Opening Academic Year

31st August 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The official Opening of the Academic Year 2020-2021 will take place on Monday 31 August. Normally this is a formal ceremony led by Rector Cisca Wijmenga in the Martini Church with hundreds of guests. This is not possible because of the corona measures, but we have found a nice alternative in the form of a short ceremony via a live stream on the UG YouTube channel (from 2 pm), with special guests including Sigrid Kaag, the Dutch Minister for International Trade, and pulmonologist Sander de Hosson, our Alumnus of the Year 2019. The official announcement of this will follow at the beginning of August via www.rug.nl/opening.
