Global networks and groups

To enable alumni to connect with UOW and one another, we hold regular functions and facilitate a range of informal and formal groups and chapters.

Associations and groups

When you graduate with a qualification from an Australian university, you are an Australian alumnus, regardless of what country you may now be living in.

Below are links to Australian alumni associations located in countries across the globe to help you connect with other Australian alumni living in your area.


The University of Wollongong has been made aware of an organisation known as the Worldwide Association of Notable Alumni (WANA) which has contacted some of our alumni, offering membership for a fee.

Please note that UOW is in no way affiliated with this organisation. The University does not share your personal details with any external organisations. UOW alumni do not need to pay to be members of our global network of alumni events, offers, benefits and communications.

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact or +61 2 4221 3169.
