Alumni associations and chapters
The network includes numerous alumni associations and alumni chapters that offer their members professional networking opportunities, lectures and speaker events, Valborg celebrations, company visits and other activities.
If there is no association or chapter that is convenient for you, we would be happy to help you arrange an alumni get-together, or to establish a new alumni group, in your hometown. Contact us if you want to start an alumni association or chapter.
Being a member not only allows you to benefit from the Alumni Network, it also gives you the opportunity to give back and contribute to your alma mater. Our alumni are our ambassadors and help us spread Uppsala University’s knowledge and values around the world.
Many are active and committed members of alumni associations and chapters. Some help us design our degree programmes and courses, contribute as guest lecturers or help our students find internships and opportunities for degree projects. Others contribute financially to research, education or cultural projects at Uppsala University.
One way or another, our alumni are all a tremendous and valued asset to the University.
