Meeting People

PON runs all of its activities in English and we welcome international PhDs. If you would like to meet up with one or two people before a larger event, contact PON and we can arrange ice-breakers with either PON board members or other PhDs (national and international) who can meet you in advance and introduce you to other people at our events.

Would you like to reach out to other PhDs yourself? Join and post in the PhDs in Nijmegen facebook group.

For more information about events going on in the city in English, go to the PON social events page or the Radboud University Nijmegen International Staff Facebook page, where you will find regular updates about local events and activities.


PON has created a Discord server! This is a community to ask fellow PhD candidates for advice or support, share memes, find people to grab a drink with, and more! You can join here. Please introduce yourself in the "#introductions" channel!
