Co-founded by KEDGE graduate Gilles Lavaure, Linksider...
More than 200 international graduates have already responded to provide assistants to students who are currently living abroad and experiencing difficulties, such as temporary accommodation, advice, contacts, moral support, and other types of support.
The power of a network is measured by its ability to mobilise in times of crisis.
More than 200 KEDGE graduates volunteering to help students in difficulty internationally
In this exceptional time of a COVID-19 pandemic, currently more than 200 of our school’s graduates live abroad. They are offering to help those students who are currently doing internships, their nomadic pro-acts, or attending partner universities located outside our borders.
Most of them have been expatriates for a long time and can be a real source to students. They have networks of local contacts, such as persons at embassies, doctors, etc. Sometimes they have accommodation that you can use temporarily. They can also answer your questions and give you helpful advice.
Are you a student living abroad experiencing difficulties?
If you are currently living abroad and are face a situation that you cannot resolve alone, don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to give us your name and surname, the city you are in, a contact phone number phone, and describe your situation.
We will put you in touch with a graduate who lives close to you and who can hopefully provide you with the hope you need.
We will look closely at each case individually and no contact will be made without both parties agreeing to it (student and graduate).
The Alumni network proves once again that its usefulness its solidarity, so don’t hesitate to rely on it.
Are you a graduate who lives abroad and would like to provide advice, comfort, or help our students?
Registering doesn’t commit you in any way, and you are not required to contact a student. Each student’s need will be explained to you on a case-by-case basis and the contact will only be made if you are in a position to help in that particular case.
Because you decided to move abroad, you know how reassuring it can be to have the support of others when you’re away from home.
Therefore, we thank you in advance for the support you can provide to these students, as well as for your solidarity with members of your school's network.
