About stuying in Groningen
Groningen is such a nice and cozy city! It is small but on the other hand, you can find everything you need. The student life is fantastic, because you can attend several social activities during the whole year. The Dutch people are very open to internationals and there has never been a language or cultural barrier at all. All the faculties as well as the UMCG are very well equipped and have high quality professors, who are willing to help with anything that we need. I totally encourage all students to have this amazing experience which can enrich their professional and personal life!
