Learning to choose a degree programme

08 October 2014

In September, the Oriëntatietraject Noord (Orientation Programme North) began, intended for prospective students experiencing difficulties in choosing a degree programme. In an intensive programme, they learn to develop a better understanding of themselves, and of what they want do and are capable of. The programme is an initiative of Groningen schools, in collaboration with the University of Groningen and Hanze University of Applied Sciences.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
