Clio is here to make your student life unforgettable!
Clio is the Study Association of International Relations and International Organization at the University of Groningen.
Clio organises social, study and career-related activities for all its members. This includes parties, lectures and travels, which is a great addition to your studies.

Also Clio provides for study-supportive activities that help you prepare for your exams next year.

Nienke de Deugd, Senior Lecturer IRIO
"As a member of the IRIO staff, I continue to appreciate Clio like I did when I was a student and Clio-member myself. Clio helps our Dutch and foreign students get to know each other - something that greatly contributes to the development of a truly integrated and international student body.
What is more, it offers a wide variety of activities: some of which are designed to be fun, such as the Introduction Camp and the various parties that are organized throughout the year, while others take a more serious approach, for example workshops on study skills or lectures about career prospects. In sum, as I have experienced first-hand, Clio is definitely an asset to the IRIO programme!"
