Welcome to the field – a welcome speech for those who have started their studies

At the beginning of the studies, the alumni’s welcome speech encourages the new student to cope with both career choices and especially studies. In the welcome speech, the alumni can reminisce about their own study time and share, for example, tips on what helped thems over the difficulties or challenges during their studies. We also want alumni work to become familiar to students from the beginning of their studies.

Alumni panels

In the alumni panels, Diak’s current students hear what all they can do after graduating with their degree. In the panel, alumni from different jobs talk about their own study time, career path and the challenges and joys of everyday life. Several panels will be held during the semester. Alumni panels open up a perspective on the student’s own career planning.

Welcome to working life – a speech for graduates

At the graduation ceremony, an alumnus gives a speech on the theme “Welcome to worklife!”. The graduate is invited to take a step into working life after their studies.

In the speech, you can, for example, share your own thoughts and expectations on the eve of graduation and bring encouragement, tips and greetings from working life based on your own experiences.
