The IAU also offers lifelong learning, career enhancement and student mentoring opportunities.

Benefits of Alumni membership

The IAU-UAE Alumni associations’ primary objective is to help students find job opportunities and improve their chances of landing a job offer with possibilities for expanding a graduate’s professional network. Connecting fellow alumni is one way to find career and social opportunities, but reconnecting with past professors can offer a wealth of opportunities because Graduates could connect with professors in their field to gain worthwhile experience or guidance with a particular research topic. In addition to that, connecting with former classmates can benefit from belonging to an alumni association. Whether this leads to a career opportunity or is simply a chance to catch up with old friends and acquaintances, graduates will make the most of alumni directories and online social media groups that keep the lines of communication open well after the caps and gowns have been removed.
