Events and opportunities

Leiden University organizes several Alumni events throughout the year to keep its alumni up-to-date with the latest information about our research and developments. These opportunities are not only a primary source for expert knowledge from the faculty and seasoned alumni, but also a great chance to meet old friends and make new ones too. Most importantly, we are able to keep you in touch with one another and it will be possible for you to use our network to your advantage. 

Moreover, as alumni, you can also support our university, for example by making a donation to one of our research or education projects.

Mutual involvement between the University and its alumni is important to us and we warmly welcome any initiatives. We already offer various possibilities for continuing your personal education and providing career counseling, but would like to further develop our activities in cooperation with you. We appreciate any ideas for events you are interested in or pro-actively organizing meetings to catch up with your former classmates and see how your careers are evolving. Interested?
