Alumni achievements

On the 18th September 1967, 164 undergraduate students and 31 postgraduates began their courses at the new Pathfoot Building. The following year, the University celebrated with a small group of alumni at the inaugural graduation ceremony.

Since then, the University's alumni community has grown to include over 80,000 people, in 170 countries. Throughout 2017 we profiled successful and influential people within that community.
