Job Opportunities

If you want to create your professional network and get a job position within the university understanding and speaking Dutch is absolutely necessary.

At the University of Groningen, except for academic positions, you need  to have fluency in Dutch. The level required in Dutch depends on the position, but an intermediate level (B1) is mandatory. This is because a lot of rules, regulations, procedures, directions and systems you will work with are mainly in Dutch.

Please note: as partner of Dual Career Support you have access to the UG internal vacancies as of the moment that your are registered as a partner. For more information please contact dualcareer
