The sun was out for the UEBS Alumni Summer Barbecue in mid June, held at the Glasshouse Hotel in the heart of Edinburgh.

Set in the hotel’s stunning two-acre roof garden, with views up to Calton Hill and across the city, this informal event gave the chance for alumni from across programmes and from a wide variety of graduation years to make new connections as well as rekindle old friendships.

Attendees also had the opportunity to meet with the current group of student ambassadors, who have supported the School’s marketing team over the past year, in facilitating contact with prospective students. We look forward to welcoming the student ambassadors officially into the alumni community at their November graduation.

Following the success of this event, the Alumni Summer Barbecue is set to be an annual event, in addition to the Burns Night Gala Dinner which is held each year in late January.
