Teacher should be more in relation with students. They put all the tasks on the Intranet but there is little contact between teachers and students.

Personal recommendation
This University should inform more international students about the way they work with the e-learning, because most of them are not used to it at all.

I recommend to live in an international house, not too far from the city center. It is also very important to buy a bikre if you study in Groningen because it is very convenient.

Personal comments
'De Zolder' ('The Attic') is memorable for its unique atmosphere and interesting beer. For a more mainstream night out, there are quite a few nightclubs on the main street. I rate 'Het Feest' as a fun place to go.
