Alumni and Friends

Welcome to the alumni pages of the website

When you graduate from Worcester you automatically become an ‘Old Member’.  This is a reference to the fact that your membership of College, which began the day you matriculated, is lifelong.  We strive to keep you engaged with College at every stage of your life.  The Development Team is your link to both the College and the wider Old Member community, from the time that you graduate.   

We are currently in touch with around 8,500 Old Members in 99 countries.  We hope that you will enjoy connecting with College, and each other, through our busy events programme which takes place in the beautiful grounds of College and at venues around the world.  More recently, since the pandemic, we have increased the number of online events we offer, so do have a look at our events page to see if there is something that interests you. We are always keen to hear from you and your feedback is extremely valuable, so if you have suggestions for events please email omevents@worc.ox.ac.uk

As an Old Member, you can also stay informed and keep up to date with College through our publications, which include the annual Worcester Magazine, the Record,  and our Termly e-newsletter, or by following our College social media channels. To read our most recent publications click here. Please ensure that we have your up-to-date contact details so we can ensure that our news and event invitations reach you; you can either call us on +44 (0)1865 278374 , email development@worc.ox.ac.uk or complete our online update form

The Development Team is also responsible for all aspects of fundraising, working closely with our academics to support their research areas and providing direct funding for students through graduate scholarships, bursaries, hardship funds, and outreach activities.  We also facilitate gifts to College for other areas which enhance the overall student experience, such as our welfare provision, the library, our beautiful gardens and grounds and our historic building fund. Every gift large or small is hugely appreciated by us everyone in College.  To make a gift today click here.  

If you would like to discuss any aspect of our fundraising programme, have suggestions for future events, how we could improve our publications, or would like to share your own news, please do get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see many of you in College when restrictions allow.
