First-Year Students

Dear first-year students,

SV NUTS, the study association of the English department, welcomes you all to your Bachelor’s English Language and Culture, to the University, and to the beautiful city of Groningen!

Study Association NUTS has been around for 50 years and we aim to provide an inclusive and welcoming environment that is, above all, extremely fun! We organise all sorts of events throughout the academic year. Our smaller, recurring events include drinks, pub quizzes, pub crawls, board game night, high teas, karaoke, and so much more. Our major events are the Night of English Literature which is a fun night in the beautiful Van der Velde bookstore after hours, and the Poetry and Music night, which is an open podium where people can show off their poetic and musical talents. And best of all, each year our Travel Committee organises a fun and exciting trip abroad towards the end of the academic year.  

Not only is our association a place for socialising and getting to know your fellow students, or to contact with any questions you might have, but as a member you also get many special perks like a discount on your books when you order them from the StudyStore and free entrance or a discount on all NUTS events. 

In short: Joining NUTS is an absolutely great idea and will make your time in the English department not only easier and cheaper, but also A LOT MORE FUN!!
