FASoS - alumni

Are you a graduate from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences? We value our alumni and would be keen to keep in touch with you and welcome you to our Alumni network. So stay connected and make sure your contact details are up to date . 

Alumni can highly contribute to the development of our educational programmes and play an important role in career development and employability of our students. Sharing your work experience can help our students in their preparation for the job market and provide them with valuable information on the professional world.

If you are interested in contributing to events (e.g. Bachelor or Master Open Days) or if you would like to write a testimonial about how your study helped you with your professional career then please let us know.

Through the Maastricht University Alumni circles you can also visit Alumni events and stay in touch with your fellow graduates or meet Maastricht University Alumni from all over the world.  

Please visit the Maastricht University Alumni Office website for more information and possibilities or to update your contact details.

UM Star lectures 7 February 2019

The UM Star Lectures are intended as a way to facilitate alumni by bringing the university to them, and by providing an opportunity to meet us and each other in an informal setting. Apart from sharing knowledge and getting inspired by societally relevant topics, the event is meant to reconnect with fellow alumni and refresh memories of Maastricht and their student days.

For the special 5-year anniversary edition in 2019, we have increased the number of cities to 14, divided over 5 countries. The UM Alumni website shows an overview of the cities and speakers. Sign up for the one that inspires you the most!
