UiA Alumni is in the start-up phase, so our benefits will vary between fields of study.
A lot of exciting things are happening at UiA that we hope you want to be part of, also after having graduated. By becoming a part of our alumni network, we will have the opportunity to invite you to relevant events. This can be a national or local professional gatherings, work-shops, student events or other exciting events where you get the opportunity to meet old friends and start new acquaintanceships.
Does your business want to schedule an event with alumni and/or current students? This can be seminars, tours or social events. Get in touch, and we will help you get started.
When your time as a student has ended many people are filled with good memories. Do you wish to recreate any of these memories? UiA Alumni facilitates social gatherings for your class or field of study. We can send out invites, provide venues at UiA, book your previous lecturers etc. Get in touch and we will help you get started.
We also have a good deal with Teateret in Kristiansand.
Where do you go from here? As a member of UiA Alumni you can use our career guidance services for two years after graduation. In addition, you are welcome to join inspiring courses and lectures organised by UiA Career Services. When you have worked for some years, perhaps you want to share your experiences and be a resource for other students? We want to link students with alumni with the same academic background, and we see that there is mutual value in exchanging experiences.
"Co-creation of knowledge" is our vision. We want our students, academic staff and alumni to challenge each other through various activities. This can for instance be your firm providing Bachelor- or Master theses, student internships or being in touch with student activities. Cooperating with a student can mean getting inspiration to own development, introduce new perspectives to your business and get unexpected impulses to the workday that can be priceless. As an UiA alumn it is easier to get in touch with the fields of study you still wish to be a part of. Not sure of who at UiA to contact? Talk to us, and we will help you.
In the future we wish to offer mentors to current students. You can already submit your interest to us.
