Alumni Circles

UM alumni go everywhere; they swarm around the world. Alumni Circles provide the opportunity to get and stay in contact with other UM alumni and the alma mater. Circles are in spread over The Netherlands, Europe and worldwide, see the list below. New ones pop up regularly all over the world. Alumni Circles organize all kind of activities.  

A circle can serve various purposes: sometimes the emphasis is placed on sociable contacts; in other cases a circle's programme focuses on network development. However, all circles ensure that alumni stay informed of developments inside and outside of UM, and that they can learn from the experiences that their fellow alumni have had with regard to companies an/or institutions in the region. In addition, a circle can also serve as a feedback group, for the local authorities for example. 

Core Groups
The active Alumni Circles have so-called alumni committees or core groups; these members organize the follow-up meetings. Each core group has a contact person. A circle's success largely depends on the initiatives and commitment of these core groups. To guarantee this success, a yearly meeting in Maastricht will be planned for the organizing committees/core groups of all alumni circles. The representatives of the various alumni circles are also invited to all other alumni circle meetings. The central information and organization for alumni is the Alumni Office. Should you have any questions, please contact us at alumni[at]maastrichtuniversity[dot]nl

      A team of UM alumni in Singapore are taking steps to build a UM community in Singapore. On June 28th, the alumni sealed the commitment by tasting a nice glass of wine at The Straits Wine Company in UE Square.

      We have plans for regular social activities and a few interactive workshops to keep the UM spirit alive in Singapore. All UM alumni living in Singapore are invited to our events. But if you know of someone who graduated from Maastricht University and is not receiving our invitations, please let us know.

      Building a UM community in Singapore….interactive, educational, great networking and a fun way to share memories about studying in Maastricht!
