Alumni and friends

We are here to help keep you connected with the University College after you leave, keeping in touch via social media, regular e-newsletters and yearly events on and off campus.

Our Alumni

We’ve taught some of the most remarkable individuals from all over the world who have gone on to have successful careers. As part of our unique and global alumni community, you have a number of benefits and opportunities available to you.

AECC University College is extremely proud of its alumni. Over the years as the institution has evolved from a chiropractic training college to a health science focused University College, we have supported and championed our alumni from around the world.

All former students of AECC University College, or its predecessor institution, Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, are automatically members, it is a great way to keep in touch with each other and find out the latest news from the University College. 

Alumni Reunion 2021 

We are delighted to confirm that the date for this year’s AECC Alumni Reunion is Saturday 2nd October 2021.

This year will be a slightly different event to previous years and will be held on AECC’s campus. The event will start in the afternoon with a Prosecco reception and an opportunity to look around the campus to reminisce and see the new developments. The evening event will follow on campus in the Quad within an aired-marquee, a buffet-style dinner with friends, and then later music to dance the night away.

So, whether you’re marking a milestone anniversary of your graduation, remembering those from 2011, 2010, 2006, 2005, 2001, 2000 and 1996 - or you simply haven’t been back to campus in a while, this year’s event is a must.

Tickets will be available to book online from 29th July at the ‘Alumni and Friends’ community here. You can also stay up to date with announcements by following our Alumni Facebook Page.

Sent out to our alumni community on a quarterly basis, Tide showcases our alumni successes, memories, and guest articles alongside University College news and updates.

The name Tide was chosen as we’ve taught some of the most remarkable individuals from all over the world who have gone on to have successful careers and we want to celebrate your achievements in our unique and global alumni community. As we send our graduates into the world, just as the tide goes out and returns here on Bournemouth beach, we hope you will return and retain close ties with us.
