Welcoming Ceremony RUG for international students

Are you one of our new international guests? Come to the Welcoming Ceremony of the RUG!




The University organizes an official Welcoming Ceremony for all new international guests at the beginning of both the first and second semester. The programme includes short speeches by the Rector Magnificus and other representatives of the University, as well as an information market, lunch and workshops about studying in Groningen. Special welcoming packages will be distributed.

All new international students should receive an invitation through their faculty contact person. If for some reason you do not receive such an invitation, please contact the International Service Desk. Attending the ceremony is free of charge.
