Waarom aan de Radboud Universiteit?

By choosing Historical Studies at Radboud University you will study in the oldest city of the Netherlands. Founded by the Romans as one of their headquarters on the borders of their empire (Noviomagus: New Market), Nijmegen became an imperial stronghold in the Middle Ages. The enchanting site of the former imperial palts (Valkhof) on the river Waal (the main branch of the Rhine) still recalls this extraordinary past.
