Become an ambassador

Leiden Alumni living abroad can be tremendously valuable to the university. We frequently collaborate with numerous alumni who voluntarily contribute to certain activities or projects. There are several ways in which you, as an alumnus, can support your university.
If you live outside the Netherlands you can, for example, become active in chapters in your city or country, or even become an ambassador for the university. A whole new network will provide you with professional and social networking opportunities.

Share Leiden with your network
If you are a Leiden Social Alumni Ambassador, you can help us with sharing Leiden with your network.
Share 4 posts on social media we send you in 1 year, add your own memories (and photos if you have any) and share them in your own network. The posts could be about the Cleveringa lectures in your region, or about celebrating 'Leidens ontzet' at 3 October. We 'll provide you with a text and a video or photo. Become a Leiden Social Ambassador

Connect Leiden to your country
Want to do more? Then you can become our Leiden Ambassador connecting Leiden to your country.

We'll get you in touch with other Leiden alumni in your country/region and discuss with them if there is a need for creating a Leiden Alumni Network or a chapter. By developing alumni networks around the world, alumni can gain professional and social networking opportunities to support their business or career advancement. 
Together you can organise Leiden Alumni events together, such as celebrating the anniversary of Leiden University on or around 8 February or 'Leidens Ontzet' at 3 October (remember the herring?); helping out with the Cleveringa lecture and setting up a network meeting. 

Besides starting your own network, we will occasionally ask if you can help us at a fair or answer questions from aspiring-students in your country who are interested in studying in Leiden. Become our Leiden Ambassador
