Three out of every ten students still live in Groningen ten to fifteen years later

22 January 2014

Three out of every ten students who graduate at one of the higher education institutions in Groningen still live in the city ten to fifteen years later. One of these three already lived in Groningen before they started their degree. The chances that they will move elsewhere after this period of time are very small, and most of those who do move stay in the region. This has been revealed by research conducted by Sierdjan Koster and Viktor Venhorst of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences of the University of Groningen, together with professor of Regional Labour Market Analysis Jouke van Dijk.
