Your class or group

Big Weekend is open to everyone.

As a graduate of the University - whether University of South Wales, University of Glamorgan, University of Wales, Newport or perhaps our predecessor Polytechnic institutions - the message is the same: Welcome! 

2018 sees those classes who graduated in years ending in a 3 or an 8 mark special milestone years. So whether you're a graduate from 10 years ago, or 40 years ago - we'd be delighted to see you back on campus.

Families and partners are most welcome to attend too, although our dining event on the evening of Saturday 17 will be restricted to adults over 18 only.

Those listed below are specific cohorts, Faculty or discipline groups that are - so far -  taking part in the Weekend. Don't worry if you don't spot your specific group, as graduates and staff from across the University, and representing a range of disciplines, will be attending

Have you been thinking about forming a reunion group or generally keen to revisit former haunts to see what they look like today? Much has likely changed since you were last on campus - register for the Weekend today, or contact us and we can help you reconnect with your classmates and department.
