Other courses, in English

The Faculty of Spatial Sciences offers a number of regular courses in English. Exchange students are welcome to choose from these courses, provided they can take the course in its regular form, including the regular examination procedure. Courses taught at the MSc (Master’s) level are only available for students that can submit a photocopy of a BSc (Bachelor's) diploma.

The Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen offers the so-called "Dutch Studies" programme. A number of their courses are open to exchange students from other Faculties. These courses, all at the BSc (Bachelor's) level, are included below as well.

Course information, lecture dates and times and exam dates and times are subject to change. Most courses run in the teaching weeks of the semester block specified in the left column.

The two courses offered by the International School of Spatial Policy Studies, Spatial Problems and Spatial Policies: The Dutch Experience and Spatial Planning Group Project, both offered in Bachelor’s and Master’s versions, are included in the overview.
