NCU Alumni Association
The Office of Alumni Relations welcomes all 2016 graduands. We are committed to fostering, improving and nurturing the quality of the relationship between the university and its alumni, with a view to increasing lasting and mutually beneficial connections between alumni and the institution.
ALUMNI RELATIONS CAN HELP YOU
Participation in alumni chapter activities is a fun way to meet and network with other NCU alumni and friends who want closer involvement with the university and each other. After graduation, join an alumni chapter. If there currently isn’t an alumni chapter operating in your area, we may be able to help you set up one. If you will be domiciled in the Middle and Far East or the European or Australian regions, you can become a part of an online international chapter.
The Office of Alumni Relations also collaborates with Career and Employment Services to share job and scholarship opportunities with you as soon as they become available. Share your contact details with us to facilitate the process. [Click Here]
