“I think I'm getting a far better education than I would at home”

Study Programme: Physics (Bachelor)
Country: England

“I would definitely recommend future students from the UK to study abroad! Moving to Groningen was a big step; however, the university and people were very welcoming. When I arrived there was a – very humourful! – welcoming ceremony for international students, which helped to introduce me to the university, the city and life in the Netherlands.

The application process is different to that of England, so that was a bit difficult. Finding an accommodation, on the other hand, was no problem at all. The university recommended me to look early and make use of the Housing Office, which turned out to be really helpful. The university itself is fantastic! My Physics course is difficult but engaging and the lecturers generally speak very good English. I think I'm getting a far better education than I would at home, as the teaching standard here is excellent. The mix of cultures and educational backgrounds is interesting and rarely acts as a barrier. It offers me the chance to see a new culture and all its quirks, something the Dutch culture does not lack!”
