IM Alumn: careers after international education

The Alumni Society at the Department of Informatics and Media – IM Alumn – together with the student organisations at the department organise a seminar where you will meet former students and learn from their experiences from education and jobs.

What are former master students and students from our international educations doing when they leave Uppsala University?

This will especially be an opportunity to assemble students from our international educations with focus on International Media and Communications Studies (IMCS) and all exchange students that have studied at our department, the former DIS department or at the Sociology department.

We will have short presentations by two former Master’s students and one student from International Media and Communications Studies (IMCS).
