The 1072 Club

/images/USA 1072.png

Over the years University College has had many students from America. We also know that many of our alumni have moved to the USA. We recognise that many of these alumni would like to give back to the College, and so we have streamlined the process by which it is possible to donate.  

It is now possible for our alumni based in the United States to join The 1072 Club and enjoy the same benefits as our UK alumni. We understand that it is difficult for alumni based in the USA to use some of the membership options so we have included a selection of merchandise offers with the membership levels. Our membership tiers are:
