Every year we organise the alumni milestone reunions of 20, 30, 40 and 50 years and will contact you by letter or email with details of the upcoming event if you are celebrating a milestone year! Update your contact details in order for us to keep in touch with you.
We also regularly organise reunions and networking events, which help connect and re-connect you with each other and your school. Whether you are based in Ireland or abroad, the Alumni Relations office is here to maintain these close links. Organising a reunion is an ideal way to get together with friends and reminisce about your University days.
Would you like to organise a reunion for your old friends or former classmates or perhaps you'd like to set up a networking evening for alumni in your area? Please contact us to help us guide you through this and promote your event to fellow graduates by email and alumni social media platforms.

Career and Mentoring
We assist in general queries on a day to day basis post-graduation. Post graduate Career support is offered through the Career Development Centre, which provides students and graduates up to three years quality career guidance. This information service is focused on facilitating and empowering students and alumni to manage their career development.
The Student Registry Helpdesk is your point of call for ordering transcripts. There is a 10 working day processing period for standard transcripts & a five week processing period for archive transcripts (pre 1986) There will be times that this process time will be extended due to huge numbers of Transcript Requests as this is required by the service to deal with all requests. Under the Data Protection Act Transcript Request Forms must be signed by the student whose results are being requested .
Under the Data Protection Act we cannot discuss the student's results with anyone other than the student themselves.
