Welcome to Connected

We are pleased and proud to welcome you back to the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and our new alumni pages.

Since opening in 1996 we’ve had over 2000 students walk through our doors, studying on our higher education programmes and our flexible learning courses and it’s through these pages that we aim to bring you back together.

We’ll keep you up to date on what’s going on at the institute, bring you news on your classmates through the annual alumni newsletter (See Me Now) and don't forget to check out the bulletin board if you are looking for work opportunities or want to post a message to reach the alumni network.

Alumni Reunion

We held a reunion of alumni from 2002, 3003 and 2004 on Saturday 15th May. Graduates from Poland, Spain, Switzerland and a large contingent from Germany, as well as the UK, met up with LIPA staff to catch up over a few drinks and a bit to eat. Guests watched graduation videos with enthusiasm and laughter, and exchanged anecdotes, many  of which seemed to involve drink or CCTV cameras... We will be posting the photos on our facebook page soon.

Copies of Transcripts and Certificates

If you require a copy of your degree or MA transcript or certificate, you will need to order this from Liverpool John Moores University. You can do this online at https://buyonline.ljmu.ac.uk/browse/category.asp?compid=1&modid=1&catid=1042 or find out more at http://www.ljmu.ac.uk/StudentServices/Exam/100658.htm

If you need a copy of your LIPA Diploma, please contact SchoolOffice@lipa.ac.uk

Want to Organise a Reunion?

If you want to organise a reunion we are happy to help by passing your contact details on to your fellow LIPA graduates. Just contact alumni@lipa.ac.uk with details.

Going on tour? Mounting a show? Help is at hand

With greater emphasis placed on the importance of networking we’ve developed an online directory of graduates, a searchable skills database and we also have a bulletin board where you can view and post messages.

Each registered graduate will have their own site presence and can include images, web links, career profiles and specialist skills. This is central to the site as it feeds into the online skills database and its success relies heavily on your input. Fellow alumni will search the skills database using key words, so the more detailed the information you submit the better. Guidelines and examples are provided throughout the site and registration is free.

Access to the site is restricted to LIPA graduates and former LIPA students, as well as current LIPA staff and final year students. You can also elect to become a mentor for current students.

If this is your first visit to the site you will need to complete a short registration process. If you’ve already registered – welcome back.

Facebook and Myspace Groups

In response to popular demand we now have official alumni groups on facebook and myspace for those of you who use these sites to network. The groups can be found at:

We can't always guarantee that everyone on the site is ex LIPA, and we hope that you will still use this site to search for people and use the skills database. We want to keep in touch - so please keep us informed of your current postal and email address, either by updating your profile on this site or by sending an email to alumni@lipa.ac.uk
