About us University College Groningen About us


We encourage our students to take ownership of their education. They can build their programme in line with their own interests and ambitions in order to become independent and self-determined young professionals. To support our students, UCG provides a dedicated guidance team consisting of Academic Advisors and a Personal Support Advisor. Students are also paired with a Student Mentor, who will help with a students transition to UCG. This personalised guidance system helps students to reflect on their study plans and course choices, offers advice in personal and academic matters, and encourages inspiration and curiosity.

Concretely this means that your Advisor helps you plan your curriculum so that you develop and pursue your intellectual interests while meeting degree requirements. Your Advisor helps you keep track of your progress and signals (potential) problems. Advisors are involved in the process whereby students select courses, compose majors and minors, and plan their future studies and careers.
