Welcoming Ceremony

The University organizes an official Welcoming Ceremony for all new international guests at the beginning of both the first and second semester. All new international students should receive an invitation from the University in the first weeks of January. Attending the ceremony is free of charge; new international students are strongly advised to attend. The first upcoming welcoming ceremony will take place on 30 August 2018 from 1 p.m.

During the Welcoming Ceremony all new international students will be welcomed by distinguished speakers from the university, city hall and the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) in the Oosterpoort. Students can visit the information fair to learn more about what the university and city of Groningen have to offer (in terms of, for example, sports and cultural facilities, international student associations and university facilities) , join interactive workshops and celebrate the start of their time in Groningen with us with music, drinks and delicious food.

The Welcoming Ceremony is the perfect opportunity to meet fellow international students and staff of the university and its faculties!

ESN Introduction week

The ESN introduction week is definitely the best way to start off your time in Groningen. It's a fantastic way to meet Dutch and international students! Get to know your way around Groningen, find out where the best bars and clubs are, learn about Dutch history, watch a comedy act and learn everything about the transport (even how to ride a bike!).
