It is no coincidence that the SESyM programme takes place at Hanze UAS in Groningen. Hanze UAS is located on top of the largest natural gas field in Europe, the Groningen field. This explains why a number of key players in the traditional energy system are located in the Groningen area, commonly referred to as ‘Energy Valley’, and why so much energy research, engineering, and innovative activity takes place in the north of the Netherlands. In addition to these traditional energy activities, there are many tremendous projects going on in the region, which involve experiments related to energy transition. The launch of SESyM at Hanze UAS is another example of the region’s innovative energy spirit.

Visa, insurance and other practical matters
As a prospective international student you are on the doorstep of a great adventure: studying and living in the Netherlands. Although this is an amazing experience, it can be quite difficult finding your way through the rules and regulations, from applying for a study programme until your journey to the Netherlands. The International Service Desk (ISD) will assist you from start to finish. They can help you with practical matters, such as obtaining a visa and getting the right health insurance.
WARNING: non-EU applicants must follow the requirements of the International Service Desk for visa procedures. Hanze UAS has to prove to the IND that you can pay the tuition fee and that you have sufficient funds to live off before an immigration procedure is started. In order to prove this we ask our future students to transfer both the living costs as well as the tuition fee. Please find more information about the financial guarantee on this website.
