ICEH Alumni Network

Alumni workshop 2014: Q&A session with Professor Allen Foster

Past students share their knowledge and skills

Our alumni network allows our skilled graduates to keep in touch and share knowledge long after they have completed their courses. We inform them about new courses, new key research and career opportunities. They in turn let us know about their own achievements and opportunities they can offer.

Alumni workshop

The annual ICEH Alumni Workshop offers recent graduates of our MSc Public Health for Eye Care the opportunity present to an audience of staff, students, sponsors and facilitators on what they have done since finishing their course. The workshop enables ICEH staff and sponsors to provide support and advice to students, six months after the completion of their studies. It also enables collaboration with past students and promotes the development of strong professional networks for our alumni and VISION 2020.
