Alumni network

Have you studied or worked at Umeå University? Then you are an alumn. The Alumni network is for you. A professional and social network and a way to stay in touch with the university and former fellow students and staff.

Alumni

Alumni is a fancier word for "former students and staff".

Worldwide

Our alumni can be found in over 100 countries.

300 000

are previous students of Umeå University

Alumni are important ambassadors for the university and you can play a role in furthering the university's goal of facing the future with knowledge across borders and boundaries.

We want to keep you informed about what is happening at the university and give you opportunities to meet other alumni and staff, take part in different alumni activities worldwide as well as contributing to the development of the University.

Stay in touch

The web based platform Alumni Net closed 31 March. Until further notice, you can use this form to tell us how you would like to stay in touch. You can receive our newsletter, Think magazine and invitations to alumni events. 

If you have a LinkedIn profile and have not yet added Umeå University as your school under Education, we encourage you to do so. That way you make it easier for other Umeå University alumni and students to find you. You can also join the Umeå University LinkedIn group

Any further updates on how to stay in touch with the University in the future will be published here. 

Keep thinking

Gain new perspectives by furthering your education with competence-building courses or advanced degrees. Learning is a lifelong process, and as an alumn of Umeå University you are always welcome back to take extra courses or collaborate in research. Some of our courses are web-based. Find competence-building courses or advanced degrees.

Give back

Use your talents and resources to help make Umeå University an incubator for ground-breaking research and education. You can help the University with internships, degree project partnerships, trainee jobs for students, or perhaps become an ambassador for Umeå University in your region.
