Alumni and VHL have a lot to offer each other
Alumni often have new ideas and professional experience. For example, as a former student of VHL University, you could give feedback on educational matters, become a guest teacher, offer work placements, become a commissioner or a member of a work field commission. VHL offers several activities and services for you as an alumnus/alumna:
VHL Training and Development
VHL Training and Development is part of VHL University of Applied Sciences. Here you can find business services, in-company training, courses, masterclasses, events and contract education for third parties. The bureau of T&D offers a broad spectrum of specialist knowledge and services for government, semi-government, trade and industry, community work and individuals, both at a national and international level. VHL Alumni on LinkedIn
This platform was founded to allow discussions on subjects of the green domain in the full spectrum with (near) graduates and the people who work at VHL. Subjects that touch nature and environment, health of people and animals and responsible entrepreneurship. Subjects that you are concerned with and you'd like to share your thoughts about. At the LinkedIn platform you can build up and maintain your network. You can post arguments you would like a respons to, read opinions of others, exchange information, post and read job vacancies and read them, and much more.
Join us! Alumni associations
After your graduation there are all sorts of ways to stay in touch with the study programme you followed and to get information about the developments in the programme and the work field. There are two alumni associations especially for graduates of VHL University of Applied Sciences:
Aristaeus (Leeuwarden) VVA (Wageningen and Velp)
Through these associations you can stay informed about what's happening in your field of expertise, for example by reading the magazine for members. They also organise excursions, lectures, reunions and network meetings. And of course there are plenty of social activities you can take part in.
