Where We Are

Alumni of the Courtauld are a very international group. They live all over the world; many travel regularly for work or call more than one place their home, while others are native experts of particular areas.

From San Francisco to Singapore, The Courtauld’s influence is felt worldwide.

Since 2008, the Courtauld has been working to establish regional alumni groups for alumni to connect with fellow former students in their area. At present, groups exist in the following locations:


  • ‘Greater Cotswolds’: Paula Henderson (MA 1982, PhD 1992)
  • Southeast England: Mary-Lou Banfield (BA 1993) 
  • Western Central England: Christopher Griffiths (MA 2000)
  • East Anglia: Cecily Hennessy (PhD 2001)


  • BeNeLux (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg): Sylvie Ijsselstein (PGDip 1995, MA 1996) & Lieke Wijnia (MA 2008)
  • Canada: Alexandra Kim (MA 2000) & Sam Roberts (MA 2016) 
  • France: Devika Singh (MA 2005) & Valérie Didier Hess (MA 2005)
  • Germany: Sophie Ostman van der Leye (BA 2009) & Valeska von Bonin (PGDip 1999, MA 2000)
  • Greece: Eirini Marouli (MA 2010) & Myrsini Pichou (2009)

  • USA (NY): Betsy Thomas (MA 1999)
  • USA (LA): Laura Creed (MA 2009)

All groups have their own homepage on the Courtauld Association Network site, at www.courtauldassociation.com. If you live in, or travel frequently to, a particular area, do join up to find out what’s going on locally! We encourage alumni to post news and information about their own projects on these pages.

If you are interested in helping with an existing regional group, or starting a group in your own area, please contact alumni@courtauld.ac.uk.
