International Alumni

Bangor University welcomes students from all over the world and is proud of the achievements of its international alumni. The Development and Alumni Relations Office host reunions and events around the globe and are always delighted to see so many alumni attend to catch up with each other and meet members of visiting Bangor University staff. Annual reunions are held in the Kingdom of Bahrain and China and events have been held in the USA, Greece, Singapore and Hong Kong to name but a few!

Bangor University has links with educational institutions all over the world such as Harvard University in the USA and the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance in the Kingdom of Bahrain and groups of alumni have come together in these locations to support the partnerships.

Could you support Bangor University in your home country?

Bangor University is grateful for the support of alumni volunteers in key locations around the world who take pride in their association with University and wish to help raise its profile internationally.

As a volunteer you can support Bangor University by sharing your experiences with prospective students, expanding the alumni network in your region and sharing your knowledge of your country’s life and culture.

You can assist us with events such as briefings for new students, careers events and welcome receptions for students returning to your region. You will have the opportunity to make contact with fellow alumni in your city and country for social and business networking as well as developing links with University staff visiting your region.

If you are an international alumnus and are interested in helping raise the profile of Bangor in your region, we would love to hear from you!  Please email Bethan Perkins at:

See Bangor University’s International Education Centre’s pages for more information of the work they do in your country.
