Alumni in Social Sciences programmes have various options to develop a professional network and stay in touch with fellow alumni. Join our LinkedIn group UvA Social Sciences, become a member of the UvA Alumni Association (AUV)) or become active in the AUV circle of your programme/discipline.

Social Sciences alumni network

Current students and alumni in UvA Social Sciences programmes are welcome to become a member of the closed LinkedIn group UvA Social Sciences.

This social media group has been created to connect alumni and students in Social Sciences of the University of Amsterdam. Our alumni are based around the globe and represent a huge pool of talent and knowledge. Here you can speak with (former) classmates, share and find information, explore ways to collaborate and seek advice. 

Please note that you will need to create a personal profile on LinkedIn first before requesting access to the group.
