Alumni: the benefits of staying connected
You’ve sat your last exam, doffed your cap at graduation, and waved goodbye to student life. But your connection to ACU doesn’t have to end just because your time on campus has. Here are some of the benefits of joining our alumni community.
While furthering your education is always a good investment, we know that postgraduate study can feel like a daunting financial commitment. This is why we offer our alumni a full 10 per cent rebate on all of our postgraduate courses. Whether you’re interested in education and arts, health sciences, theology and philosophy, or law and business, taking advantage of this alumni rebate will make a big difference to your course costs.
Know your networks
If you’re not already on Linkedin… what are you waiting for? It’s a great resource for industry news, there’s lots of information for recent graduates who are trying to land their first job, and it’s hands down the best site to forge career connections with people and brands – including us.
With almost 33,000 ACU alumni on LinkedIn, it’s easy to tap into our networks. Follow us to stay up to date with all of our news, get to know your fellow alumni, and discover job opportunities with us. Also, make sure we have your correct contact details so you can receive our alumni e-newsletter and our yearly Alum magazine.
At your service
If you didn’t take advantage of our free Career Development Service while you were still a student, it’s not too late – and it’s still free. Our alumni can access all of our career services for two years after graduation. With offices on every campus, the career team will help get yours on track. A great place for graduates to start is the ACU CareerHub, which is our online portal for information and job opportunities. They also offer workshops and programs, face-to-face, phone, and Skype appointments for careers advice, invites to employer events, and the team can review and refine resumes and job applications.
Time to shine
Year after year our alumni achieve incredible things as they make their mark. From Olympians to tech entrepreneurs and teachers, we love recognising your amazing achievements at our yearly Alumni Awards. Nominate yourself in one of these four categories: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Award, Community Engagement Award, International Contribution Award, and Young Alumni of the Year Award. All alumni are welcome to enter and attend our annual awards ceremony where we reveal our Alumni of the Year winner.
