Alumni network in India

Are you a former student or staff from Umeå University now living in India, or from India? Umeå University Alumni Network in India is a way to stay connected to the University and meet with other former Umeå University students and staff.


The network in India aims to promote activities that strengthen Umeå University's presence in India and support the social, personal and professional growth of alumni. For example:

  • Organize events in India from time to time to bond Umeå University graduates together socially and professionally.
  • Act as ambassadors for potential Indian students and researchers.

If you have ideas on specific activities, please contact Maneesh or Renuka! Contact information can be found below.

Keep in touch and stay updated

To get the most out of the alumni network, interact with fellow alumni and update your information on social media and in the Alumni Net.We also encourage you to join Alumni in India Facebook page and Umeå University Alumni group on LinkedIn.
