Personal recommendation
The university is good at academic success especially in research area.I think it would be nice if the university would become more international. This is clear because foreign students can not attend any of the events such as conferences, workshops,career fairs because of the language constraints.

well it's a small place but don't worry you can find nice places to go out. news cafe is an elegant place to sit and drink your beer. three sisters is biggest place, but generally age average is a bit lower than expected. "place" is the only place you have to pay for enterance but it's free at every thursdays, student night. monday is sally obreins' day, you can find all exhanges upstairs. but after couple of weeks you may get bored as its cheap beer sucks. tuesday is the rest day, however, if you want to go out you can listen live regi music while drinking your beer. on wednesday, Pand48 is the place for international students. During happy hour, beer is 1Eu. Pand48 is a small but such a nice place to spend your wed. night. Shadrak is an another place you can visit on wed. Latin is dominating sound. on thursday, like saturday, city center is full of dutchs. Exchanges prefer MollyMalones due to cheap drinks but enzo is the best place to go. Friday is also a resting day, but if you fell like going out city is crowded enough. Saturday is main dutch day. Everywhere is dutch, try to interact with them. On sonday, city is dead.

Personal recommendation
Groningen is an excellent choice for your ERASMUS year. It is a beautiful city that is small enough to get to know it really well but large enough to have plently of life and culture. The university itself has a good reputation and courses and wide ranging and enjoyable. One thing I would strongly advise is to seek accomadation in a student house rather than a private flat, as this was probably the best part of my year away and makes meeting people very easy and non-stressful.

Be careful not to get ripped off by local bike shops who make a killing out of exploiting foreign students. A second hand bike should cost no more than 50 euros. Student rail cards can be bought at the station if you take your student card and a photo, which gets you a big discount if you want to go to Amsterdam, The Hague or wherever takes your fancy for the weekend.

I think it's good for law, and it's one of the top six universities in the Netherlands.

Apply for your housing early. There are 5 international student houses and they are very popular.

Probably more frequent tutorials would be helpful. The university has very high-level academic approach which is based on individual work. However, more discussions and team work during classes would be interesting and helpful for students.
