Email for life forwarding service

All our alumni who graduated before 2013 can use our free email for life forwarding service. This service provides you with a forwarding address, rather than an email account, which will redirect all of your emails to the email account you nominate.

This means that if you change jobs or internet service providers, you don't have to let everyone in your address book know about your change of email address – instead you only have to let us know.  

Apply for the email for life forwarding service.
