Become an international ambassador

To establish and to support alumni chapters we are always looking for enthusiastic representatives willing to become our contact points in different countries and work with us in the coming years.

Our alumni donate thousands of hours of their valuable time every year to support current and future students and fellow alumni! By giving your time you would be joining our active volunteers from around the world.

We expect our alumni representatives to:

  • Support local professional and social activities of Ghent University.
  • Be an advisor and contact point of Ghent University in your country.
  • Initiate or/and maintain the Ghent University alumni network in your country, i.e. manage the Alumni chapter.

This will be on a voluntary basis but we offer you:

  • The opportunity to build up your curriculum vitae, work on your image, as well as help recruit students – all this being fully supported by Ghent University.
  • The opportunity to network with top Ghent University alumni abroad and get first hand career advice from them.
  • You will be provided with Ghent University business cards – the ideal networking and branding instrument for you!
  • Upon completion, you will receive an alumni ambassador certificate and a letter of recommendation, signed by the Rector.
