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.
