About us Faculty of Arts Study at our Faculty Exchange

How to apply?

There are 4 steps to apply for an exchange and to complete your registration process:

1.   Nomination by your home university. If your university is an exchange partner of the University of Groningen you can apply for a study abroad period at the International Office of your own university. After you have been selected for an exchange to Groningen by your home university, the international coordinator/exchange officer of your university will inform us of your nomination.

2.   Based on your nomination you are provisionally accepted as an exchange student at the Faculty of Arts. We will send you updated information about your application and practical matters to think about when preparing your studies in Groningen (by e-mail). You can now apply online.

3.  After you have completed your online application (including all required documents, application form below), we will send you your 'letter of acceptance' by e-mail. We will register you as an exchange student at the Faculty of Arts.

4.   The study adviser for exchange students will contact you about (the approval of) your course selection.
