Alumni and Friends

Far from marking the end of your association with our College, your graduation marks the beginning of your lifelong journey as a member of our alumni community.

As Mary's alumni you join a community of over 9,000 people, a network spanning over a hundred years' of history, seven continents and a hundred careers. From the moment you enter St Mary's on the first day of Freshers' Week, you become part of something very special. This doesn't change when you graduate. Our alumni are an integral part of our community, driving and shaping the future of St Mary's.
