English Language Courses


Tailor-made Courses

The University of Groningen Language Centre offers English courses for individuals, small groups, companies, government institutions and many others. Tailor-made courses are designed to meet the participants' needs, both in content and in organizational aspects. The starting date, days, times and intensity will be tailored to your needs. We can also provide in-company courses. Please read more about tailor-made courses or contact the Language Centre to set up a meeting.

Standard Courses

The Language Centre offers standard English group courses in several language skills: general skills, oral skills, writing skills and specific language skills. Please use the menu or the overview below to select the English language course of your choice.

Your Level: Mandatory Office Hour

As it is important you enroll in the course at the right level, we urge you to attend the English office hours, during which your language levels will be briefly assessed. Please bring your advice card with you when enrolling at our Office, or send a scan of the advice card to languagecentre rug.nl.

When should I go to the office hours?

  • If you have not taken a Language Centre English course before

Who should not go to the office hours?

  • If you have already taken a Language Centre English course, you can register using the advice card the teacher gave you at the end of the course.

Student workload

‘Studyload’, in the course description, indicates the number of hours a student is expected to spend on the course. A studyload of 28 hours equals 1 ECTS credit point.

Attendance certificate

At the end of a course, every participant will receive an attendance certificate on condition that they have attended 75% of the lessons.
