The Advancement Office

The Advancement Office is responsible for keeping in contact with all our graduates, raising money for university priority projects and looking after and acknowledging donors.

We are a small team working energetically to make the most of the opportunities to connect with, and grow, our family of friends, supporters and alumni. We are always delighted to hear from you.

Alumni Relations

We look after all our former students, regardless of whether you were with the University, Newcastle Polytechnic or our predecessor organisations. It doesn’t matter where you are located or whatever you are doing, you are still part of our global family and we like to hear from you.

We facilitate a range of networking, social events and reunions, as well as providing a range of benefits for all our former students. We also assist with connecting alumni both to one another and to the University through a number of volunteering and giving back schemes.

Development & Supporter Engagement

We seek to enhance the student experience by identifying opportunities to engage with alumni and other interested supporters. These opportunities may include student placements, graduate internships, mentoring and other areas of expertise which can support students in developing their range of knowledge and skills.

Opportunities for philanthropic giving are also developed in line with the University’s strategic plans, offering exciting avenues for potential philanthropic support at various levels. Charitable gifts can make a huge difference to the student experience through support which includes scholarships, prizes, improved facilities, equipment and other elements of priority projects which would not otherwise be possible.
