Some practical information about studying in Groningen
Seeing as we’ve just passed through our first lot of exams in Groningen, this seems like a good opportunity to make an informative post telling you a lottle more about what it’s like to study in this city.
I can remember that the first thing that I was slightly dubious about when coming here was that there were to be no tutorials for any of the courses. One two hour lecture a week (well, one and a half hours, really, seeing as classes don’t actually commence until quarter past the given hour, and you get a much valued fifteen minute coffee break in the middle) and that’s it for most courses. Given that in Edinburgh, I generally felt that I gained most understanding of the subjects in the tutorials, I was a wee tad worried.
