Convocation Ceremony 2018

28 September 2018

The Convocation Ceremony for the Academic year of 2018-2019 took place on Thursday the 6th of September. The ceremony was held in one of the most beautiful churches in Groningen: the Martinikerk (Martini church). We would like to thank all our students and guests for their positive contribution to this memorable event!

We would especially like to thank guest speaker Tasoula Hadjitofi. Her speech was an inspiration to us all, and very touching to say the least.

The music of the day was brought to us by organist Eeuwe Zijlsta, it was such a pleasure listening to his performance!

We wish all our students a great year!
