Giorgi Tadumadze (Georgia)

Having studied Philosophy in Tbilisi, Georgia, where the philosophy tradition is mainly shaped through authors from the continental school, and having attended lectures of numerous German-speaking professors of philosophy, I wanted to try a quite different, namely, analytic approach to Philosophy.

The first thing any new student at the Faculty of Philosophy of the UG is likely to observe is the small-scale character of the Faculty. The environment you will have here is quite familiar (gezellig, as Dutch people would say), since the number of students is relatively low in comparison to other Faculties.

Efthymis Panourgias (Greece)

The reason for choosing this specific faculty was that it is considered one of the best faculties in Europe and the best in the Netherlands. I have to admit...(continue reading Efthymis's story...)

Ingrid Pendaries (France)

After having finished my Bachelor Degree at the Université de Toulouse Le Mirail in France, I felt the deep need to explore new horizons, be they cultural or philosophical. Groningen was a great place for me to do so. I easily found a room in a student house through the Housing Office. Living in such a place has not only allowed me to quickly become fluent in English, but also to make great Dutch and international friends. Although I was away...(continue...)

Abraham Sapién Córdoba (Mexico)

I did a bachelor in Philosophy at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and I really wanted to do a semester abroad. When I was looking for an exchange programme, I found that there was an agreement between my faculty and Groningen’s university. I wanted not only to study in a different language but also see a different culture, so I thought...(continue...)
