Bachelor's Open Day

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 througout Groningen. 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 15 October - 09:00 onwards. Registration is required as places are limited. 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) and in German (Alles über das Studium in Groningen). 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, so plan your route in advance!

Programme of the Bachelor's Open Day

You can put together your own schedule, so you determine to a large extent what your day will look like. You can choose from the following programme components:

  • Presentations on Bachelor's degree programmes
    All Bachelor’s degree 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.

  • Presentations for international prospective students
    During the Bachelor's Open Day there will be several sessions especially for international prospective students with information on studying in Groningen, applying for accommodation and admission requirements; it is strongly recommended to attend any of these sessions. These sessions are offered in English (All about studying in Groningen) and in German (Alles über Studieren und Leben in Groningen).
