Study Start Events

Due to the fact that the exchange for incoming students will not take place Fall 2020 - due to the Covid-19 - we also had to cancel our Introduction programme for Fall 2020. The new programme for Spring 2021 you can find below - but is still with reservation !

A good start is essential for study success and enjoying your time in Groningen. In order to make the most out of your stay in Groningen, it is necessary to get induced to your new (academic) environment. In the week before courses start, the university organizes various activities that will help you arranging  practical matters and finding your way around the university and the city. We expect all students to attend these compulsory events. When booking your plane ticket and/or accommodation, please make sure to arrive in Groningen in time!

Study Start Events / Spring semester

Thursday, 28 January 2021 Online in the morning

Faculty Study Start Event/Get Started: during this online event we will provide you with a lot of practical information about studying at FEB and you will meet your mentor for the first time. Find more detailed programme information here.

► High recommended to attend since missing out on the Faculty Study Start Event/Get Started means a bad study start! Starts at 9.00.

If you are unable to attend the Get Started Event, and you have a valid reason, you should inform the Exchange Office well in advance! You should realize that you will have a more difficult study start and arriving late may also have consequences for course participation since most lecturers do not allow late-arrivals to join the tutorial groups once these have started.
