Alumni networks

By alumni, for alumni.

Our networks support recent graduates, offer events and networking opportunities, and facilitate world-class global connections.

UON alumni have established themselves all across Australia and especially in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and the ACT.

We also have networks and regional contacts in Asia, Europe, Africa, and North and South America.

If your location doesn't have an alumni network please register your interest by emailing alumni@newcastle.edu.au
