Top five benefits of staying connected to your uni
Graduation doesn’t have to mean goodbye. When you graduate from ACU, you automatically become part of our alumni network – a network of more than 92,000 graduates who are making a difference across the world.
How involved you are is up to you, but there’s a range of benefits for staying connected. Here are our top five.
1. Develop your career
It can be a challenge finding your feet in the first few years of your career. As an ACU graduate, you’ll get access to a professional career development service which will provide support and guidance for your first two years out of university. You can also lean on our international network of industry partners and fellow alumni who know what you’ll have to offer as an ACU graduate.
Thinking of upskilling or reskilling in your career? All our alumni receive a 10% discount on postgraduate study with us.
It’s not what you know, it’s who. As an ACU alum, you’ll have access to an international network of more than 92,000 graduates, which gives you the opportunity to connect with like-minded people. And it’s not just our graduates you’ll stay in touch with. You can also stay in contact with lecturers and tutors, who have a range of industry and professional connections. As we run plenty of events throughout the year, you’ll have numerous opportunities to reconnect.
3. Courses and resources
Want to increase your employability or gain new skills? We offer a range of postgraduate courses. And as a member of our alumni network, you benefit from an exclusive 10% discount on any future postgraduate study you undertake with us.
Whether future formal study is on the cards or not, you can still keep up your education. As a graduate you get access to our extensive library, so you can stay up to date on new practice and research as you progress through your chosen career.
4. Be the first to know
As part of our alumni community, you’ll be kept in the loop on exciting news, graduate stories and research pieces. You’ll also receive invitations to our exclusive events, and receive our annual publication ACUalum.
5. Share your success
We’re proud to celebrate the achievements of our alumni. So in 2015 we launched our inaugural Alumni Awards, highlighting the contribution our alumni make to the community. Each year, we receive nominations for outstanding alumni across various categories, and celebrate the winners at a special event.
