About us Faculty of Spatial Sciences Education Information for new students at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences Zachte knip

Non-FSS students

If you want to use the Zachte Knip arrangement, you have to re-register in Studielink as a Bachelor’s student or pre-master student with your current university and apply for the Master’s degree programme with the University of Groningen. The deadline for this is 1 August at the latest. The Student Administration of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences will check during August 2021 if students who registered for a Master’s degree programme in Studielink fulfilled the criteria of admission.

In order to be able to check, we do need some additional information from you and from your current university or faculty, which you can email to Didy Nauta ( before 1 August. We will need official proof from your current university or faculty that you are on track to finish your current programme and that you need 15 ECTS or less to do so. A screenshot from your grades list will NOT suffice.

If you have any questions, please contact the Education Office at educationoffice.fss

Please consider that the Master’s degree programmes are all-time intensive programmes. If you need to obtain an extra 5-15 ECTS of Bachelor’s course units, it will be difficult to finish the Master’s degree programme within 1 year.

We strongly advise you to consider if the option of already starting your Master’s degree programme is suitable for you or not. In some cases, it is better to focus on the completion of your Bachelor’s degree programme or pre-Master’s programme first, before starting a Master’s degree programme.

Please contact the study advisors (study.advice.fss of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences (Nienke Harteveld, Saskia Enuma and Reinier Schoep) to discuss your study plan.
