The VSNU Education Festival will take place on Thursday 24 May 2018. This year’s festival will be held on the campus of Wageningen University & Research, as it is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The Festival will start at 10:00h and conclude with networking drinks beginning at 16:30h.

Academic education is developing at a rapid pace. Interested in learning how universities are working to improve the quality of academic education, each and every day? Visit the Education Festival to exchange thoughts with students, lecturers and support staff.
