Invitation to download the Alumni Connect app

Posted on September 27, 2019

If you are an alumnus of the University of Pretoria, you are invited to join our prestigious alumni network.

We are here to help you achieve your true potential. Download our new UP Alumni Connect app and let your degree take you further.

The app is designed to help you expand your network, advance your career, give you access to exclusive opportunities and, most importantly, stay in touch with fellow alumni. Search for “Graduway Community” on Google Play or the App Store.

The UP Alumni Connect app is exclusive to UP alumni. To maintain this exclusivity, your request will undergo a verification process that will take one to three working days. It’s worth the wait – once you’re accepted, you will become part of a professional circle and be the first to enjoy access to all the latest UP content.
