About us Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences

We are and we remain internationally minded

07 March 2024

The University of Groningen has been an ´international´ university ever since its foundation in 1614. True, nations did not exist at the time, but the lingua franca of European scholarship was Latin, and it was common for European scholars to stay and study in different European regions during their career, including Groningen. Already in its founding year, more than one-third of students at the University of Groningen came from abroad!

Throughout the centuries, internationalization and international collaboration have contributed significantly to what the University of Groningen is today: a leading university with a thriving, diverse international community. As a knowledge institute, the University of Groningen collaborates with academic and non-academic partners in our region, the Netherlands, Europe and the world.

Today, the playing field for academic mobility became the entire globe. We welcome students and colleagues from all over the world and we encourage our students and staff to stay, study and research in different regions of the world, to broaden their horizon and bring back new perspectives and insights that help us to develop our knowledge, skills and positive impact.
