About University of Groningen
The University of Groningen was established in 1614. The University of Groningen  is the second oldest university in the Netherlands. The University of Groningen enjoys an international reputation as one of the leading research universities in Europe. It has a large international network and an excellent reputation for academic teaching with a modern, student-oriented approach. We offer degree programmes at Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD levels in virtually every field, many of them completely taught in English. Located in the north of the Netherlands, Groningen is an ideal, safe student city with a flourishing student life and many social and cultural activities. International students have rated the University of Groningen as the most welcoming university in the Netherlands. 

This year, too, the University of Groningen will start off the new academic year in festive style. The first – private – part of the programme will be held in the Aula on Monday 31 August, starting at 4 p.m. with an opening speech by Rector Magnificus Prof. Frans Zwarts, followed by a lecture by Ms Lilian Hoogenboom, Bachelor’s student of International Relations and International Organization. This part of the programme will be concluded by the presentation of the Groningen University Fund Education Prizes awarded to the nine best University of Groningen students (one for each faculty), a performance by the student a-capella choir Bragi and a presentation by the new University Poet Sacha Landkroon.

The open part of the programme will be held on the square in front of the Academy Building, starting with the traditional toast on the balcony at about a quarter past five. The Rector Magnificus and the students will together drink to a successful new academic year. Then the party will really get started with a fantastic show by DJ Gregor Salto and the super swinging cover band Groove Department. Jump to the beat of the Groningen hip-hop band Vice Verzen and the Jeroen Sweers Boogie Woogie Band with a drink in one hand and a snack in the other. Finally, Pushin Wood Soundsystem will conclude the celebrations with their mix of balkan, jazz, hip-hop and funky ‘positive music’.
