The Netherlands as a study destination is something new for American students. However, we see more and more interest from American students to come study in the Netherlands. And that is logical: There is no language barrier; The Netherlands is one of the safest and the most English proficient country in the world for non native speakers. In addition, our quality of education is comparable with Ivy League universities in the US, while the tuition fees are much lower.
Currently there are 78 American students studying at the University of Groningen and they pursue a variety of bachelor’s and master’s programmes across our 11 faculties. Popular subject areas include Arts and Humanities, Economics and Business, and Science and Engineering.

Information for applicants in the United States of America
My name is Allison, I chose to pursue my master’s in Applied Linguistics at the University of Groningen to explore a new culture at a top-notch institution. Groningen is truly a student’s dream city. The international community ensures making friends from all over the world and there is a place for any hobby. From yoga, to salsa dancing, to photography, I can easily find an outlet for all of my interests in an English-speaking setting (even while trying to learn Dutch!). All the while of course between my studies. With a friendly and safe “small-city” vibe, students of all levels can find their place in Groningen.
