18 March 2020

Dear reader,

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the University of Groningen has announced that all the University buildings are closed. This means that the Honours College building is also closed until further notice. During this period, all lectures and educational activities will be held online or might have to be rescheduled. We will do everything in our power to limit the negative impact of these measures.

Prospective Honours students have received information by the Honours coordinator of their faculty about the setup of the selection interviews. (An overview of the faculty coordinators can be found here ). The Welcoming Ceremony and the start of the first lectures are postponed until further notice.

Bachelor and Master Students have received or will receive information regarding the courses from the lecturer, their faculty coordinator or the Honours College. Please keep an eye on the Student Portal for updates.

For any practical or urgent questions, you can contact honours rug.nl . For all questions concerning your study progress, you can contact our study advisor Nick Nieuwenhuijsen . All current information about the corona measures at the University of Groningen can be found on www.rug.nl/corona .

Most important, take care of yourself and others.

Best wishes,

The Honours Team
