Dear coming first-year ELC student!

Welcome to Groningen and welcome to Esperia, the study association of European Languages and Cultures. Starting a new study is very exciting and can even be a bit thrilling. Esperia is here to help you and make sure that you have an awesome start of your studies!

The Introduction Committee is the committee whose job it is to organise the introduction period for the first-year students of ELC. Each year they organise an introduction camp and several other activities at the beginning of the academic year. The introduction camp of the academic year of 2019-2020 took place from the 30th of August until the 1st of September 2019. We want to thank everyone who attended! Are you curious about Esperia and do you want to get an impression? Click here for the flyer of the introduction period from 2019.
