First-year courses in the Dutch-taught bachelor

Please note that most of our first-year courses are given in Dutch. But since we offer an English-taught bachelor (Philosophy of a Specific Discipline), which starts in the second year of your studies, we want to be open to international students in the first year of their bachelor's too. Please contact the study advisor Anouk Labberté to see what can be arranged.

If you do sign up for the ‘Student for a Day’, you will attend a Dutch-taught course with our first-year students. The lecture will usually be followed by a seminar. In the seminar, contents of the lecture and previously studied texts are discussed. We will send you the texts and questions that will be discussed in order for you to be prepared (this is optional).

After class, you’ll have lunch with the other participants, a few first-year students and our study advisor. That is the moment to ask all questions about studying Philosophy in Groningen!


In order to participate a registration is needed. Registration is open until one week beforehand so please register in time! 

We will send you all information such as the programme and texts and questions to be prepared in the week before your visit.

The student entrance is on the side of the building, via the alley on the right hand side of the main entrance. You will be welcomed by our study advisor and taken to one of the lecture rooms in our building. The group is split into smaller groups for the seminars, and they will move to smaller rooms for the discussions.


You can direct any questions about Philosophy Student for a Day to Heidi Scholtz, the faculty coordinator.

We hope you enjoy your day as a philosophy student!
