How is the Aarhus University Alumni Network organised?

One overall network – a universe of knowledge and relations

The Aarhus University Alumni Network is one overall network that gives all its members the same basic package of offers and information.

The network also contains a variety of academic disciplines. The five faculties at Aarhus University all have different offers and ways to involve you as a member, and several degree programmes have set up their own subject-specific alumni groups or associations (mostly on LinkedIn) within the framework of the Alumni Network.

  • Arts has many subject-specific alumni groups and associations as well as opportunities for members to get involved at the faculty via the main network.
  • Aarhus BSS organises several alumni activities at faculty level, including news, events and other Aarhus BSS offers aimed at its alumni.
  • Health stays in touch with alumni through the Alumni Network and the faculty's LinkedIn page.
  • Natural Sciences has several academic departments with their own LinkedIn groups in addition to the overall network.
  • Technical Sciences, just like Natural Sciences, has several academic departments with their own LinkedIn groups in addition to the overall network.

Sign up for a universe of knowledge and relations

There are currently four portals to AU’s Alumni Network. It is important that you choose the appropriate portal for your study programme. 

It is important that you sign up via the relevant portal if your study programme is connected to Aarhus BSS, NAT or TECH. During the sign-up process, you can also select particular areas of interest connected to “your faculty”. This means that, as a member, you can tailor your participation to suit your interests.

Your basic membership status is the same regardless of which network portal you use to sign up.

Your membership profile will show which study programme(s) you completed at Aarhus University. Your study programme – as well as your current job – will help us select which information to send you.

If you have signed up via the general AU portal and your study programme is connected to Aarhus BSS, NAT or TECH, you can always select areas of interest for one or more of the three faculties by requesting a link to update your membership profile on the relevant alumni website.

You can also do this if you have signed up via a faculty’s portal but would like to hear about the activities taking place at more than one faculty.

What is an alumnus?

An alumnus is a former student who has completed a study programme at the university.

At Aarhus University, we invite current and former students, current and former employees, PhD scholars and exchange students to join and benefit from our Alumni Network.

Membership

Most of the content on our alumni portal is available to all visitors, but if you want to gain all the benefits of the network you must activate your profile.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Aarhus University!

Membership is free, and if for some reason you don't want to be a member any more, all you have to do is let us know.
