The University of Groningen is an international place of knowledge that attracts students and staff from all over the world. Located in the heart of Europe, we are rooted in the tradition and history of a city which is widely regarded as the City of Talent. Our University offers a great variety of English-taught degree programmes and is continually scouting talented students, providing them the opportunity to excel.

Students from other universities are welcome to contact us about the possibilities to study in Groningen.

Lectures at the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies take place in small groups, so students can benefit optimally from the lecturers’ broad expertise. The courses are characterised by a continuing interaction between the lecturers and the students, leaving ample room for student participation, discussion and: continuous coaching which motivates students and staff to work and strive for excellency.

Students interested in studying for one or two semesters in Groningen can choose from a variety of courses (e.g. cultural history of Christianity or Hinduism), specialisations (from Islam to philosophy) and methodologies (from philology to anthropology). For a complete overview of the courses search the course catalogue Ocasys . A special programme of English courses open to exchange students is "Religion in the Modern World".
