For our international colleagues:

Join our upcoming orientation programmes

You are invited to participate in the orientation programme for new international Radboud staff: Dutch Day!
Radboud University offers a variety of Dutch Day programmes. These are tailored to address specific concerns facing your arrival at our University and in the Netherlands.




There are two upcoming programmes:

-         General Welcome and Dealing with the Dutch on 27 August 2015 (11:45 – 18:30 h.)
-         Campus Services on 15 September 2015 (14:00 – 18:30 h.)

General Welcome and Dealing with the Dutch (27 August 2015)

This Dutch Day will start with a picnic at Park Brakkenstein. Here we will also play introduction games. Our programme continues with a presentation about Radboud University in the Global Lounge, followed by a lecture on ‘Dealing with the Dutch’ and an intercultural quiz! The orientation will end, after a walk exploring the campus, at the university pub (Cultuurcafé) for a cosy informal meeting with drinks.  

Campus Services (15 September 2015)

‘Dutch Day: Campus Services’ will introduce you to some of the services available on campus, explain how to use HR programmes including those for tracking vacation and reimbursements and answer your questions. After the conclusion of the programme, there will be a campus tour that will conclude with a Happy Hour. 


Learn more about the programmes by visiting our website www.ru.nl/dutchday/. Here, you will also find a link to the registration form.
