International students

In the past few years Bonaparte has transformed into a bilingual society. Most of our events and communication happens twice, in both English and Dutch. Internal tournaments are held in both languages, the site is accessible to all and of course every evening we have debates for everyone!

However, not everything can be done in both languages. Luckily for you, we often switch to English. Examples of these are our general assemblies and workshops. For the workshops we do allow Dutchies to give a speech in Dutch if needed.

We reap the benefits of the change. You can make friends from around the world at Bonaparte, but you also get introduced to traditional Dutch student life. Moreover, we get better at competing on the big stage due to the larger influx of people.

In short, my dear international friend, be welcome! You will find it very pleasant!
