Going to an university is a big step. The programme you choose will define you, so you want to be sure that you are making an informed decision. We are here to help you make the right decision! We organise several events in which you can participate, these will all start again in the new academic year September 2020.

Digital UCG
The Digital UCG week helps you in gathering as much knowledge as you need from your own homes. These are strange times, in which visiting us before the new Academic Year starts is not as easy as it used to be. You may have questions such as:

  • How can I know what to expect during the first year?
  • How can I experience what the classes are like?
  • How can I get a clear picture on project-based education?
  • How will I learn more about student life at UCG?

The answer is via the Digital UCG week. During the week we offer a variety of seminars covering different topics such as student life, career perspectives or internship possibilities.

Student for a Day
Get a feel for the programme by becoming a Student for a Day. You'll spend part of a day with a UCG student who will meet you at the UCG campus in the center of Groningen. During your visit you will attend a class or project workshop of your choice and tour the campus building. It will provide you with a true experience of what student life is like at UCG and creates a good opportunity to chat with current UCG students.

Virtual Student for a Day
During the Virtual Student for a Day you can choose to indivudally sign up for several (virtual) activities. During these activities  you will learn more about the Liberal Arts and Sciences programme at UCG. These activities include following a lecture online and having a skype conversation with an UCG student or one of our staff members.

Open Days (currently online due to Corona measurements)
The Open Days are for you to find out what we have to offer. The University of Groningen organises the first 2 Open Days online. During these first Open Days - you will receive an introduction into the Liberal Arts and Sciences programme.

We hope that during the last open day you will be able to  get a true taste of what it means to study Liberal Arts and Sciences at University College Groningen! We hope that during this last Open Day you will also get a chance to discover the wonderful city of Groningen and our student accommodation Frascati. The city sells itself, as it is an exciting and vibrant place to be and we're certain when you visit, you'll see yourself being part of this amazing city.

Experience Days (currently not offered due to Corona measurements)
During the Experience Day you will get a more in depth understanding of what it is like to be an UCG student. It is an actual simulation of an average day studying at UCG. This begins by being in a small class with a maximum of 25 (prospective) students. Throughout the day you will take part in several fun and informative activities such as attending an interactive lecture, you will have lunch with current UCG students and staff members and you will learn more about important matters such as the role of project-based learning or practicalities related to the application procedure.

The Experience Day truly offers one of the best opportunities to sit down with our students and staff members and ask them anything you'd like.
