Bachelor's Open Day
For whom is the Bachelor's Open Day intended?
The Bachelor's Open Day is meant for prospective students who to a large extent know what kind of study programme they want to do, and who would like to receive more specific information on one or more programmes. The presentations will take place at various locations. Students will therefore be able to visit a total of four different programmes.
Registration is required
You can register for the Bachelor's Open Day of Friday 12 November 2021 from 1 October onwards. We strongly advise all international students to attend the introductory presentation on studying in Groningen, applying for accommodation and admission requirements. These sessions are offered in English (All about studying in Groningen, accommodation and admission) and in German (Alles über das Studium in Groningen, Wohnungssuche und Bewerbung). Please register for any of these presentations, as places are limited. Put together a personal programme for the day in the registration module and receive your entry tickets by email. Keep in mind that you might have to travel between locations; use the map in the registration module to plan your route in advance.
Time schedule and programme of the Bachelor's Open Day
All Bachelor’s programmes will be presented to the prospective students during the Bachelor's Open Day. The day is divided into four time slots: 10.00-11.00, 12.00-13.00, 14.00-15.00 and 16.00-17.00. Most faculties will present their programmes in two or three of these sessions. Provided that there is enough space, all presentations will take place in the buildings where the programmes are located. You will receive information about the study programme, you can attend trial lectures and speak to teachers and students. And of course, you can meet people to whom you might be sitting next to in class in the future. In between presentation sessions, there is enough time to travel to the next location, have lunch or visit an information fair.
