Big Weekend 2018

Following the success of Big Weekend Worldwide 2017 in locations as diverse as Benin City, Athens and Cape Town we look forward to welcoming alumni to reunion events and network gatherings across the world  - and back on campus in South Wales - in the summer of 2018. 


Celebrating each graduate's own unique connection to the University,  Big Weekend Worldwide is the University's most far-reaching alumni initiative, and focuses on bringing like-minded former students together in locations across the world.


For Class of 2017, it is their one year reunion and guests will have the opportunity to meet with members of the Careers and Enterprise Teams for 1-2-1 support and guidance. Plus, with alumni guests from across the years, this occasion will be the focus for reunions for other class and sports groups too.


Full details released in early Autumn 2017.


Providing a focus for people worldwide, activity will fall on dates between Friday 15 June and Saturday 23 June 2017* - Where in the world will you be Big Weekend-ing..?
