Radboud University

Education and Research

Education and Research for tomorrow’s solutions

We want to get the best out of science, others, and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 22,000 students and 5,000 employees who work and study at Radboud University.

We seek each other out

At our 7 faculties and 15 research institutes, academic researchers from approximately 100 countries explore virtually all scientific domains. Our open and personal culture challenges researchers and lecturers from different disciplines to look beyond the boundaries of their own field, to seek each other out, and to collaborate.

  • In 2019, ten Master’s programmes were chosen as the best in the Netherlands.
