The Philosophy faculty is more than an academic institution. Apart from being a place of captivating topics and inspiring discussions is this faculty a place where fellow students become friends and a really confusing building becomes a place of trust, support and gezelligheid.
Giorgi Tadumadze (Georgia)
Having studied Philosophy in Tbilisi, Georgia, where the philosophy tradition is mainly shaped through authors from the continental school, and having attended lectures of numerous German-speaking professors of philosophy, I wanted to try a quite different, namely, analytic approach to Philosophy.

Sebastián Cabezas (Chile)
The first thing any new student at the Faculty of Philosophy of the UG is likely to observe is the small-scale character of the Faculty. The environment you will have here is quite familiar (gezellig, as Dutch people would say), since the number of students is relatively low in comparison to other Faculties.

After having finished my Bachelor Degree at the Université de Toulouse Le Mirail in France, I felt the deep need to explore new horizons, be they cultural or philosophical.
