The October edition of the University’s monthly eGraduate ezine has been circulated to over 40,000 Queen’s alumni around the world – and it’s another bumper issue!

The eGraduate, published on the first Tuesday of every month by the Development and Alumni Relations Office, is an integral part of the University’s graduate outreach programme.

Like The Graduate, its sister publication, the eGraduate showcases news and the latest research from around the Queen’s campus, features alumni updates, highlights the achievements of staff and students, and outlines events that may be of interest to alumni at home and overseas.   

The new GDPR rules which came in earlier this year and which oversee how organisations like Queen’s contact people however, have impacted on the number of graduates who hear from the University via email, so almost 30,000 alumni who previously received the eGraduate can no longer be included on the mailing list.

Graduates who would like to continue being part of the Queen’s community can ‘keep in touch’ by clicking here if they would like to receive regular electronic correspondence – including the eGraduate – from the University.

The October eGraduate features stories on Lisa McGee (of Derry Girls fame), the 2018 First Trust Bank Queen’s Graduate of the Year, the latest edition of the annual alumni magazine (The Graduate), which will be hitting alumni doorsteps in the coming weeks, and how QFT (Queen’s Film Theatre) is celebrating its 50th anniversary (which starts this Friday 5) during the month of October.

Commenting on the latest issue, Editor Gerry Power said: “The eGraduate provides a monthly snapshot of life at Queen’s and is really important in keeping our alumni in touch both with their alma mater and with each other.

“More importantly the eGraduate showcases the huge achievements and contributions of Queen’s alumni to life in Northern Ireland and around the world.

“Regular updates like this keep our graduates informed about the latest University research, fundraising initiatives, and volunteering opportunities, and the wide range of exclusive opportunities – such as reunions and events around the world and discount offers – which are available to them,” added Gerry.

By registering/confirming a personal email address with Queen’s Development and Alumni Relations Office graduates will:

  • Receive invitations to events and class reunions
  • Find out about further courses at Queen’s
  • Be advised of exclusive discount offers
  • Be kept up-to-date with all the latest news from the University
  • Discover opportunities to get involved with University life
  • Hear how fundraising activities impact on current students and researchers
  • Receive a monthly copy of the eGraduate

Graduates wishing to stay in touch online can go to  to let Queen’s know their preferences for ongoing contact from the University. Those who have lost touch with the University, and who would like to receive a copy of the eGraduate – or the 2018 issue of The Graduate – should use the link below to update their contact details.

Graduates who have not yet signed up to Queen’s Alumni Online (which allows them to manage how, and what they hear from Queen’s) can do so here.

Alumni can ‘opt in’ at any time to make sure that they receive future issues of the eGraduate and they can choose what subjects they do and don't want to hear about.

A PDF version of the October eGraduate is available via this link.
