How our incredible graduates stay connected.

Shillington + Alumni = #Shillumni Graduate Network

The Shillumni network is how our incredible graduates stay connected. We connect in our private Global Slack channel (please email shillumni@shillingtoneducation.com for a link to join) and our private Facebook Group for discussions and resource-sharing, and we also love bringing graduates back to campus for exclusive Shillumni events.

In 2019, we’ve hosted How to Get Hired in London and Melbourne. Watch a video of the London panel advice. Plus, we’ve launched a new event called So Now What? in New York, featuring Shillumni presentations to share advice on what happens after graduation.

In 2018, we hosted Sketch App workshops, a Shillumni Talk with Veronica Fuerte Julve, Founder of Hey Studio and introduced a new panel event. How to Get Hired was held in New York and Sydney. Kicking off with a discussion panel of industry employers, graduates then broke into one-on-one portfolio reviews.

In 2017, we hosted Sketch App workshops and Shillumni Talks for graduates at all six campuses. Watch video advice from Debbie Millman’s visit to Shillington New York and watch full video of Adrian Shaughnessy’s Shillumni Talk at Shillington London.

#Shillumni Referral Program — Refer Your Friends and Win an iPad!

Our happy graduates have referred so many amazing students to Shillington over the years. We want to say thank you through the #Shillumni Referral Program!

From 1 February 2022 to 1 February 2023, all #Shillumni who refer a new student will be entered into a draw to win a brand new iPad Air (64GB, Wifi) and Apple Pencil. Here’s the gist:

  1. Refer and win! If your friend applies for any Shillington course between 1 February 2022 and 1 February 2023, you’ll automatically go in the draw. Shillington will randomly select a #Shillumni winner from around the globe. One winner will be selected every quarter—1 May 2022, 1 August 2022, 1 November 2022 and 1 February 2023.
  2. No limit. Refer as many new students as you want. Each referral increases your probability of winning!
  3. Make sure your friends know the deal before applying. They must share your referral details within their online application. Cannot be added retroactively.
  4. We’ll send the iPad wherever you are. Not based in one of our campus countries? No worries—if you’re the big winner, we’ll make sure it gets to you.
