The University of Edinburgh Graduates' Association is just one organisation in a global community of others, all serving the best interests of the University of Edinburgh and Scotland's capital city. We are always pleased to work in concert with other organisations, and would encourage members to visit each of the websites and Facebook pages below.
We also encourage members to visit the University of Edinburgh's full list of domestic and international alumni groups, which can be found at the following link:
The Carlyle Society celebrates the work and life of Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881), Scottish essayist and historian, born in Ecclefechan, and Jane Welsh Carlyle (1801-1866) letter writer, born in Haddington. The Society meets regularly in Edinburgh and runs a series of talks and events. All are welcome
The Edinburgh University Club of London was founded in 1864 and aims to provide members with a continuing link to the University, and opportunities to meet other Edinburgh alumni. They also maintain links with alumni organisations for the other Scottish Universities.
The Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group was founded in 1954 by some Edinburgh University alumni who were former members of the University Dramatic Society. Since then, the original members have been joined or replaced by fresh generations of talent. They have been putting on theatre productions in Edinburgh for over 60 years and have established themselves as one of the city’s most respected amateur companies.
Founded in 1962, the Friends of Edinburgh University Library is a registered charity who support the work of the University by promoting, celebrating and enhancing the library's reputation and its collections. Each year the Friends host lectures, exclusive tours of library exhibitions and private visits to external libraries. All events and activities are publicised and detailed in their bi-annual members newsletter, the Piper.
