UGlobe helps to facilitate relationships with our alumni in order to extend the Utrecht University community beyond the classroom and to assist students with their career and professional development.

Alumni from various professions in society, business, politics or academia are regularly invited to meet our students to discuss their work experience and to answer questions. We also invite our alumni to social and networking events and workshops. By doing this our alumni stay connected, get involved and keep informed about the UGlobe community.

We look forward to being in touch and seeing you soon! If you have any questions or would like to be involved, please contact us by sending an email to:

'There are often substantial gaps between the realities in a conflict context and the international insights'
Hans Rouw
Hans Rouw (The Netherlands), MA Conflict Studies

My challenge is to continuously relate my efforts to people in conflict rather than deluding myself into believing that outdoing each other during international conferences is all that relevant for people in conflict. The Master’s programme has taught me to work in an organised matter, combine several academic disciplines to build an argument and to critically analyse the discourse.

'I wanted to find out what contemporary Europe is actually all about'
Emma Smit
Emma Smit (The Netherlands), MSc European Governance

If you are interested in contemporary Europe and want to know more about all its aspects I would definitely recommend European Governance to you. What is the impact of the EU on the Netherlands; in which way are Human Rights protected; what is and what isn’t true about all the prejudices? This Master's programme seemed like the best fit for me to find the answers on these topics.
