University College Utrecht alumni play a vital part in the most important events and activities on and off campus. They are invaluable when it comes to informing and inspiring current students about life after graduation. If you feel like giving something back and get active for University College Utrecht, read more about the possibilities here.
We are regularly looking for alumni who can help us at events such as the Open Days, the Career Conference, or the organisation of alumni events. Also, our alumni play an important role in informing prospective students about our education at school visits and presentations in the Netherlands and abroad, and digitally through social media. Calls for such occasions are generally announced via the UCU Alumni Platform on LinkedIn and in our newsletter. Do you wish to be involved in a different way? Always feel free to contact us and discuss the possibilities.
Students can benefit immensely from opportunities to interact and connect with young and more senior University College Utrecht alumni. The UCU Futures Centre, the UCSA Acquisition Committee and Alumni and Development Officer collaborate closely in order to match alumni with students in the most effective way. There are many ways in which you can inspire and motivate current students:
- Host a visit to your workplace by a small group of students
- Visit University College Utrecht and talk about your pathway since graduating
- Give students insight into life after University College Utrecht through a snapshot of your (working) day
- Offer students working experience by hosting a University College Utrecht intern in the Alumni Internship Programme (AIP)
If you would like to be involved, please let us know in what way you would like to support our students.
Do you have a wonderful idea for an activity that can bring University College Utrecht students and alumni together? Then we would like to hear from you.
University College Utrecht strives to enhance interaction between alumni and students. Therefore, we have allocated a budget to supporting new and innovative alumni initiatives that are aimed at bringing students and alumni together. Funding requests for co-financing of new alumni initiatives can be submitted by students, alumni, staff and teachers. Only requests for co-financing will be considered; other resources must be available for funding the event. The requested amount may not exceed €500.
For a full list of criteria for co-financing requests of alumni initiatives, and the application form, please contact the Alumni and Development Officer.
