Social Events

Radboud Summer School is more than an academic event, it is a unique opportunity to meet other international students, researchers and professionals  from various academic disciplines and countries. During our social activities you will be able to learn more about the beautiful city of Nijmegen and you will get the chance to increase your (inter)national network.

We hope/look forward to welcome you on our beautiful campus in Nijmegen in 2022.

Below you will find the social events for the summer of 2022.

Sunday: Welcome reception

We would love to welcome you to our university campus on the first day. After you have had the chance to drop off your belongings at your new home-for-a-week (or two), we invite you for some drinks and snacks at our Welcome Reception. It is the perfect opportunity to introduce yourself to your fellow students and to finally meet your course leader(s) and the Radboud Summer School team. Free of charge.
