(Recently) graduated at the department of Communication Studies?

Completing your studies and life as a student doesn’t necessarily mean the end of your ties with our department! Our alumni are our ambassadors, but on a more personal level our alumni programme can be a valuable source of contacts, knowledge, (job) opportunities and exchange of experiences.

That is why we think it is important to invest in an active relationship with our alumni. The alumni programme ‘Alumni.comm’ serves to reinforce the exchange between the department and its alumni and alumni amongst themselves. Thousands of graduates do form a powerful network after all.

The cornerstone of our alumni programme is a yearly event called Alumni Café. Here we invite two interesting guest speakers and treat everyone present to some consumptions. The ideal moment to encounter your fellow ex-students and maintain or even expand your network.

Membership benefits:

  • Special conditions when partaking in events and activities
  • A discount in the Ghent University restaurants
  • Access to Ghent University’s sports facilities and lessons offered there

After a year, your alumnus benefits card needs to be renewed. You can then opt to stay a free member or become a paying member (5 euro).

Paying members keep benefiting from the alumni programme benefit card. Free members keep receiving our official communication but membership benefits expire.
