Notice regarding the Worldwide Association of Notable Alumni (WANA)

We have recently become aware that a USA-based organisation known as the Worldwide Association of Notable Alumni (WANA) has been contacting University of Aberdeen alumni, and alumni from other UK universities, offering a professional networking service for a fee.

Please note that WANA is an independent profit-making organisation with no affiliation to the University of Aberdeen and it has been contacting alumni without our prior knowledge or consent. We would like to reassure our alumni that we haven’t provided this organisation with contact details and would never give out alumni contact details to other organisations without prior consent.

We would encourage our alumni not to pay the membership fee or agree to be interviewed by WANA. Please note that the University of Aberdeen already offers lifelong networking opportunities to all alumni, including professional and social events both in the UK and internationally, in particular through our alumni chapters and associations and online networks.

If you have any questions or concerns about WANA, please contact us at

Kind regards,

Alumni Relations Team
