Matching & Admission Support

School of Science and Engineering

The Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) of the University of Groningen (UG) offers a wide range of Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes for students.


For all students who want to start one of the FSE’s bachelor’s degree programmes on 1 September 2024, it is mandatory to do matching. The matching process helps students to check whether the bachelor’s degree of their choice suits them best in terms of level and content. Part of this process is an intake form, an Intercultural Faculty component and to matching tests: a mathematical test and a programme specific test. Our matching advice will be based on the tests and the intake form. Though participation in the process and finishing it before the deadline is mandatory, our matching advice is not binding.

If you have any questions about matching at the FSE, please visit our website or send an email to matching.fse .

Numerus fixus

Students who apply for a numerus fixus (fixed quota) programme will have to successfully complete a selection procedure before they can be admitted to the programme. Candidates will be selected based on their suitability and motivation for the programme. The highest ranked candidates will be admitted to the programme. The ranking will be based on the candidates' grade list and the selection test result. When candidates' scores are equal, their motivation letter and CV will be decisive. The following bachelor degree programmes are numerus fixus (fixed quota) programmes:

  • Artificial Intelligence (175 places)
  • Biomedical Engineering (125 places)
  • Computing Science (200 places)

If you have any questions about numerus fixus at the FSE, please send an email to numerusfixus.fse
