When you graduate you become an alumna / alumnus of Utrecht University. There are several ways to stay in contact with - other graduates from - your study programme and the university.

Study programme networks

After you graduate you can stay in contact with your fellow students, study programme and study association via a LinkedIn alumni group. Via this group you will receive information about reunions, but also for example requests of the study programme to come and speak about your career path to the future generarion of students. You can also apply for this group when you are still a student. It will give you an indication of where graduated earth scientists work and what they do. Study association U.A.V. (Utrechtse Aardwetenschappen Vereniging) also supports you in your future career, by publishing possible internship and job vacancies among other things. 

University networks 

You are automatically included in the address database of the Utrecht University Fund and will receive information on upcoming events that they and the Young Alumni Network organise for -recent- graduates. 

  • The Utrecht University Fund (Alumni Office) makes contact between the university and its alumni and between alumni amongst themselves possible. You can become a friend for an annual contribution (or support them with a donation). Your money will be well spent! Furthermore, as a friend you will receive attractive discounts. And you will remain part of the Geosciences network, so you are kept informed on activities organized especially for alumni of this faculty.
  • The Young Alumni Network (JAN) can help you extend your professional network and knowledge in an informal way. 
  • If you live abroad, you can join one of the international alumni networks.
