ROC Nijmegen educates young people and adults for a career. As far as possible we do this in cooperation with business. In this way the student receives a practical grounding which is a good preparation for a future job.
ROC Nijmegen consists of different sectors, each of which provides different, related courses. In addition it has a branch in Boxmeer, MBO College de Maasvallei, and one in Druten, MBO College Land van Maas en Waal. There are also regional locations concerned solely with adult education.
Choosing ROC Nijmegen means choosing the future: there is a great shortage of well-trained employees in practical occupations. In addition many of our courses are very compatible with further study at higher vocational education level.
