International Students

Navigators Internationals Wageningen seeks to create spaces where students can belong together in a Christ centered community by sharing meals and discovering life with God. We currently meet every week on Wednesday evenings – twice a month in small groups throughout Wageningen and twice a month all together.

Andrea had quite an international life starting her studies in Wageningen and felt right at home there. She loves to see the boundaries and prejudices fall away in intercultural settings, which she sees as a little piece of heaven. Andrea is married to Marcel and lives in Ede, though her heart is still in Wageningen.
