HiOA Alumni - Your Lifelong HiOA Network

Whether you are doing a full degree at HiOA or are here for a semester or a summer, you are a full-fledged member of our alumni network from the time you finish your studies at HiOA.

What can HiOA’s alumni network offer you?

  • Access to seminars, conferences and lectures. Keep up to date by following our events calendar.

  • Access to career counselling, courses in career skills and career fairs. All of these services are provided by HiOA Career Services and are available to alumni for two years from the time you were last enrolled at HiOA.

  • The alumni network helps you stay in touch with people you met during your time at HiOA, as well as connecting you with people from other year groups and study programs. You can maintain and expand your network both by attending events and by connecting with fellow HiOA alumni on LinkedIn.  

  • Access to books, journals and other resources offered through HiOA’s library system.

  • We send HiOA’s own research magazine Viten+Praksis to all alumni of our degree programs who have graduated in the past three years. Unfortunately, Viten+Praksis is currently only available in Norwegian, though we are working on developing English content.

  • A growing number of study programs are starting their own alumni groups. They are usually made up of both alumni and representatives from HiOA. The groups plan events, exchange news and job opportunities and discuss developments in their professional fields. View a full list of existing alumni groups (in Norwegian). If you do not find your program, and want to contribute to starting an alumni group, please send us an e-mail!

Still a student?

There are multiple ways you can take advantage of the alumni network:

  • Connect with alumni from your field of study and from other fields on LinkedIn and in one of our alumni groups.

  • Get a handle on life after HiOA by attending one of our careers events. We make a point of inviting alumni to these events to talk about their experiences and share what they wish they had known when they were students.

  • Have a look at alumni’s career trajectories using HiOA’s own alumni portal on LinkedIn.

  • Read interviews with HiOA alumni working in a wide range of fields and industries (mostly in Norwegian).

We want you in the HiOA Alumni Network!

Do not just take our word for it! We recently asked three alumni "Why you should join the HiOA Alumni Network" and this is what they told us.
