Off to a good start
Welcome to our Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies. As a first year student it might be difficult to find your way on campus and navigate our education systems. To help you off to a good start, here you will find an overview of the most important things that you will face as a new student at our faculty.
At our faculty students learn to reflect on philosophical and idealogical questions. We educate our students to become critical and engaging academic professionals, who can take on responsible positions within our society with a conscious understanding and perspective on academic and social themes.
A new study means finding your way in a new university, a new study and all kinds of different online systems. Here you can already get acquainted with the digital systems of our university, our facilities on campus and the vibrant student life of Nijmegen.
Student Information Point (STIP)
If you can't find the answer to one of your questions on the website or if something goes wrong, students of our faculty can contact our Student Information Point (STIP PTRS).
International Orientation Week for exchange and (pre-)master students
At the beginning of each semester there is an Orientation week especially for our new international exchange and Master's students. This Orientation week includes fun activities such as a campus tour, city tour, sports events and parties. By participating you will quickly get to know both Nijmegen and Radboud University, but also make new friends from all around the world!
Save the date! The next International Orientation for exchange and (Pre) Master's students will be organised from 21 - 28 August. Learn more about the programme scheduled for this week.
Are you curious about where you will be studying? In this video our student Froukje will give you a tour around our campus.
