Your profile is the public view, with in the Alumni Directory, of the information that that you have chosen to display. It is your choice as to how much or how little you choose to publish. Initially we will publish your name, degree and year of graduation. You can include your contact details, your website, your career and professional history and even pictures of you and your friends or your artwork. This profile is searchable by other alumni. If you do not wish to appear in the Alumni Directory you can let us know and we will un-publish your details. You can still have access to the alumni-online but others will not be able to find you. See below.
Simply contact the Alumni Relations Team and let us know that you do not want to appear in the Alumni Directory. You can email us: email@example.com
Once you have logged into your Alumni Online Community account, click "View my Profile", then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the link that says "Click here to view your details as another user would see them".
The Alumni Directory is a searchable directory of all of the alumni who have registered with the Alumni Association. It is designed for you find people that you know, your friends and classmates. It is not designed for alumni to mass email everyone who went to UCA. You are able to search by a combination of First Name, Surname, Former Name, Course, Campus, Year Graduated and Country. The more specific that you are with your search criteria, the more likely you are to find the people that you are looking for.
You cannot edit your education details. These are the official records that we hold for you. If you do not think that they are correct you may contact the Alumni Relations Team and we will happily look into the matter. If you have studied at another University, or if you have done a second degree for example, then you can add this to your profile.
