Gathering of NUS Alumni at the Oxford and Cambridge club in London,
in conjunction with the International
Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) Alumni Directors' meeting
hosted by Cambridge University
The NUS Alumni Office engages 210,000 alumni who lives in 100 countries. Ten per
cent of our alumni are working and living overseas and these overseas alumni have
been an invaluable resource, facilitating overseas internships, student exchanges
and homestays for NUS students. They have contributed greatly by initiating inter-university
collaboration and providing mentorship opportunities for their juniors.
The Office works closely with its 16 Overseas Alumni Chapters in Australia, Canada,
China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and United States to
reach out to these overseas alumni and help them stay connected to their alma mater.
These chapters represent the heart and soul for our overseas community, engaging
our global alumni. They are our bridges not only to the overseas alumni, but also
to the rest of the world. These overseas alumni's dedication towards NUS is not
only commendable, but also inspiring for the younger graduates.
The International Alumni Centre (IAC), located in NUS, provides the opportunity
and facilities for international alumni to build bonds, renew ties and network with
their local counterparts and enhance the strong relationships between international
alumni and their alma mater. NUS will continue to engage both local & overseas-based
alumni actively to help develop the NUS global profile and programmes and also involve
them in student recruitment & endowment building.
