Are you a foreign student following some courses or doing an internship of physics or astronomy at the Radboud University of Nijmegen? Marie Curie can offer you a place to meet other physics students and make your experience of studying in Nijmegen more memorable. Click here to sign up for Marie Curie.

Marie Curie is the study association of physics and astronomy in Nijmegen. It is a flourishing association that has a lot to offer to her members, which are students as well as professors. Almost all students of physics and astronomy are members of the association, and not only because we provide a discount on study books. We also have an association room in the 5-wing where you can sit during the breaks and order coffee, tea, soda and toasted sandwiches. There are newspapers, board games and tables to sit and study while listening to music you can request yourself. It is also a room to chat and drink a beer with fellow students during the weekly association gathering, every Thursday from 16:00 to 20:45.

A lot of activities are organised yearly by the members, such as lunch lectures of (inter)national researchers, excursions to research institutes, camping trips and variety shows. The character of the association is depicted in our magazine, the "Impuls", which is released four times a year. Fans of sports can join the Marie Curie team in the largest yearly relay-race of the world: the Batavierenrace.

Besides these activities, we also take great pride in the international study tour we organise. This trip takes 3 weeks and is organised yearly, but it takes months of preparation. During these weeks several cities, universities and physics research institutes are visited. Destinations of these trips have been for example Canada, Japan, Spain, England, South Korea, Italy and Scandinavia.

You can send an e-mail to for more information on the student membership of the association. You can also visit us at our board room, HG00.528, and ask for someone of the board of Marie Curie.
