About our alumni and supporters programme

Our aim is to enable alumni, supporters and friends of Brookes to stay engaged with the University and with each other, as well as to provide opportunities for alumni and others to support the University. We do this by offering a range of services including events, networking, publications and communications, mentoring, employment advice and volunteer opportunities. We also fundraise to support the University’s students and programmes.

Processing personal data

We shall process personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 (GDPR). Oxford Brookes University makes an ongoing commitment to its students to support them after they graduate and, therefore, a legitimate interest to process personal data to support this commitment.

The University may also process personal data where you have provided your consent to do so.

Processing is necessary for the purposes of carrying out the obligations and exercising specific rights of the controller or of the data subject. We may use information about you to check that we are applying equality laws fairly, as it is authorised by Union or Member State law or a collective agreement pursuant to Member State law providing for appropriate safeguards for the fundamental rights and the interests of the data subject, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018, Article 9(2)(B)

Processing is necessary for the purposes of identifying or keeping under review the existence or absence of equality of opportunity or treatment between groups of people specified in relation to that category with a view to enabling such equality to be promoted or maintained in accordance with the DPA 18 Schedule 1, Part 2, Para 8.
