Exeter China Alumni Association (ECAA)


Engaging and supporting alumni in China

The Exeter China Alumni Association (ECAA) was founded by volunteers in 2012 and has since grown into Exeter's largest international network supporting alumni across China with chapters in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Chengdu.

ECAA's goals are to:

  • encourage a lifelong relationship between alumni and the University
  • increase alumni involvement with the University (volunteering and events)
  • support alumni in professional development (employability)
  • engage alumni through social activities (events and social media)
  • grow the University of Exeter 'brand' in China
  • offer advice, support and guidance to current and prospective students

Who are we?

The Exeter China Alumni Association ECAA was founded for the purpose to build a strong network of alumni from the University of Exeter in China, and to keep all alumni connected to their Alma Mater through various channels. It is committed to cultivating a lifelong relationship between the University and alumni through fostering camaraderie among alumni in China. The association supports the mission of the University of Exeter and in doing so affords alumni opportunities for continued professional development, networking, and at the same time acts as a communication platform, and an online library resource. Read more about the ECAA via their welcome message and a letter from President.

The ECAA volunteer committee give their time and expertise to support alumni throughout their whole Exeter journey – from prospective students through to welcoming all alumni in China to get involved in events to support their university. ECAA organise annual employability activities, professional networking events and social gatherings. Also, ECAA support alumni entrepreneurship and investment in China and UK.
