Wageningen University & Research is active worldwide. Our students come from 100 home countries, our employees have 80 nationalities and our clients or partners are spread around the globe. As a result, the organisation is largely bilingual.
In situations where international staff or students are present, English is the preferred language. This requires a great deal from our Dutch staff: they must be prepared to communicate in English, and they must enjoy working in an environment where people from many cultures live alongside each other. Viewed from the other perspective, our international employees are supported while they adjust to Dutch culture and society.
