the past ten years, the ECAA organised over 200 events to answer freshers’ questions about studying abroad, help graduates with job hunting. We invite senior alumni to share their experience and advice about how to settle down as an oversea student and their career development. We also share recruitment information and job fairs on our official accounts to help alumni in their job searching and career development.

With the outbreak of the pandemic, the ECAA always served as a bridge connecting with alumni from all over the word. When our motherland needed help, the alumni overseas actively looked for resources and ways to transport materials back to the country as much as possible. In turn, when the Chinese students in the UK were short of epidemic prevention materials, the alumni tried their best to seek and donate the materials. We delivered batches of material to the students and the alumni in the UK through all possible channels. The ECAA has always been concerned about the students and the alumni and strived to help and support them.

How to join

In the premise of abiding by the membership and volunteer regulations, all graduates are the member of the ECAA. All the senior alumni are waiting to welcome and support you after your graduation. In addition to face-to-face offline events, we do work to keep our alumni abreast of news and information of the alumni community on various social media. We are looking forward to forming a strong network that everyone helps and supports each other, just like a family.
