What happens at LATITUD?
Membership will currently give you access to all LATITUD network (social media and group chats) so that you can keep up to date with events, ask questions or request support.

come to the Netherlands from Latin America.

participate in! LATITUD is lauded for its vibrant and intimate social
scene which is created by the hard work of creative members!

events to expand your horizons and career workshops by leaders of
companies are all organized by the professional committee. If you
want to get yourself ahead in the life that waits for you after your
studies the professional committee is a must join!
Life in a new country can be daunting and the best things hidden in
plain sight; fear not, the community committee is here to help bridge
the cultural gap between Latin America and the Netherlands. From
practical advice to pre-departure events the community committee is
here to valiantly guide you through life in the Netherlands.
Alumni members will customarily remain within the LATITUD network
and share their experience with the newer members when the
opportunity presents itself. The long-term vision of LATITUD is to
become a brand that older and newer members alike will be proud to
be part of. We value contact with all members past and present and
believe there are considerable benefits to be had on both sides!
The board consists of a group of especially dedicated members that
give direction to and foster collaboration within LATITUD. The board
changes yearly and consists of the president, the treasurer and the
three committee leaders.
