Internationalisation

Cultures

Students from all over the world are studying at Wageningen University. The university is known for its international character as well as our introduction week. The AID is for international students the best start of their student-life! So, do not hesitate to sign up!

During almost all program parts of the AID English will be spoken. Furthermore, there are some amazing program parts which will focus on the cultural differences. For example Crossing borders, this is an evening where cultures from all over the world are represented. International organisations and students will show you the best of their home country, culture and religion. There is a big chance that you will find an organisation that meets your interests and that you can join for the rest of your time in Wageningen!


Religion

People with many different religious backgrounds are living in Wageningen. There is a silence room on campus that you can visit if you want to, during the AID and after. 

Christianity is the main religion in the Netherlands. Christian (student)organisations organize a church service on Sunday morning for AID participants. The church service is open for everyone who is interested, regardless of your religious background. So, do not hesitate to join our religious morning during the AID!

There are a lot of other religious groups in Wageningen, you will get to know them during the AID as well. Furthermore, remember that you do not have to join all program parts if this is not in accordance with your religion.

Food
For students who want to eat halal food, we suggest to choose for a vegetarian diet. Because you eat at a lot of different associations during the week, we cannot guarantee all meat is halal. 

Students who want to eat special food from their home country have to buy this food themselves.
