About studying in Groningen
Before moving to Groningen, my friends had sung the praises of the RUG. For instance, a student city with highly educated people. After I arrived, I found it was not an exaggeration. People here are nice and friendly. You are able to enjoy an independent research environment. Almost every citizen can speak fluent English.

Groningen is a peaceful and beautiful city as well. Although the RUG is in the north of the Netherlands, I never felt boring or isolated here. The student organizations such as ESN always organized interesting activities. Furthermore, I really appreciated coordinators of the faculty, they were always there for me when I needed them. All of these were helpful in getting me involved in the city.

Yaping Wang was born and grew up in Shanghai, China. Before moving to Groningen she obtained a Bachelor’s degree in International economic law at Shanghai University of Political Science and Law in China. She has participated in various volunteer events in the past and has been awarded for outstanding performance in many events, such as the 2010 WORLD EXPO and the 2008 Olympic Games. She enjoys travelling. She is now working at a Law Firm in Shanghai and willing to share her experience in the Netherlands with prospective students.
