NWU Alumni: Taking the legacy of NWU into the world

After graduating, there are many reasons to stay in touch with your alma mater. These include being part of a worldwide network of NWU alumni who share your educational background, having access to the Alumni Career Portal, and opportunities to contribute to the future development of the NWU.

The University has two main channels for interacting with our alumni: the Alumni Association and the NWU Convocation.

We furthermore communicate with our more than 300 000 alumni worldwide, sharing exciting news, opportunities and engagement to make your NWU bond and commitment even stronger.

We want to make you part of a network and empower you with a platform where you can see and seize opportunities long after you have graduated.
