What to expect

Open Days are your chance to discover more about undergraduate and postgraduate studies first-hand. It’s your chance to ask all your burning questions and find out everything you’d like to know about the University of Groningen. You’ll also meet students and staff, and can visit faculties, check out our facilities and get a general feeling for life at the UG. #OpenDayUG

Subject presentations
Attend a subject presentation to get a better idea about what you will be taught, what will be expected of you, but also the opportunities that await you at the UG. The presentations are held in the faculty buildings – there are four time slots during the day on a Friday and three on a Saturday - leaving you plenty of time to have a chat, grab some lunch and find your way to the next one. Some talks (in German and English) are more focused on international students, with extra information about admissions and housing.

Information fairs
Make sure to stop by one or more of the information stands in-between presentations. Here, you can chat face-to-face with someone from your faculty or find out all about the university’s social activities.

City tours
Get an insider view of the city by taking part in one of the free city tours guided by one of our Student Ambassadors.

If you are unable to attend an Open Day, or you want more information after attending an Open Day, there are a few other ways to find out more about our programmes and student life:

  • Student for a day – get first-hand experience of being a student at a faculty
  • Web classes – take a taster course at home
  • Meet us in your country – visit one of our international events
  • Webinars – check out one of our free online sessions
  • Guided tours – arrange a personal tour around the UG with a current student (for international students only)

How to get to Groningen?

As the largest and oldest city in the Northern Netherlands, Groningen has excellent airport-, rail- and road connections to all the main cities in the Netherlands and Germany.
