International Students

Synergy is the Study Assocation for (International) Business Administration, Business Economics and Law and Management students. As these are English-taught programmes there are many nationalities among our members. On this page you can find useful information for international students!

Synergy organises around 150 formal and informal activities a year. The informal activities are a fun way to get to know other students and have a great time together. With the formal activities Synergy strives to brigde the gap between theory and practice. All members are welcome at the activities and the spoken language is English! This is also the case for the study trips. We strive to organise all activities in English, but unfortunately sometimes this is not possible with external parties. If this is the case, the sentence 'Unfortunately, this event will be held in Dutch' is added to the event. 

Buddy Programme
The Radboud University wants to make the transition to Nijmegen as smooth as possible, and that is why the Nijmegen School of Management offers incoming students the buddy programme! They pair new international students with current students who provide a helping hand in the process of becoming a real citizen of Nijmegen, adjusting to the student life as well as first friendships. The buddy will also be there to answer questions. Are you interested? Click here for more information. Questions about the buddy programme can be sent to
