Radboud University is a truly international institution with students from all over the world. There are many international courses and programmes in which Dutch and foreign students participate together. The different backgrounds of those who study and teach at the University help to reinforce our common objective: to achieve the highest possible standard of education and research. Radboud University offers a full range of more than 250 courses in English for exchange students at all faculties.
And once again Radboud University has been chosen as the best traditional general university of the Netherlands! You can find more information about why here.
Registration, course information
International exchange students will find detailed information on application, registration, course information and accommodation. Students who come to Nijmegen as part of an exchange programme can register online and have to upload the application forms.
At the beginning of each semester there is an Orientation especially for our new international exchange and Masters' students which is organised by Radboud International in cooperation with Radboud International Students (RIS), consisting of student coordinators and student mentors. Depending on the semester, this Orientation includes fun activities such as: tours of the university and the city, sporting events, parties, etc. By participating in this programme you will quickly get to know both Nijmegen and Radboud University, and make new friends from around the world!
Nijmegen has a student organisation that organises social events for all international and internationally minded students called ESN Nijmegen. Not only exchange students but also Bachelor's and Master's students can become a member. Like their facebook to keep updated on the activities they will organise for international students during the year. ESN Nijmegen is part of ESN. Have a look at their website.
Our university strives for the highest quality, also with our services. This has even been acknowledged by the European Commission, who stated that Radboud University has 'an impressive range of activities for outgoing and incoming students and a high sense of concern for the quality'.
A lot of International students have already studied at Radboud University before you. So before you leave for Nijmegen it might be a good idea to get into contact with one of the Radboud Alumni at your university.
Radboud University likes to think of its international students and guests as ambassadors and sets great store by maintaining its ties with international students after their departure. It has a unique International Alumni Network for its former exchange students, those who came from abroad for a Bachelor's and/or Master's programme as well as PhD candidates. Please have a look at the Radboud International Alumni facebook page.
