Alumni Stories

The Courtauld is small but mighty – and our alumni are testament to that.

Spread across 83 countries, our graduates go on to have a tremendous global impact – not only in the art world but also in politics, law, media, technology, marketing, medicine, finance and many other areas. From leading major galleries to initiating life-saving NHS programmes, what connects each of these alumni is the desire to encourage debate, influence change and advocate the power of art as a medium to stimulate a different view of the world.

Here is just a snapshot of some of these ground-breaking alumni, which we have divided into four ‘pillars’: Challengers, Advocates, Influencers and Leaders.
