UKZN UK Alumni Facebook Group

Dear Alumnus


This Facebook page has been created for the exclusive interaction of UK-based UKZN graduates. There are almost 1300 UK-based graduates recorded on the University’s Alumni Database and probably many more such graduates living in the UK that we are unaware of. This site will allow graduates to interact with each other, to secure information on and from their alma mater and to receive invitations to events, suggest get-togethers and create a vibrant UKZN graduate network in the UK. We encourage you to interact with each other and our office (Alumni Relations) and to spread the word to other UKZN alumni about the existence of this site. Desiree Govender will be administering the page. If you require any further information, please contact the Alumni Relations office on email: or Ideas/suggestions on how to improve the site are most welcome.


Please go here: and send Desiree a friend request - She will thereafter accept your invitation and add you to the UK Group.
