Have you studied at the University of Gothenburg? Then you are an alumnus/alumna! On this page you can read more about what the Alumni Network has to offer you.

A former student who has studied at an institution and completed their studies is defined as an alum. Alumni are a valuable resource because they contribute experiences, knowledge, and networking opportunities for current students and the university.

When you register as an alumnus/alumna at the University of Gothenburg, you gain access to a global, social, and professional network in a variety of industries. You can participate in events, subscribe to newsletters, access the latest research, receive career advice, discounts, offers, and everything included in lifelong learning!

Your membership in the alumni network is and will always be free of charge.

Education, Research & Collaboration

Do you want to develop your knowledge and skills? The University of Gothenburg offers commissioned education to all sorts of businesses, public services and organisations.

The training we provide is scientifically based and is therefore continuously under development. Our teachers and researchers are part of both national and international networks.

As a part of your life-long learning, you can of course search from the ordinary range of courses and programmes if you need to update your skills, or considering changing profession and therefore need a new education. 

There are also many examples of fruitful collaborations and meeting places between our researchers and various organisations and businesses.

Sweden Alumni Network

The University of Gothenburg’s alumni activities for English speaking alumni abroad are still under development, therefore we recommend the Sweden Alumni Networks supported by the Swedish Institute.

You can find local alumni networks all over the world that are open for anyone who have studied or researched in Sweden. Have a look in the calendar, sign up for notifications for alumni events and you can have a fika back home.
