Information for new pre-master students

The time has come: you are starting your pre-master at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences! To help you get started, you can find practical information here. This information is meant for students who are admissible (according to the admission board) to one of the pre-master programmes of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences.

As the corona measures are still (partly) in place, there may be some uncertainties about how the 2020-2021 academic year will progress. To keep informed, please check this page . If we have any updates, we will post them there.


The University of Groningen organizes a welcoming ceremony for all international students. This ceremony will take place on Thursday, August 27, 2020.

In September there will be a faculty introduction. Due to the Corona crisis we don't know yet in what form this will take place. We hope to give you an update in the summer. You will receive an email with the invitation for the introduction at the faculty.

Registering for courses

You have to enroll for your courses every semester. You are automatically enrolled for your exams. You can view the registration periods for courses on the Student Portal. See the tutorial below for a guide how to enroll for your courses. For semester 1a you are pre-enrolled for your courses. Are you a pre-master Real Estate Studies student? Then you have to choose between Reflecting HGP and Inleiding Recht. Since you have to make this choice yourself, you do have to enroll for these courses yourself. Are you planning on starting in September, but you have not been enrolled for your courses yet? Please contact
