The Introduction Week of ESN Groningen is the biggest introduction week for international students in Groningen! It is the best way to start your time in this city. Discover Groningen with all the new internationals, get to know each other and have an incredible beginning of your stay.

During the introduction week we will put you in groups of ca. 15 internationals and 2 introduction guides. These guides are Dutch or international students that have lived in Groningen for a longer period of time. These guides will help and guide you during the entire introduction week.

The ESN Introduction Week will start on Friday the 31st of August and will finish with an amazing final Dutch party on Wednesday 5th of September. Since lectures will start on Monday the 3rd, ESN will only offer an evening program on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so you can still attend your lectures. Check out the Facebook event here.

During the week you and your group will participate in our pub crawl, culture day, sports day, band night, comedy show, Dutch language lessons, a movie night and of course a couple of great parties! It's the perfect way to meet new people, explore your new hometown, learn about the Dutch language and culture, and take care of practical issues such as getting a bicycle. 

Tickets for the whole week cost €35, which includes an ESN Card, multiple dinners and access to all of the activities.
