In cooperation with Alumni Relations a series of online activities will be planned to celebrate our European connections as part of Europe Day. Professor Claire Wallace, from the School of Social Science, will be leading a discussion on examining Europe’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and the future of the European Union (please see the itinerary below).
Beginning on May 9 and ending on May 16 we will be sharing stories from our European alumni community on the alumni relations twitter and Facebook pages and we will be hosting our first online event (more booking details below).
During this uncertain time, the impact of working together and supporting one another cannot be underestimated and we are so proud of our Aberdeen family for all that you are doing!
We hope that you enjoy this celebration and thank you for all of your support!
