Radboud University: a leading academic community

Renowned for its green campus in the oldest city of the Netherlands, Radboud University enrols over 19,000 students in more than 100 study programs of which 8 Bachelor's tracks and 37 Master's courses are fully taught in English. There are excellent opportunities to do PhD research. The university has an international focus, with more than 10% of students coming from abroad.

Small-scale classes and room for personal development

The University has adopted a student-oriented teaching style. Characteristics of this approach are instructions in study groups, the organization of courses as a series of study tasks, and the room for individual responsibility and independence. Radboud University encourages students to carry out research themselves, under supervision of a personal tutor and, above all, to look further than the confines of their own discipline. The Dutch university information guide 'Keuzegids Universiteiten' lists Radboud University as the best general university in the Netherlands.

Nobel Prize for Physics

Two professors connected to Radboud University won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2010. Professor Konstantin Novoselov and Professor Andre Geim won the prize for their research into the properties of grapheme, the thinnest material in the world.
