Course recommendations
Readers must normally be bought for every course and often there is a supplementary book also, so buying reading materials can be expensive if you are staying for the year and studying perhaps 9 or 10 courses. A good idea is to club together with your friends and share readers, which are specifically tailored to the course to not as good value as a proper book which you can use again.

Courses in Groningen were extremely varied as regards workload and difficulty, so it is difficult to generalise, but overall I had no real problems.

Course recommendations
I was in the Netherlands to improve my Dutch so I was allowed to take any courses I liked. The Japanese history course was very good, as were the Japanese language lessons in the evening.

I didn't need any specific grades to 'pass' the courses and so I couldn't participate in the homework. A lot of work, including essays, was done on a group basis rather than individually. Some of the international students found it hard to get used to this.

By now what i can say is that, i have just started to improve in the way of reasoning about peoples life for instance how and why people are in conflicts and what should be done in a sense of helping them and aleviating the conflicts, also i have just started to know peoples rights as i have studied international humanrights law.

Don't expect an easy erasmus in the Netherlands. Courses in Groningen are hard, specially in Law, but it is to say that they are very interesting

You cannot smoke in he cantine since 1 January 2004....Exams at the end of the course when you are leaving are very annoying... you want to enjoy your last days and you have to study hard to pass them. I would prefer exams during the course or papers

Course recommendations
The university is big and really bureaucratic, so signing up for classes and registering for exams can be tiring. Try to get someone to set you up with a student mentor who can show you the city, the university and where to register, etc. Also, getting books doesn't seem to difficult for the locals, but it was for me.
