Korea alumni forum and dinner

In recognition of the high levels of support offered to the University by its alumni in Korea, Stephen Williams, Head of Planning & Student Experience, International Office and Tom Such, Higher Education Foundation Programme Manager invite our Korean alumni to join them for the first Korea alumni forum and dinner on Saturday 23 March at 18:30 in central Seoul.

The purpose of the Forum will be to hold a number of small group discussions on how best the University and the alumni network can support each other. Alumni attendees will have the opportunity to discuss what they are looking to gain from being part of the Warwick alumni network and what services they would like to receive from the University.

As part of a two-way process, alumni attendees will also be able to discuss what kind of volunteer opportunities they would be interested in engaging with. Therefore, rather than hold a one-off dinner without any outcomes, we hope this Forum will produce a set of next steps for how the University and its alumni in Korea can work together in future for the benefit of both. We will then end the Forum with drinks and a networking dinner as a thank you for everyone’s active participation.

If you are able to join us for the Korea alumni forum and dinner on Saturday 23 March at 19:00, please email Claudie Combelas. We will confirm the venue for this event shortly, but we anticipate the venue will be in central Seoul.

In addition to your attendance at the “Korea Alumni Forum and Dinner”, Stephen and Tom would very much appreciate some support from alumni with the following events:

  • Date: Thursday 21 March (19:00 – 21:00) Presentation for Warwick Offer Holders
    Venue: this event will be held in the Gangnam area of Seoul.
  • Date: Saturday 23 March (12:00 – 18:00) EDM-UKEN UK Education Fair, Day 1
    Venue: 2nd & 3rd Floor of Ferrum Tower, 66 Suha-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul, Korea (Euljirolbgu exit 3 or 4)
  • Date: Sunday 24 March (12:00 – 18:00) EDM-UKEN UK Education Fair, Day 2
    Venue: 2nd & 3rd Floor of Ferrum Tower (as for Day 1)

The presence of alumni at these events had been invaluable in the past as part of the process of helping prospective students make the right choice for them. Therefore, if you are able to spare a couple of hours to speak to prospective students about studying at Warwick at our Offer Holder Event (Thursday 21 March, 19:00 – 21:00) or the EDM Exhibition (either on Saturday 23 March or Sunday 24 March), then your help would be greatly appreciated. Any amount of time you can spare to help at the EDM Exhibition would be appreciated – we do not expect alumni to be there for the full 6 hours!

Please reply to alumni@warwick.ac.uk if you are able to assist us, specifying the event, date and timings for when you would be able to assist.
