Did you know that as a graduate of St Mary's, you have full access to the range of services provided by the Alumni Office? Membership is free of charge. To access these benefits, all you need to do is ensure the contact details we hold on you are up to date using our online form.
Do you want to keep up to date with the latest University College and alumni news?
The Alumni Office previously posted a copy of The Simmarian magazine to all 20,000 St Mary’s alumni annually. In 2010, The Simmarian was replaced by an electronic newsletter.
Like The Simmarian magazine, the Simmarian Online newsletter is packed with news about former students, stories about St Mary's and information about all of the free services we can offer you. If you haven't already given us your email address and would like to receive a newsletter, please complete our online form.
Where are they now?
This is a section within Simmarian Online where you can let us and other Simmarians know what you have been up to since leaving St Mary’s. If you wish to appear in the next edition of Simmarian Online please send us your details by completing the online form.
Have you ever wondered what your friends from St Mary's are doing now?
The Alumni Office runs the alumni postbox to help put you in touch with lost friends. Due to the Data Protection Act 1998, we cannot give out other people's details without their permission, but we can forward stamped mail or contact someone on your behalf requesting they contact you.
Have you considered arranging your own reunion
at St Mary's?
Get together with old friends and have a look around the campus, stay in halls, have a drink in the SU, or perhaps hold a gala dinner in the Waldegrave Drawing Room. We can help you book your rooms and accommodation, arrange catering, campus tours and entertainment, and will advertise the event via our website, newsletter and social media channels.
Reunions are organised by former students and can be held on campus at St Mary's throughout the year. However, one weekend every year around late August or early September, alumni can take advantage of free room hire and also book overnight campus accommodation. At all other times of the year, our former students receive a 10% discount on room hire charges for functions held on campus. Please contact Strawberry Hill Conferences and Banqueting on +44(0)20 8240 4114 for more information.
Alternatively, if you are holding a reunion off-campus and would like to advertise it via our webpages, newsletter and social media, or if you would like to enquire about the possibility of a reunion for yourself not already advertised, then make sure to contact the Alumni Office and register your interest or event.
If you think our contact details for you may be out of date, please complete our online form to make sure you don't miss out on your reunion.
To find out more about our upcoming alumni events, please visit the Events and Reunions page.
Did you know that many formal and informal
groups of former students meet regularly to remember their time at St Mary's
and keep in touch?
If you would like to join any of our local, national or international groups, please contact the Alumni Office and we'll put you in touch with them. If there's not one near you, you may wish to start your own group!
Have you considered returning to St Mary's
We offer a wide variety of postgraduate and vocational qualifications and St Mary’s University College alumni are eligible for a 10% discount on postgraduate tuition fees (excluding PGCE courses). Please follow the links below to find out more.
Would you like to help current students by giving them informal careers advice?
Former students of St Mary's can now be found in all areas of employment and our current students would appreciate advice from Simmarians working in a whole range of professions.
We are looking for alumni with different levels of experience, from senior management to graduate entry. Please contact the St Mary's Careers Service on +44(0)20 8240 4055 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
Did you know that the St Mary's Careers Service is available to former students for a further two years after graduation?
GradClub fees start as low as £25. The fees are staggered, so the quicker you join after graduation the cheaper membership is. Graduates are entitled to join GradClub until December of the year of graduation. If you would like to know more about the benefits of joining GradClub call the St Mary's Careers Service on +44(0)20 8240 4055, email email@example.com or visit www.gradclub.co.uk.
