Young Alumni Network

The Young Alumni Network is specifically for young alumni (35 years and younger) living in the Netherlands, who have recently graduated and are at the start of their career. As a young alumnus you have different needs than when you are settled in your career path or when your career is drawing to a close.

What does the Young Alumni Network do?

Networking, your career and personal development – and of course a friendly atmosphere – are at the top of the agenda with the Young Alumni Network. The network offers young alumni the opportunity to get in contact with other young alumni to exchange experience, but also focuses on skills and career development. 

Since the Young Alumni Network has just started, the activities of the Young Alumni take place in and around Leiden and focus on Dutch alumni. This might change in the future.

By and for young alumni

The agenda for the Young Alumni Network is initiated by the board of the network, consisting of young alumni of Leiden University. Together they'll decide what the programma looks like and take care of a range of events for young alumni.
