Stay connected with BU

Register with the Alumni Association

Current students

Register with your Alumni Association before you graduate

Signing up to our alumni network before you finish your studies is the best way to stay connected. Recent changes to data protection regulations mean that we need your permission to keep in touch once you’ve left university. By signing up before you go, you can ensure that you receive alumni news, event invitations and details of exclusive benefits.

Register via our alumni details form, and we will add you to our database. We will get in touch to let you know that we’ve received your registration but won’t start sending you alumni communications until after you graduate.

Graduate Outcomes survey

Graduate Outcomes is a national survey of graduates which takes place 15 months after you complete your studies.

All graduates who complete a course will be asked to take part in the survey, which is carried out by an independent organisation. You will be contacted by email or phone and asked about your employment, as well as for your views on your studies.

The results will be used to help current and future students gain an insight into future career destinations and to help BU evaluate and promote its courses. The survey is also of national significance as it allows policymakers, charities, researchers and others to understand the state of the graduate labour market.

Part of our responsibilities is to provide accurate contact details for our graduates. Please take a few minutes to update your details via our online form. You can also use this form to opt-in to receiving communications from the BU Alumni Association, but if you would rather not then simply leave these sections blank and just update your contact details on the first page.

The survey is owned by HESA, the Higher Education Statistics Agency, who have published more information for students as well as guidance on how your contact details will be used.
