PSL Alumni (PSLA) is the joint association for alumni from all PSL schools.
The institutions that make up PSL have a long history and strong identity, giving them large networks of former students organized into the various alumni associations.
To gather all these students and graduates under a single banner and support PSL’s transformation into a top international university, these associations joined forces in 2012, while still maintaining their separate existence, to form the PSL Alumni community.
All graduates of PSL courses and members of a PSL institution alumni association are also members of PSL Alumni.
