Education Exchange

Faculty exchanges

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.

Erasmus+ for non-EU/EEA countries: please visit the Erasmus+ ICM incoming student page.

Cancellation physical exchange, second semester of 2020/2021

All physical exchange programmes in the second semester of the 2020-2021 academic year at the University of Groningen have been cancelled. This applies to both incoming and outgoing students in exchange programmes and internship programmes.

Quickly changing circumstances and the unpredictability of the pandemic will result in a high degree of uncertainty in coming months regarding health situations, travel guidelines and the provision of on-site and online education at universities in the Netherlands and abroad.

The Executive Board has therefore taken the decision to cancel the exchange programmes together with the faculties and in close consultation with the other universities in the Netherlands. Although students may have anticipated it already, we do of course understand that this is still a huge disappointment.

For all outgoing exchange students we will try and arrange alternatives. The options will vary per student, faculty and programme, and could range from postponing the exchange, taking a minor, electives or a project course at the University of Groningen or following online education at a partner university.

International degree students are of course welcome. They can start or continue their Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at the University of Groningen.
