Education Frequently asked questions Admission, registration and deregistration Admission and application Matching aan de RUG

What is matching and why do I need to participate in it?

It is stated by law that prospective students must be given the opportunity to participate in matching after registering for a study without selection. Too many students terminate their studies in the first year, often because they did not have a good idea of what the study entailed. By participating in matching activities, you get a realistic idea of the study and you have the possibility to check your expectations. Does the study that I have chosen suit me? And do I fit in with the study? Does the programme match my interests and abilities?

For some study programmes of the faculties of Behavioral and Social Sciences, Medical Sciences, Law, Science and Engineering and Philosophy, matching is mandatory to be admitted. More information on the matching procedure at your faculty can be found on the matching webpage.
