Studying in Groningen: What to expect and how to be prepared

While coming to live and study in a new city is an exciting new experience - we know that it may also be challenging. That is why the University of Groningen is offering prospective students the opportunity to get more pre- arrival information about preparing to come to the University.

One way we do this is by organising free webinars, in order to help you make the necessary arrangements before you arrive and address any questions you may have. We have webinars on a wide variety of different topics, ranging from the Admission process, Visas & Immigration to Student Life and much more.

Click on the specific webinar below to register. During the webinar, there will be a presentation and you can send in questions, which will be answered during the Q&A afterwards. The webinars are hosted on the Virtual UG platform.

Virtual UG

Virtual UG is the online platform where we host our webinars. You can find them on the "Events" tab. Once registered on this platform you can access all webinars. Next to our live webinars, which will be presented on the specified date and time, we also have on-demand webinars which you can watch at any given time. On the Virtual UG you can also find information about our Faculties, Admission, Accommodation, Life at UG and more.

Our Summer Selection

Over the summer holidays you may want to find out more information about the University of Groningen. In the table below, we have compiled a number of webinars that may be interesting for you. Click on the links to watch them!

These webinars have been broadcast already so you cannot use the chatbox, or ask the presenter any questions. If you have questions, feel free to email prospectives
