Stay With A Student
You will stay at the house of a (Dutch) student. The student has an admission ticket to ISCOMS 2023 as well and may be able to show you around the city of Groningen. The number of students that live in a student house varies per house. Once you are assigned to a student house you will have to contact your host. Thus, both you and the host can decide upon the amount of days you would like to stay at their house and if bedlinen is provided. Breakfast will always be provided. Please note, the ISCOMS Organising Committee will place you at a student’s house, you cannot choose the house you would like to stay at yourself. Be aware if you choose this option, that you are staying at a student house, so it won’t be as luxurious as a hotelroom.
“Housing international medicine students from around the world was a joy. We received students from India, Singapore and Indonesia. All with different backgrounds, religions and aspirations. We made sure they would feel at home by providing enough privacy, Dutch food but also to provide in their needs (e.g. halal food). We enjoyed providing hospitality and to have these great guests at our house.” – Tim Menkveld (student host)
“Staying with a student during ISCOMS programme is a great experience. It is not just about scientific matter and sharing personal experience but it is also a lot of fun. Staying with a student in this programme helped me to create a good friendship with students who also lived in that housing (both host and guest). This would also be very useful for the future of our life and indeed for the future of science.” – Caraka Satrija (participant)
