China (East) Alumni Association

Room of people chatting in groups

Join our creative network of UAL graduates in East China

The UAL China (East) Alumni Association boasts more than 700 members. We aim to represent alumni across East China, one of China’s most important economic and cultural regions.

Our alumni come from all over the world so we want to communicate across cultures, present ideas and share job opportunities. We also organise social, professional and cultural events for our alumni community and UAL family.

Our group is supported by British Consul General in Shanghai, British Council and British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai.
