Welcome to your Programme

Dear prospective student,

We would like to welcome you to the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) of the University of Groningen (UG) and inform you about some important issues regarding the start of your MSc degree programme in 2023/2024.

  • To help you make a great start here at the Faculty of Science and Engineering at the University of Groningen and specifically in your programme, we have organized a number of activities around the start of your programme, collectively called the ‘Kick-off activities’ . We strongly encourage you to attend these.
  • Please ensure that you complete your university registration on time, including the payment of your tuition fee. You can always check the status of your registration in Studielink, or contact Student Information and Administration in case you have questions about this issue.
  • The Student Portal serves as the primary source of information for students. When you log in, you will automatically arrive on the ‘Today’ tab. Please also visit the ‘Study Info’ tab for MSc Biomedical Engineering: it provides detailed information about your degree programme and the tracks/ specializations therein, course units in the programme, etc. Please use your computer account to log on to the Student Portal, and read the relevant information from your degree programme, before the start in September. The contents are expected to be known by every student in the programme. Extensive information about the programme will also be provided during the introduction days.
  • Your master’s degree programme will officially start on 4 September, 2023. You can find all locations of our Faculty online. Time tables will be published online as well, usually from 15 July onwards. The programme-specific introduction and other informative sessions throughout the year can be found under the course ‘pibme’ (programme information BME). New students can still enroll for courses in the first lecture week.
  • The academic advisor, Elke Noens, assists students in finding solutions to any problem encountered while studying and provide information about the degree programme.

We wish you a pleasant summer, and hope to welcome you in September!

Best regards,

Jelmer Sjollema (MSc BME degree programme director)

Irma Knevel (MSc BME degree programme coordinator)

Elke Noens (MSc BME degree academic advisor)
