About Studying in Groningen

When I think about Groningen, I get reminded of all the moments I spent. And especially the wonderful people I met during my studies. I believe, my choice to study abroad, at the University of Groningen, it can be seen as one that you can’t regret in your life. First of all, the city of Groningen is the best for the student life. It offers choices for all kind of tastes for activities and nightlife i.e. always there is a musical event going on. Moreover, regarding the university and the courses offer you a high level of learning. In particular, in the master programs even they are intense because most of them are only one-year master programs, the knowledge and the educational training that you receive it is so useful for your future career. Thus, I am pleased with the academic stuff in our university that always doing their best to help you and make your student life easier. Indeed, the Dutch culture has differences than my culture. Bikes, bikes, and bikes, and the best exercise! My friends complained about the Dutch cuisine but the supermarket provides you everything to cook. However, my best spots of relaxing in Groningen with your friends are the amazing parks with the pure surrounding nature. I am a duck lover! As I said in the introduction, the most important part of my student life is the people I met, yes maybe I was studying many many hours or the weather was a bit disappointing me. Nevertheless, I created strong bonds with people that I met here who I will always remember their faces with a big smile and thus, be grateful about my choice to study at the University of Groningen.
