Tens of thousands of people from all parts of the world are studying, working or conducting research in Germany or at German institutions abroad or taking part in advanced training or language courses. The Alumniportal Deutschland, the internet platform for Germany alumni, can help them to stay in touch with each other and with Germany after their return to their home countries.

The Alumniportal Deutschland has been online since September 2008. The internet portal is a communication and contact platform on which a world-wide net of Germany alumni with close professional, expert and private connections to German interests is being established. At the heart of the portal is its online community, where alumni establish, secure and maintain contacts, exchange ideas in groups, forums and blogs and take part in online seminars. The Magazine offers a range of interesting articles, job opportunities, tips and information on the German language as well as event information and alumni news.

The Alumniportal Deutschland is open not only to scholarship holders of all funding organisations but also to those who self-financed their training in Germany or at a German institution abroad. This means that this is the first world-wide forum for all Germany alumni. We invite you to register with the Alumniportal Deutschland, to create a profile, to stay in touch with Germany and expand your world-wide network!

The Alumniportal Deutschland is a free service financed by the German Federal Foreign Office and supported by three German organisations with many years of experience in foreign cultural and educational policy. The Goethe-Institut is one of the three supporting organisations, contributing topics  on "culture" and "German language" and offering the service to its own alumni.


The free weekly Alumniportal-Newsletter offers valuable tips from experts, facts about Germany, information about current topics under discussion, activities of the Community and an overview of Alumni networks and forthcoming events. The free newsletter „Verstehen Sie Deutsch“ posts a daily saying or a favourite or curious German word for you to guess at.
