Course recommendations
Be sure that all professors will do their best to make you feel right about choosing Groningen for your studies: perfectly well organised, innovative teaching methods, capacities in interacting with foreign students, fluent english. Personal reccomendation: International law, African law(!), Sociology of Law.- Do take the best advantage of the Univ. library just opposite the University, where a wide range of sources of knowledge, from books to multimedia, will assist you in gaining he information you need.

Final comments
Disccounting caard to travel by train (you can get it in the station). Buy a Dutch Mobile caard (more useful). Cold very very cold in the winter (gloves, coats, scarfs, hats). Bikes (always second hand not more than 10 euros in the street) and buy a good lock, otherwise they will steal your bike...

To understand written Dutch wasn't too hard as I know Swedish, English and German. However, understanding the spoken language was somewhat harder but the Dutchs are very good at English so I didn't have any problems at all.

Almost every day there are Happy Hours in the different pubs and clubs. Groningen is not that big, so you will find everything very easily. There´s something for every taste. Also check all the flyers for parties!!
