Radboud University Nijmegen

Strategically located in Europe, Radboud University is one of the leading academic communities in the Netherlands. It is a place with a personal touch, where top-flight education and research take place on a beautiful green campus, in modern buildings with state-of-the-art facilities.

The strength of the University lies in its personal approach. The campus is a close-knit community where academics from different faculties often work together in cross-disciplinary teams. All students receive individual guidance from top researchers and their studies are directly integrated with the work done at the University’s 20 research institutes. This offers unique opportunities to undergraduates, postgraduates, and doctoral candidates alike.

International network

Our academics are at the forefront of international research. This is one of the reasons why an increasing number of students and scientists from other countries choose to study and work in Nijmegen. We have over eighty nationalities on campus, both students and staff. The University has 86 bilateral agreements with other universities and 530 exchange agreements with EU partners (Erasmus programme). We were the initiator of the International Research Universities Network (IRUN), a cooperative venture involving ten European universities.

Nijmegen, a student-friendly city

Nijmegen is a true university city with lots of restaurants and cafés. The cultural centre LUX – the largest art house cinema in the Netherlands – also offers theatre, music, debate, and multimedia. The city is the oldest city in the Netherlands, dating back to Roman times. Today, it has some 180,000 inhabitants, 30,000 of whom are students. Students appreciate the attractive, green surroundings and the many opportunities that the city offers for relaxation and entertainment. It is a safe, friendly place to live and study.

A warm welcome

International students can expect to receive a warm welcome. The University’s International Office helps to organise practical matters such as arranging a visa and finding accommodation. In addition, the office organises many activities, introducing international students to the University, the city, its students and its other inhabitants.
