Between cultures

Adjusting to a new culture may be difficult. To promote the connection between all students at WUR, we offer workshops and training courses.

New in Wageningen? You are not alone. Thousands of students from different parts of the Netherlands and the world come here every year to start their academic journey. A journey that will also become a personal one.

Feeling lonely, homesick or lost in a new culture and education system can be challenging. Many students struggle. However, WUR will help you to learn to navigate these moments.

How can we help you?


Are you experiencing loneliness or isolation, we would like to hear from you.
The group training course Settling into Life @WUR*will start when we have enough (6-10) participants.
Send us an e-mail or subscribe to the interested list and we will contact you.
