International Alumni 
International Alumni

Wherever you are in the world, as our former students, you are important to us.

Your link to other alumni is simple – your shared experience of your time with us, either in Cardiff, or at one of our partner institutions. For the year or more that you studied here, it was the focus of your life. But for our international students, who have since returned home, that may now seem like a long way away.

We’d like to bring the university closer to you.

We are currently growing our network of International Alumni Ambassadors to help develop our wider network of alumni overseas. Working with the Alumni Office and the International Office, these volunteer Alumni Ambassadors will become a key local point of contact for alumni. They will be responsible for local networking events, social gatherings, and may also help with student recruitment.

Check out if there is an Alumni Ambassador near you!

If there is no ambassador currently representing your area, then do please think about applying. International Alumni Ambassadors need to be outgoing, sociable, organised and have a high regard for your time here. If you already meet up with your contemporaries from your year - if you've recruited a few to work with you, or have family members who came to study with us - then maybe you are already doing the job of Alumni Ambassador!

If you are interested in applying to be an Alumni Ambassador for your home country, or for a city or region within that country, please contact the Alumni Office for an application form*.

You can call on +44 2920 201590 (8.30am - 5pm GMT, Monday to Friday), or email  

*The role of an Alumni Ambassador is very demanding and requires a significant level of commitment. The duration of an individual’s ambassador role can be assessed on an individual basis but will be for a minimum term of six months, with a guideline of 18 months total, although this will be reviewed on a regular basis. It is therefore advisable to carefully consider the commitment you are able to make before applying.
