UPAA-UK was established in London on 7 February 2009 through the encouragement of then Philippine Ambassador to the UK Edgardo Espiritu who was once the President of the University of the Philippines Alumni Association and a member of the UP Board of Regents. Exactly two years after, a new interim group takes over from the core committee established in 2009. Lucero-Prisno will however hold office as President ad interim as the membership of UPAA-UK is to be consolidated since more alumni are being recruited from the other parts of the country including England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
