SCHEDULE

The weekend starts Friday, 20st of May at 16h (the bus arrives at 15.48) and ends on Sunday, 22nd at 18h (the bus leaves at 18.08). We will stay at the barn part of Wongema, which comes with a kitchen, an open fire, armchairs, a massive table, and 11 “bedstedes” (sleeping lofts). The barn will be a quiet working area during the daytime, while the next-door café is open for those who prefer more commotion. The math is easy; only 11 academics can join.

The daily scheme is plain and straightforward; at set times, we eat together, preceded, or followed, by a gathered moment to discuss the progress so far. In between, you can: work, walk, have a power nap, have a session with the Academic Career Coach, etc. It is up to you to follow your plan; the intake, the kick-off, your peers, and the Academic Career Coach will help you set and (re)define your goals.  

NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE

– The one-hour trip by train and bus from Groningen to Hornhuizen, and vice versa (€ 7,25)

– Alcoholic drinks

– A private room. However, there is a limited possibility of booking one for € 80 extra.
