Radboud University Nijmegen is one of the leading academic communities in the Netherlands. Renowned for its green campus in the oldest city of the Netherlands, it has nine faculties and enrols over 17.500 students in 107 study programmes (40 Bachelor's and 67 Master's programmes).
Apart from offering a stimulating learning environment, the University has invested in a modern and up-to date infrastructure and facilities. Several new buildings have been completed in recent years. One of these buildings, the Gymnasion, houses the University's sports facilities.
Radboud University Nijmegen is a student-oriented research university where individual responsibility, independence and small-sized classes are fundamental to an educational approach in which student motivation is a key feature. Many disciplines use the model of 'student Activated Education', characterised by instruction in study groups, by the organisation of existing courses as a series of study tasks, and by the creation of room for individual responsibility and independence.
Several factors make it increasingly easy for foreign students to work and study in Nijmegen: the growing number of programmes taught in English, the English library, and state-of-the art computer facilities.
Radboud University is a welcoming, forward-looking, research-based centre of learning that covers the full range of academic disciplines. All the University buildings, lecture rooms, facilities and the University Hospital are situated together on the former Heyendael estate.
The University Library covers the whole campus. Apart from the Central Library there are six further locations. The campus libraries are not just places to look for books but also to find a quiet place to study, to meet in groups, to check e-mail, to ask advice from an information specialist, or to enjoy a chat in the lounge. To sum up: the library offers a complete study environment.
Everyone can visit the libraries on university campus. For students most of the services are free of charge. Your student card works as a readers pass. You need it to borrow books. You can find information about the books and journals available in the University Library in the online catalogue on the Internet.
Students at Radboud University are very eager to promote international contacts. They also realise that when foreign students come to Nijmegen it is essential for them to feel at home. Foreign students are therefore cordially invited to participate on a fully equal basis in a number of student organisations.
An academic study should naturally include general, social and cultural education, but also plenty of opportunities for relaxation. These can be found at one of the many social clubs! The social clubs atmosphere and activities are quite diverse, so there is something for everyone. All the Nijmegen social clubs are mixed; the debating societies may be either male- or female-only.
Most studies have a study- or faculty club. Becoming a member of such a club is a pleasant and efficient way to deepen and broaden ones knowledge. In addition to this, it is an easy way to get to know ones fellow students. As a member of a study- or faculty club you can often get study books, or go on excursions, at a discount. In addition, there are study trips to go on, and seminars and lectures to attend. Of course there are also parties, get-togethers and galas on a regular basis.
For those who are interested in politics or ideology, there is every opportunity to find the club of their choice In Nijmegen, there are four ideological associations that together have some 200 members of various religious convictions. Socialising, making friends and doing things together are most important. Besides this, the members feel it is important to give meaning and expression to their religious convictions.
Do you like to tango? Would you like to make films, write for cabaret or play in an orchestra? All these things are possible in a cultural society. There are over 15 cultural societies, ensuring that you can get all the cultural enjoyment you need.
