Bill Brown Design Suite, Queen's Building, University Walk, Bristol, BS8 1TR

This June all alumni are invited to join us in Bristol for the inaugural Alumni Forum, a major new event in our calendar.

Hosted by Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Hugh Brady and held in the spectacular new Queen’s Building, the Alumni Forum will include different breakout sessions, including panel discussions, talks and Q&As with the University senior team, academics, staff, current students and key alumni.

You will be able to choose the sessions that most interest you in a conference-style afternoon designed to engage and inspire, with opportunities to learn and develop, find out more about Bristol, reminisce your own experiences and debate current topics in Higher Education.

Sessions include:

  • Panel Discussion – A team of senior management discuss the University’s latest initiatives, new projects and challenges facing the Higher Education sector today, followed by a 25-minute Q&A session. Chaired by Lucinda Parr, Registrar.
  • A Day in the Life - Four undergraduates are in-conversation, gleaning genuine insight into what University is like for students, the roles they are engaged in outside of their study and their ambitions for their futures beyond University. Hosted by current PhD student and star of TV series Astronauts, Tim Gregory
  • Science of Happiness – Professor Bruce Hood presents his pioneering new research that explores what makes us happy and the science behind one of our most curious emotions.

The afternoon will also include a series of stands run by University staff responsible for some of the most exciting Bristol projects, including the Temple Quarter campus and our new Arts and Social Sciences Library. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided throughout.

We are also thrilled to introduce you to members of your newly elected Alumni Association Committee, who act as ambassadors for the wider alumni network and represent your needs.
