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
The study programme organises special activities to make it able to stay in contact with other graduated geographers and planners, and with the programme itself. Such as a series of lectures, excursions and (once in every five years) an Alumni Day. For you as an alumna / alumnus it is important to keep in touch with the work field, but also for the programme. This way you can help with the education of new students, for instance by offering an internship or giving a guest lecture. Read more on the activities and networking opportunities for Human Geography and Planning alumni (in Dutch) or join their LinkedIn group (in Dutch). Study association V.U.G.S. (in Dutch) also organises alumni activities.
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.
