Alumni Activ­i­ties

Alumni network for grad­u­ates of Karelia Univer­sity of Applied Sciences

Karelia UAS alumni is a network for the grad­u­ates of Karelia Univer­sity of Applied Sciences or any preced­ing insti­tutes of Karelia UAS. It is the link between our educa­tional insti­tu­tion and working life. Karelia UAS alumni activ­i­ties aim at encour­ag­ing the grad­u­ates to continue their inter­ac­tion with their former univer­sity and thus strengthen the collab­o­ra­tion between the staff, grad­u­ates and students of Karelia UAS.

Alumni member­ship

The alumni of Karelia Univer­sity of Applied Sciences include all grad­u­ates of Karelia Univer­sity of Applied Sciences or any preced­ing insti­tutes of Karelia UAS as well as foreign degree students and exchange students who have been study­ing at Karelia UAS. Further­more, former employ­ees of Karelia UAS can also be regis­tered as Karelia UAS alumni.

As an alumnus, you will become a part of an expert network, you can create new contacts, and main­tain contact with your fellow students. Our alumni are provided with current infor­ma­tion on educa­tion, new research, recent projects and publi­ca­tions. We also invite our alumni to join our activ­i­ties and attend our events. You can choose the channel you would like to use to contribute to the devel­op­ment of educa­tion and to enhance­ment of our students’ working life knowledge.
