The AU Alumni Network is a professional and social network for all alumni (graduates) from Aarhus University - including from previously independent educational institutions that have been merged with Aarhus University (AU).
The following can also become members:
The network has been established to support the development of strong and life-long relations between the university and its alumni as well as engaged and rewarding interactions between alumni and between alumni, students and employees. We wish to help our alumni stay in touch with each other, and inform them about research, offers, projects and resources at Aarhus University. In addition, we wish to help our alumni become involved in events, anniversaries and different kinds of alumni relations initiatives – e.g. as mentors, speakers or as part of other “giving back” initiatives.
Membership is free of charge.
You are responsible for ensuring that the information you provide upon sign-up or later is accurate and for keeping it up to date. Naturally, this applies especially to your email address, your occupation and your possible specific areas of interest. In this way, we can ensure that the information, offers and requests we send you are as targeted and relevant as possible – and that they reach you.
Aarhus University makes a number of services and offers available to members of the alumni network. Our current membership benefits are described here.
When you sign up for the AU Alumni Network, you also consent to Aarhus University processing your personal data – in accordance with our Rules and procedures for processing personal data – so that we can make our communication and interactions with you targeted and relevant.
We particularly use your personal data to send you emails with
Your consent therefore includes consent to receiving such emails.
However, members who are students and not alumni will primarily receive emails that include career offers, e.g. event invitations or job offers, from the university’s career centres and their partners - companies and unions in particular. The content changes automatically when alumni status is obtained upon graduation.
This consent is an integral part of the membership and can therefore only be revoked if you withdraw from the network.
The information we send you is selected on the basis of information on your degree programme, seniority (if relevant), geographical location and nationality, occupation (job title and organisation, if relevant), your areas of interest and the collected data on your network engagement and your interactions with Aarhus University’s websites.
You can change possible areas of interest specified on your membership profile at any time - and thereby the nature and extent of the content covered by your consent. You do so by using the link at the bottom of any of the emails you receive from us or by requesting a direct link here.
Here you can read our Rules and procedures for processing personal data in their entirety.
Your membership continues until you choose to leave the network. If you no longer wish to be a member, you can withdraw by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would of course be interested in knowing the reason for your withdrawal, but this is in no way a requirement.
Should you change your mind and wish to sign up again, we recommend that you write to us at email@example.com before you re-register as a member.
