Our global alumni community
Published on 17 July 2020
Each year, the University has the pleasure of welcoming another cohort of graduates to our ever-expanding global alumni community
Our alumni can be found in over 200 countries, pursuing an extraordinary variety of endeavours and are united through their shared connection to the University of Dundee.
This shared connection is just one of the many benefits that come with being part of our alumni community and is strengthened through our alumni groups and networks, across the world, which many of our alumni are a part of.
If you would like to be connected to one of our alumni groups or networks, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Our alumni give back their time to our University and its students in so many ways. Whether that is sharing their story to inspire prospective students, offering internships or work experience to current students or directing students and families at Open Days.
Jack and Jacqueline, who are regular volunteers, gave back their time by speaking to prospective students at an event in Sanya, China.

Launch of the Global Alumni Ambassador Scheme
It is no secret that our alumni are among the University’s best ambassadors, helping to enhance the reputation of the University across the world. In May of this year, we launched the Global Alumni Ambassador Scheme through which our graduates are selected as ambassadors to help with in-country and regional activity. This activity includes speaking to prospective students, giving career support to current students, connecting us with industry and partnership opportunities and driving alumni activity forward.
Our alumni ambassadors can be found in Ghana, the UK, Hong Kong and Singapore among other countries.
Our Alumni Ambassadors have been supporting recruitment and marketing colleagues across the globe with a successful ‘Alumni to Parent Q&A Session: A graduate's guide to studying and living in Dundee for parents and carers’ event in South-East Asia. Alumnus, Professor Pon Poh Hsu, attended this Q&A session and spoke to parents about his experience in Dundee.
Here he explains why he became an Alumni Ambassador for the University in Singapore:
