Alumni

Did you graduate (BA / MA / MSc) or obtain your doctorate with us? If so, you are cordially invited by the Faculty Board to register as a member of our alumni group!

Why register?

Improve your professional network

Stay in touch with your former fellow students and (former) lecturers, share ideas, knowledge, vacancies, and keep each other informed about philosophical activities through our closed LinkedIn group Alumni Faculty of Philosophy (log on to LinkedIn first) and the meetings that are specially organized for our alumni.

Keep your knowledge up to date

  • Lectures, symposia, summer and winter schools
    As a member of our group you can visit our lectures and symposia for free. Keep an eye on whether a summer or winter school is organized in your field. Participation in a summer or winter school is based on selection (sufficient prior knowledge is required, limited space available) and is at cost price. If you'd like to attend a particular summer or winter school, please send us a request (without obligation) to find out if a place is available for you. View the faculty events calendar and/or the UG overview for the current range.
  • Course voucher
    Keep your knowledge up to date using your course voucher! All members of our alumni group will receive one on request. The voucher gives you free access to a lecture series of your choice (excluding exams). View which courses are currently given.

Yearly Alumni Event

During our yearly Alumni Event, a current theme will be discussed, highlighted from a philosophical perspective.

The job market

Tell us about your experiences

We would very much like to know about your experiences on the job market. How well do you feel the programme you followed with us prepared you for your job? Did you acquire adequate skills during your studies and is your knowledge sufficient? Do you see points of improvement for the curriculum? Please let us know!

Would you like to share your experiences as a speaker during one of the Alumni Events? Contact our alumni officer!

Tell our students about your experiences

Although you come across philosophers everywhere in society, a recurring question from our students (and their parents) is: what jobs are there for me? Of course, our alumni are the ones to best answer this question. By sharing your knowledge about this, you will not only be of enormous help to our students, you’ll also gain contacts you might profit from later on.

Would you like to come and speak on a career day for our students, to give a guest lecture or to guide a student as a mentor? Contact us now!

Ask a philosopher: let us do research for your employer

Our Philosophy Knowledge Centre (Dutch: Kenniscentrum Filosofie, or KCF) is building a bridge between professional philosophers and philosophy in practice by helping companies and organizations with a philosophical research question in various ways. For example, we can do this through interviews, research, an internship or by giving workshops.

  • Does your employer have a research question with a philosophical component? Researchers of the Knowledge Center Philosophy can help!
  • Can you or your employer offer one of our students an internship?

Then contact the Philosophy Knowledge Centre!
