“This event offers UK graduates the opportunity to connect with each other, exchange experiences and recall beautiful memories. I enjoyed the event and I am happy to be a member in the UK Alumni network. I hope that this network will grow and thrive." Ahmed Al Ali, Engineer and Alumnus of the University of Manchester
On the evening of April 25 the British Council and the British Embassy welcomed 140 alumni from 75 UK universities to La Cigale Hotel for the annual Qatar-UK alumni networking dinner.
The evening began with a networking reception and was followed by a speech from Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Qatar in which he emphasized the close relationship between the UK and Qatar and the ways in which UK alumni contribute to the friendly relationship between the two countries. The alumni were then treated to a speech by British journalist, historian and traveller Justin Marozzi about his forthcoming book which will tell the history of the Middle East fifteen cities.
