Outgoing exchange / UCG

UCG’s Study Abroad Program enables students to spend their 5th semester at one of our exchange partners across the world with the credits achieved counting towards their UCG degree. As an exchange student, you remain enrolled full-time at UCG and therefore continue to pay your usual tuition fees to the University of Groningen. Moreover, all students will receive a scholarship to cover part of the study abroad costs from either from the European Commission or the University of Groningen.

Not only are there agreements between UofG and other international universities, but also between individual programmes and specializations in Groningen and abroad. In addition to the existing exchange options UCG is also busy setting up collaborative projects with like-minded institutions abroad.

  • More information about the options for exchange and application procedures can be found on My University - Study Abroad (RUG s-number needed to log-in)
  • More information about registration with partner universities can be found on Nestor - Exchange Class of 2018 (RUG s-number needed to log-in).

In May each year all 1st years students are invited to the first exchange workshop. The workshop is set up to inform students about the exchange possibilities offered by the University of Groningen, eligibility requirements, application procedures, scholarship programs, partner universities, and credit and grade conversion.

In September/October each year the 2nd year students who plan to go on exchange will join follow-up exchange workshops and fairs and indicate in which field (based on their major) they would like to study abroad.

In November each year applications open for exchange in the 3rd year.

Feel free to make an appointment with the UCG's Exchange Officer if you would like to talk about this option. Also note that your UCG academic tutor would be the person to advice you what destinations/courses would suit your personal programme best.
