Radboud University is a comprehensive, internationally-oriented research university that aspires to be one of the best in Europe.

Mission

Radboud University challenges its students to actively participate in the academic community and trains them to be critical, independently-minded and engaged academics, who will take up responsible positions in a society which is becoming increasingly internationalised.

The University does not regard students as ‘consumers of education’ but as individuals who accept an active role and responsibility in both their academic education and personal development.

Internationalisation

Internationalisation plays a major role in the quality of our teaching, research and service provision. These are the three pillars on which we are building towards a leading position in the international academia. Our international campus reinforces the community spirit and provides facilities for students and top researchers from all over the world.

The university’s academic staff come from all over the world: 1 in 9 students at our university, and 1 in 5 first-year students, is an international student!

Education

Research and education at Radboud University cover a wide range of disciplines, and at Radboud we encourage you to share ideas with your colleagues from other faculties.

Radboud offers 14 Bachelor’s and over 35 Master’s programmes fully taught in English, and is host to 14 research institutes, many of which are world leading in their field- so your ideas have room to grow.

Student Life

Studying in Holland

The Netherlands is a small country with vast horizons. The first things that spring to mind when many people think of the Netherlands are probably cheese, bikes, tulips and clogs- but there is much more to offer.

The Dutch are known for their innovation and creativity, and their education system is recognised for its international character and problem-based learning style.

The Campus

Radboud University offers students wide range of world-class facilities. On campus you will find lecture rooms and research labs, the University Hospital, libraries, administrative offices, student organizations, cafés and cafeterias, a supermarket, and a book shop- just to name a few.

More so than that, the Radboud campus is known as the greenest campus in the Netherlands, in which a landscape of grass, paths, and trees form a cohesive whole together with the buildings.

City of Nijmegen

Radboud University is located in the oldest city in the Netherlands - Nijmegen.

Nijmegen is a true student city and is located in the heart of Europe, which means you will have plenty of opportunity to explore. A recent survey found that local people regard students as enriching their city and find them friendly and lively. The students themselves appreciate the green surroundings and the many opportunities that the city offers for relaxation and entertainment.

Radboud Sports Centre

At the Radboud Sports Centre, students, alumni and non-students are welcome 7 days a week! During our long opening hours, you can choose between at least 80 different sports for about 100 euros per year!
