The Wellington Community exists to inspire and support the students as well as being a wonderful social and professional network for all its members.

OUR COMMUNITY

Join us

We estimate that there are over 28,000 members within our Community across the world – the challenge is how do we bring this network together to support the students, as well as being a wonderful social and professional network for all its members? The answer is Wellington Connect – our own online platform that will provide opportunities for all members; re-connecting with former classmates, making new connections, finding jobs and signing up to a rich and varied programme of events and activities.
