Alumni Service  


A Vast Variety of Programmes

We offer a wide range of service to promote exchange between our alumni and our University. We offer information, a widening of your network, further education, support – and we hope to bring back fond memories of your past as a student in Leipzig. The University's central alumni programme is constantly being expanded.

Career Center

For students and companies alike, Leipzig University's Career Center gives advice on employment and career. By establishing a network of potential employers and Leipzig University's alumni, the Career Center is furthermore an important connection between studies and work. The job portal gives employers the opportunity to post offers for employment, internships and graduation works.

Further Education

Further education is an important part of modern professional life. Graduating from university no longer means that the phase of learning is over – on the contrary, learning is an integral part of life. So why not return to your alma mater for further education? Have a look at our programmes for further education and the "Studium universale". Start-up initiatives like SMILE can support you in your endeavours as well.

Looking for Memories in the University Archive

Remember your time in Leipzig by looking at writings from over 600 years of University history. If you need assistance or advice, our skilled archivists will be glad to help. You will find all kinds of artistic, legal, and historical gems. The archive’s extensive range and easy connectability between the document collections make it a very useful tool for research. You can sit down in the reading room and take your time looking at old scriptures and manuscripts. The University Archive's website gives you an overview of all forms of assistance the archive offers. A search engine to help you with your research can be found on the website as well.

Direct Line to the University

Who is researching which topic at the Leipzig University? In which way could my company cooperate? The Alumni Office is there to help if you want to get in contact with the University. We welcome your ideas and suggestions. Do not hesitate to get in touch if you have a question or a problem.

University Sport at a Guest Rate

Many alumni certainly remember the broad scope of sports at the Leipzig University. If you want to keep participating and would like to contribute to the Centre for University Sport, you can become a member of the friends' association Förderverein des Hochschulsports an der Universität Leipzig e. V.
As members of the association, alumni can participate in sport courses for a small fee.

Build Networks – Boost Innovations

The cooperation centre KOWA, based at Leipzig University, initiates, supports and accompanies the cooperation between academia and the working world. The KOWA is focused on topics such as changes in the working world, regional demand for skilled workers, students' professional orientation, the University as an employer, as well as the compatibility of family and work and equal opportunities. The KOWA explores these topics in the form of projects and offers information sessions, training and coaching. The KOWA is useful if you want to develop projects in collaboration, conduct surveys, organise meetings, or if you are looking for experts from academia and/or the working world for your projects.
