Education PhD programmes During your PhD studies Training programme for PhD students

Introductory event

1 ECTS - ongoing

Welcome to Groningen! The Office of the Dean of Graduate Schools organizes an introductory event for new PhD students from all across the UG to get them acquainted with each other, the university and its surroundings.

The first day of this two-day event takes place at the Allersmaborg situated near the village of Ezinge in the Northern Dutch countryside. At 8:30am, a bus will take the participants from the Ossenmarkt in Groningen to the Allersmaborg. After dinner, at around 7:30pm, the bus will take you back to Groningen. The second day takes place in Groningen. In the morning we will continue the central part of the programme at the Van Swinderen Huys (Oude Boteringestraat 19). After lunch you will receive an introduction to the Faculty Graduate School where you are registered. Participation is free. All new PhD students should take part within the first three months of their project.
