Faculty of Arts

Students who want to study at the University of Groningen, but whose home university does not have a mobility agreement with the Faculty of Arts, have the possibility to apply as freemover (only EU students).

As a freemover you can take undergraduate courses from the course overview for exchange students offered by the various departments of our Faculty and receive grades/credits for them. The maximum stay is one academic year and you can enroll at the start of the semester. This programme does not lead to a Bachelor degree. After successful completion of a course, you will receive an official certificate, stating the title of the course, the grade en credits of the course.

Please note that we can only accept a few freemovers each year.  


The fees for participation in 2017-2018 are as follows (subject to changes):

Administration fee: € 50

Fee per course € 10


In order to participate, freemovers need to send a completed application form, together with all the required documents to the International Office. After the International Office has received this application, the student will be notified by e-mail within 4 weeks whether he/she can be admitted. Admissions as a freemover does not guarantee admission to all courses; the course selection will be assessed by the academic advisor for exchange students. The student will receive an invoice for the administration and course fees. These need to be paid by bank transfer.
