A short stay abroad can be a lifelong advantage. Our exchange programmes, non-degree courses or summer schools give students a taste of what life in Groningen is like.
Already a RUG student? Please look on the Student Portal for more information on studying abroad.
These programmes vary from one week to six months. It may even lead to the decision to follow one of our degree programmes. The University of Groningen has exchange agreements with universities all over the world and offers a wide range of courses for exchange students. These courses are mainly for students who are in the final year of their Bachelor's programme and for students who are taking a Master's programme. Most exchange students stay for a period of three to twelve months. Exchange periods are September-February and February-July.
To study in Groningen as an exchange student, your university needs to have an exchange agreement with the University of Groningen. The exchange co-ordinator of your university will inform you about the available courses and any selection procedures.
Exchanges are often arranged through the different faculties. More specific information on exchange opportunities can be found there.
Erasmus+: As most Erasmus+ agreements are faculty-specific, please get in touch with the international office of your home university or faculty to learn more about your opportunities. In Groningen, the Faculty Exchange Offices are in charge of the admission procedures for incoming exchange students. They will be able to provide you with more information.
