Considering a study exchange to Groningen?

A short stay abroad as a part of your bachelor's or master's degree programme can definitely be a lifelong advantage - an experience to remember all your life! Choosing the right country, city and university for your study stay abroad can however be challenging: your guest-university should furnish you with the skills and knowledge for your specific academic field.

So why choose Groningen?

Groningen is a small city, but full of life. What will probably strike you most when entering Groningen is its youthful population. Roughly a quarter of the city’s 197.000 inhabitants consists of students. You will find them everywhere, studying in the park, riding a bike, or having a drink with fellow students in one of the many pubs!
