Alumni associations

Although ISS alumni are scattered all around the world, many keep in touch with the people they studied with - both staff and fellow students.

In many countries alumni of Dutch higher education institutes (incl many ISS alumni) have set up a Netherlands Alumni Association (NAA) or a Holland Alumni Network (HAN) with which ISS has a good relationship. More information about these alumni organizations can be found on the Nuffic website. NAAs and HANs enable alumni all over the world to build personal networks and share knowledge, ideas and experiences with each other and their Dutch counterparts.

NAAs organize a number of activities in their home countries including:

  • formal seminars
  • informal social and cultural get-togethers
  • preparation meetings for people planning to study in the Netherlands

Not an NAA or HAN in your country yet?

For information on how to start up an NAA and for possibilities for financial support, visit the Nuffic website.

Alumni are also encouraged to sign up to the ISS online alumni community on Facebook. If you already have a FB profile, follow this link. If you do not have a FB profile, sign up to Facebook for free and search for the group 'ISS alumni - connecting the world'.
