Alumni network

Have you studied or worked at Umeå University? Then you are an alum. 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 is a fancier word for "former students and staff".
Our alumni can be found in over 100 countries.
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.

Being an alumn

An alumn is a former student or staff at a particular university. Umeå University considers you an alum if you have studied and received academic credits here, whether you finished your degree or not, or if you have worked here. However, some of our programmes have chosen to focus their alumni work on people who have completed their degree.

Stay in touch

Use this form to tell us how you would like to stay in touch. You can receive our newsletter and invitations to alumni events around the world, both physically and digitally. It can be events organized by the Alumni Team, local alumni groups, the University together with other Swedish Universities, Swedish Embassies or Sweden Alumni Networks and the Swedish Institute.  

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

Some of Umeå University alumni have gathered in international groups on various platforms.
