Class notes

Class notes Reconnect with your friends and former lecturers by sharing what you have been up to since leaving the University. Whether you have a marriage or birth announcement, just want to say 'hello' to your friends or tell them about you dream job, you can do this through class notes.

Tell us your story and we will include it whenever possible in the next issue of the Alumni Association magazine, 'Aspire'.

Please note that class notes may be edited prior to publication for style or space purposes and that while all due care is taken regarding accuracy of information published, no responsibility can be accepted for errors.
