Alumni meetings in Cape Town and Pretoria

Leiden University organizes an alumni meeting in Cape Town and Pretoria. Alumni (graduates or former exchange students) living in and around Pretoria are more than welcome to join this alumni meeting.

Join us in April

Leiden University would like to invite you to an alumni meeting in Cape Town and Pretoria.

When a delegation from Leiden University travels abroad, we seize the opportunity to bring Leiden alumni together. This recently happened in Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore, Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Alumni responded with enthusiasm to the invitation for these meetings. 

Jeroen t Hart and Marieke te Booij will visit South Africa in April and would like to (re) connect with you as former students of Leiden University.

This alumni meeting is a great opportunity to meet other Leiden alumni living in South Afrikca and to look back at your time in Leiden together with us. Besides we’d be very happy to hear what topics and events you’re interested in as a Leiden alumnus in South Africa and we’ll update you on the latest developments of your Alma Mater. So a very special occasion Leiden University would like to invite you for!
