Opportunities for alumni

As an alumnus or an alumna, you did not only study, graduate, teach, research or work at Leipzig University, you experienced and formed your alma mater's history, too. This is why we place such a high value on a lasting connection between the University and its alumni.
Leipzig University's Alumni Network allows you to keep participating in university life – for a lifetime, if you so wish.

As a member of the Alumni Network, you can easily

  • stay up to date with current research and teaching and the University's development
  • participate in both a professional and social network
  • strengthen contacts from your student days and make new contacts
  • obtain qualified students and graduates for graduate work, placements and jobs
  • pass on practical knowledge, experiences and advice to students

You can see that remaining in contact with your University and other alumni offers many advantages – for former students, current students, and the University itself. This way, an enduring network can develop between the University and its former students, benefitting both sides at the same time.

Our alumni are potential ambassadors and advocates for Leipzig University. Your experience gives us new inspiration with regard to improving research, teaching and university culture.

History of alumni work at Leipzig University

Alumni work at the University has been built up in accordance with a development concept since 1997. Since 1998, it has been internationally implemented through the interdisciplinary project “Leipzig Alumni International”, which focuses on international alumni.

In order to also enable German alumni to keep in touch with each other and their University after their graduation, “Leipzig Alumni” was founded in 2007 as a central contact and service point for all German alumni and the numerous alumni initiatives (on faculty, institute, and chair level).

Both networks work closely together and coordinate their services and offers.
