Overview

The University of Groningen is home to over 30,000 students - of which 3,800 are international - who are welcomed into an inspiring and stimulating atmosphere. Teaching in the Bachelor’s degree programs is characterized by small groups and encouragement of student input, leaving ample room for discussion, the generation of ideas and the creation of knowledge. In a work environment that rewards quality and achievement, the university offers balanced study and research paths that vary in intensity to encourage everyone to develop their individual talents.

What will probably be most striking when entering Groningen is its youthful population. The city enjoys a bustling reputation, while retaining a safe community character. Studying at the University of Groningen is more than just attending lectures and passing exams. Groningen has a rich student life, in which students can become a member of numerous student associations. Need a place to stay? In Groningen, students live throughout the city and among the locals or ‘Stadjers’ as they call themselves. As such there is no campus or campus accommodation, but to help international students find housing, the University of Groningen cooperates with the Housing Office.
