    The Bachelor's programme in English is highly regarded and very varied

    Hi! I’m Charlotte, 21 years-old, and I am currently doing my third year in the BA program of English Language and Culture. I was born and raised in Groningen, making me a true stadjer as well as a student. When I don’t study, I enjoy reading, cycling, and going to the gym. English language and culture has always intrigued me. Additionally, my interest for reading, literature, and history played an immense role in me choosing English Language and Culture as my study. The program has a great reputation and is very diverse, making the degree incredibly interesting. The course really offers interesting aspects for everyone, no matter whether you prefer literature or linguistics. Since it is a fairly small study, you get to know most of your classmates very quickly, which makes the atmosphere very positive, homely, and safe.

  • Testimonial van Robin van Gammeren

    Go do something that you're passionate about. So as long as you make sure you're doing something you really love, the rest will come!

    My name is Robin van Gammeren, a third-year student of English Language and Culture. I am also a student ambassador for this programme, which means I try to help prospective students like you understand what it is like to be studying English.

    Not only do I know a lot about the programme itself: since I was part of the board of the study association of English last year (NUTS) I know all about the social life of English students as well! Because that too is part of your experience if you choose to start studying English in Groningen.

    Why English?

    Great question! When I was still in high school, I struggled with the same question as many high school students do now: what do I want to study? A lot of factors come into play when you’re trying to find the answer to this question, but I decided that it was most important that I would choose something that I really liked. And that’s how I ended up with English: I love literature, I love the language and the diversity of it. And if you feel that way too, then English is a great fit. Just being immersed in the language and learning about all its characteristics is so great about this study, and I haven’t regretted my choice for one second. Studying English, you will acquire a lot of useful skills. Not only will your level of English be top notch before you know it, you’ll also start to understand the world a bit better. After all, English is a global language!
