Posted in: Get Connected, Newsletter, On campus

December 2019 alumni update:

Last Christmas, you gave us your donations – and over the past year, we’ve happily given them away. You’ve helped us to:

  • award 112 scholarships to support bright young people, like those pictured above
  • raise £13,145.93 via Crowdfunding at Bath to support students and research
  • kick-start exciting projects ranging from a robotic device for early breast cancer diagnosis to a gardening scheme on campus for student wellbeing

You’ve also generously given your time by volunteering at our Get Connected events and sharing your careers experience with students and fellow alumni on Bath Connection. Our mentor numbers continue to grow, and we now have representatives from over 40% of the world's countries.

Thank you for being a part of this incredible community.

We wish everyone celebrating a very merry Christmas, and the happiest of New Years for 2020.
