Alumni Card

‘We are rightly proud of our alumni who form an increasingly important part of our institutional identity. Even though you will have left the institution (or are about to leave), we want to give you a sense of lifelong belonging to the Academy –with the hope that you will always be an advocate for what we try and achieve.’

Professor Jonathan Freeman-Attwood CBE
