Welcome to your Programme

Welcome to the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) of the University of Groningen (UG)!

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.    

The Kick-off Activities will introduce you to the faculty, the degree programme, the study association, and most of all, to your fellow students

Finding somewhere to live can be daunting, especially if you are moving to the Netherlands for the first time.  Around 20,000 students will all be looking for a room at the same time in Groningen so start your search as soon as possible.  It is your own responsibility to find somewhere to live. The University of Groningen does NOT provide accommodation for students. We advise that you start looking for accommodation as early as possible since it will be very difficult to secure somewhere to stay if you wait too long. Tips on looking for accomodation can be found on the University website.

Start of the programme
Your bachelor 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.

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

Best regards,

Prof. W.R.Browne, programme director MSc Chemistry
Geartsje Zondervan, academic advisor MSc Chemistry
Corry Bijlsma, programme coordinator
