ESN_banner

About the workshop:
Internationalisation cannot be ignored, especially since more and more international students are arriving in Groningen. Therefore, integration between these students and Dutch students is very important, but is also seen as a challenge. In this workshop, these challenges will be assessed and interesting case studies will be given in which you seek to come up with innovative solutions to improve integration and teamwork among international and Dutch students.

About the organisation:
ESN Groningen is part of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN). Its aim is to ensure that international students have the best possible time that they can in Groningen. Throughout the year, over 150 social, cultural, integration, travel and sports events are organised, as well as a huge introduction week every semester to make sure that all new students in Groningen have the best possible kick-off to their time in the city.

About the instructors:
Adiëlla Boot has been following bilingual education and has been involved in international surroundings ever since high school. This was followed by a study at the RUG university where 70% of the students came from abroad, an exchange study programme in Colombia and an internship at the embassy in Panama. Integration was essential for making these experiences successful. However, integration is not always to be taken for granted and poses several challenges, which she as President and the rest of the board aim at tackling at the Erasmus Student Network (ESN).

Angela Hurink has always been interested in meeting people from all over the world and learning about their cultures. As a result of traveling, studying abroad and being involved in ESN for more than two years, her social circle consists of Dutch but also lots of international friends from all over the world. From friends but also from her own experiences, she has come to realize that it is not always easy to integrate in a country because of multiple reasons. ESN believes this is a very important aspect of being abroad and that is why as the Integration Coordinator of ESN Groningen, Angela concerns herself with this issue and anything related to it.
