Last year the German Branch of the University of Wales Alumni Association celebrated its 10th anniversary. 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.
The Branch hosts a range of annual events, with two very special events coming up in the next couple of months.
