Introduction Program

Introduction program from the RUG for all students

At the start of the programme, several introduction activities are organized. We strongly encourage you to participate, in order to make a solid start in Groningen and be optimally informed about your degree programme.

  • All new international students are invited to attend the Welcoming Ceremony of our university on the 2nd of September. During this festive event, you will receive important information to ensure a pleasant stay in Groningen and have the chance to sign in for the ESN Introduction week .
  • KEI-week: the KEI-week is the introduction week for students of the Hanzehogeschool Groningen, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, Academie Verloskunde Groningen en Stenden Hogeschool. In one week you will get to know the city, student organizations and your new life!

Introduction Panacea

Every year the Panacea Introduction Committee (PanIC) organizes the introduction for all first-year medical students. This year the Introduction day will take place on the 3rd of September. The introduction camp will take place from the 4th of September until the 6th of September. Details and instructions are provided on their website.

You can read the introduction booklet of Panacea here.

Introduction Faculty of Medical Sciences

The Faculty of Medicine organizes a faculty introduction for all first-year Bachelor Medicine students on the 7th of September. Due to the coronation measures, we will probably have to divide the Learning Community students into smaller groups for the introductions on the 7th of September. By the end of August we expect to finalize the program for the 7th of September and will inform you further via the Nestor Course of Causes of Diseases semester 1.1.
