Are you looking for information on our Bachelor programmes? Come to the Open Day of the University of Groningen on Friday, 7 November 2014. All 47 Bachelor programmes will be there to present themselves to you in the exciting city centre of Groningen.

For whom is the Open Day intended?

The Open Day in November is meant for prospective students who want to learn more about the broad range of Bachelor programmes the University of Groningen has to offer. The difference with the Open Day in January is that during the Open Day in November, the presentations on the programmes are shorter and contain general as well as basic information. The presentations will take place at a few locations throughout the city centre, all within walking distance of each other. Please note that these locations are not always the ones you will be studying at in the future.

Registration is required

For the Open Day registration through the website is required. You will be able to put your own schedule together after which entry tickets will be emailed to you. Registration starts at the 1st October 2014.

Time schedule and programme of the day

Presentations Bachelor programmes (entry ticket required)

All Bachelor programme presentations will last half an hour and will provide prospective students with basic information about the courses. Any questions about the structure, the entry requirements, suitable Master programmes after graduating and future job prospects will be touched upon. Every hour a new round of presentations begins. The first round starts at 9.00 am and the last at 17.00 pm.

The programme also includes presentations on topics that are related to studying in Groningen such as the difference between HBO and WO, Honours College, University College, student life in Groningen, the financial aspects of studying, student housing and the possibilities to study abroad. Please note that most of these presentations will be offered in Dutch.

Workshops on study choice (open ticket required)

During the Open Day we offer workshops on study choice for those prospective students who find it difficult to make a decision as to which Bachelor programme to choose. The workshops focus on the selection process. Although this workshop may not immediately provide you with a clear answer as to which study programme to choose, it may help you to take your study choice to a next level. Please note that these workshops will be offered in Dutch.

Each cluster of Bachelor programmes has their own information market. Study advisors, teachers and students will be available between 9.30 am and 16.30 pm to answer any questions you might have. Where you can find these markets will be announced in the information you will receive upon registering.

Other information markets (free admission)
