The University of Groningen expects a significant growth in the number of students in the coming academic year, reports the GIC. This growth could be more than 25 percent at some faculties. The RUG’s swelling student numbers are in line with universities elsewhere in the Netherlands, who also expect strong growth in the number of students.
This year there has already been a large rise in the number of students in Groningen, from 32,000 to 36,000, per the Ukrant.
The fact that this growth will continue, not only in Groningen but also at other universities, is probably partly due to Brexit – which means that students who would otherwise go to England are now opting for the Netherlands – and partly due to the Coronavirus, which means that fewer students are to take a gap year.
