As in previous years, spring brings two very important events for the German branch of the University of Wales Alumni Association.
With a membership of over 220 members, it has grown over the years to offer networking opportunities and a substantial academic resource for both German University of Wales Alumni and German-speaking graduates who hold University of Wales’ awards.
Thursday 30th April – Celebration Party for the German Graduates, Cardiff
To further strengthen the Branch, all German graduates attending this years' Graduation Celebration in Cardiff are invited by the German Branch to celebrate their achievements following the event at Henry's Cafe Bar in Cardiff. The evening will start at 6:00pm, and it is a good opportunity to highlight the benefits of their Alumni organisation to potential members
