After Graduation

Welcome to Abertay's Alumni Network. One of the perks of having a degree under your belt is that you're now a member of our global community full of inspirational alumni.


What does communication look like as an Abertay Alumni?


Staying in touch  
With you When registering to graduate in absentia, there will have been the option to opt-in to hearing from the University after you leave. If you chose to stay in touch, for the most part, we’ll contact you using your personal email address (the one you registered to graduate with). Over time, keep us up to date with where your adventure is taking you. If your email or postal address change, you can let us know by completing our online form.
With Abertay As a graduate, you have a one-stop-shop email address to direct all your queries to:
With your Alumni Network Follow the Abertay Alumni Twitter account to hear about some of the great things your fellow graduates are getting up to on a day to day basis. Don’t be shy, tag us so we can share your stories too. If you’d like to tap into the wider Network at any time, you can do this by following Abertay University’s LinkedIn page and searching through the ‘Alumni’ tab. To be searchable in this way yourself, you’ll need to list Abertay University as a ‘school’ within your profile. It’s the perfect platform to build professional networks and support your career.
