The University organizes an official Welcoming Ceremony for all new international guests at the beginning of both the first and second semester. All new international students should receive an invitation from the University about 4 weeks before the event.
During the interactive Welcoming Ceremony all new international students will be welcomed by distinguished speakers such as the President of the university and Nobel prize winner Ben Feringa. Students can attend a variety of fun and interesting workshops, and learn all about what the university and city of Groningen have to offer (in terms of, for example, sports and cultural facilities, international student associations and university facilities) at the information fair. We will end the day in celebration of your arrival with live music, dancing, drinks and snacks. The Welcoming Ceremony is the perfect opportunity to meet fellow international students and staff of the university and its faculties!
