Alumni Events

All Earth Sciences alumni events scheduled for 2020 have sadly had to be cancelled or postponed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. This included our annual Alumni Day and Dinner in May, where we were looking forward to welcoming back many of you who graduated in years ending in a 0.  We hope to hold these year group reunions in May 2021.

We are looking forward to welcoming alumni back as soon as we are safely able to do so. We'll let you know about upcoming events via email, and also here on our events page. If you have any questions, do please .

Alumni Festival

The 30th Alumni Festival is fully digital this year.  Take a look at the online programme. Join Earth Sciences' Daniel Field at an event as part of the digital festival:

New 'wonderchicken' illuminates the origin of modern birds

Thursday 24 September 2020, 12.30-1.30-pm

Today, birds are ubiquitous, occupying virtually every corner of the Earth. Yet, until recently we have known very little about the earliest stages of their evolutionary history. Daniel Field will reveal the world's oldest modern bird fossil, and what it teaches us about how, when, and where living birds originated.

We were delighted to welcome alumni and their guests to our 14th Alumni Day & Dinner in May. The activities throughout the day included talks, tours, displays in the library and museum, including treasures from the archive, and our popular undergraduate mapping project talks. Some of the many photos taken on the day are now available on Flickr and YouTube.
