Language Education Bachelor of Medicine

The bachelor of Medicine at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen is in English. However, during these three years, you are obliged to learn the Dutch language. After these three years, you will go into the clinic and see many Dutch-speaking patients. Therefore, the faculty demands their students to obtain a certain level of Dutch to be able to enrol in the Master programme. On this page, you will gain more information on what this means for you and how many students managed to do this before you.
