Radboud Certificate Programmes 2013/2014 | www.ru.nl/rcp
Radboud University Nijmegen offers special Radboud Certificate Programmes (RCPs) for international (exchange) students. These programmes consist of courses that have been clustered around themes that are of major importance and interest to today’s students. Since, for convenience, the schedules of the courses within the RCPs have already been aligned with one another, these programmes can be considered tailor-made options for international students. Research has shown that international alumni and current students of Radboud University find Certificate Programmes broaden their knowledge. In the interdisciplinary programmes students can take courses from other faculties than their own, learning different approaches to their subjects. Consequently, these value-added programmes boost students’ academic curricula. The RCPs consist of three to five coherent modules (approximately 20 ECTS). Each Certificate Programme has its own coordinator, who acts as the contact person for students who have registered for that programme. Students can enroll before the deadline of 1 June (1st semester) or 1 December (2nd semester) via the regular admission procedure for international students, which can be found on www.ru.nl/exchangestudents. After successful completion of a Certificate Programme students receive an official Radboud Certificate signed by the Rector Magnificus of Radboud University. The following Certificate Programmes have been compiled for the academic year 2013/2014. Although all the information in this brochure has been checked carefully, it may be subject to change.
