    Excellent Professors but Content of Course is too Abstract

    While this MA course is engaging and challenging, it does little to provide students with the skills needed for a career that deals with conflict or human rights. It is heavily focused on abstract concepts such as the ontological and epistemological stances of theories. If you intend to do a PhD, this course will prepare you perfectly but if you want a job working in the field, you should probably look elsewhere.

    The professors are excellent and are extremely knowledgeable and engaging. They are also approachable and very understanding of personal circumstances which is quite important during Corona times. Classes are small (20-40 people) and debate and discussion are encouraged. There’s a heavy emphasis on group work as many of the graded assignments are completed in groups. Furthermore, the students in this programme are tight-knit and there’s a great deal of camaraderie. Overall, this MA programme is perfect if you plan on doing qualitative research or a PhD afterwards but it does not provide you with the practical skills needed for a career within the fields of peacebuilding or conflict resolution.

    very well organized

    I really enjoy my experience as a student. Everything is very well organized – you know every step you need to take on your academic path from the beginning, there are so many people to guide you through your experience from teachers to students. Everything is always very clear and the information is easy to receive. I highly recommend this university not just for its wonderful academic prospects, but also for the highly international environment promoted.

    Loads of minors and inter-department courses

    Overall I am really happy with my choice. In the beginning, I wasn’t sure if Economics is truly my field, but the bachelor’s has so many optional courses and different study paths within the major that I found the perfect combination for myself. So if you’re a student who wants to have some space to discover your interests and study different subjects, this is definitely the right choice.

    Incompetant and greedy

    I had one of my worst experiences here in my whole life. I studied sustainable development- international development, in the Geosciences school and WOW, let me tell you, the disorganisation is unsurmountable. Between lack of preparation of workload, teachers, and supervisors not responding, a complete lack of awareness of mental health, and honestly, just a lack of a positive environment. I like to work in positive environments, where people are not stressed all the time and the workload is realistic to everyone. This was not that. Supervisors and lecturers tend to want to test you and trip you up rather than educate you and guide you further. As a Master’s student, I thought we were through with that kind of petty teaching and was looking forward to a more mature form of studying, yet we were talked down to, patronized, and ignored for the majority of my 2 years here. I would not recommend any person to put themselves through this nightmare of a course until it is restructured and organised. It is a waste of money, and even when your studies are delayed through the fault of the university – or in the case of COVID-19, they will still have no problems taking your money. I found that there was a degree on incompetence at every level, there is a systematic failure in how they run things. This includes the interactions with the board, who also do not reply or give reasonable advice, with the study advisor, who does not know the meaning of confidentiality or mental health, and the system itself where there is a lot of unnecessary, time-wasting procedures in place which are only a bigger distraction from the work itself, and often lead to a more financial burden. Do not apply here if you are a person who lives outside the box that the system expects you to be in because I’m warning you, this university is not prepared to deal with anything except what is written in the course guide, AKA the Course Bible.

    Beautiful city and excellent courses!

    I studied abroad at Utrecht University in the fall of 2019 and it was probably the best few months of my life. The city of Utrecht is absolutely beautiful, with its charming canals, architecture, and plentiful bicycles. It is not as big as Amsterdam, so it’s easy to find your way around as soon as you arrive, as well as to navigate by bike or even on foot, but it’s big enough to still feel very urban. It’s got a charming, cosy feel (“gezellig,” as the Dutch would call it), but still has so much to do. The classes I took at Utrecht University were led by highly-qualified and professional teachers who encouraged collaboration amongst students. I learned a lot from the local Dutch students and the other international students in my classes as we worked together. The classes moved quickly, but never at an overwhelming rate. I would highly recommend studying at Utrecht University.

    Multifaceted Approach to Learning

    UCU takes a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach to learning, allowing you to experiment with an array of elective courses. There are great opportunities to go abroad on exchange or for summer programmes. With small-scaled classrooms, there is always room for open discussion and debate, moreover, students can get directed advice from professors they known on an individual basis. It has a pretty rigorous workload, but altogether very manageable!

    Facilities, sustainability programs

    Great university. The university college has all the advantages of being a small university in the sense that there are lots of opportunities to have a close relationship with professors and tutors, as well as in having a say in the decisions the university makes. These benefits are there whilst still being able to enjoy the benefits of a large university as it is part of UU and due to that, UCU student can still enjoy all the resources of that university.

    Program flexibility and resources

    Great university, great location, good programs and great tuition for eu students. The student life is great in Utrecht as there are many young people and therefore lots of events and activities happening geared towards this public. The professors at the university college are usually quite good and attentive to students needs. The tutor system is quire helpful in terms of setting up your curriculum.

    University College Utrecht was a home

    I studied at University College Utrecht and I have thoroughly enjoyed my three years there. Obviously not all was perfect, as often course time slots clashed, which sometimes made it difficult to create you timetable, but overall I loved this uni, the people I met there, the opportunities it provided and the teachers.

    University College Utrecht

    I study on the international Campus of the University where all students follow the LA&S program. The accommodation provided by the university is big, well equipped, and the repairing staff is responsive. The academic infrastructures are amazing; every classroom is equipped with projectors, speakers, easily accessible computer interface (but black boards and chalk…). The classes are small (max 28 students), enabling conversations. However, many teachers do not efficiently enough promote it through the structure of their seminars. UCU is a bubble with an incredible amount of committees ran by students. The student representatives also have a lot of influence on academic decisions. Even though many stay in the bubble, the city center or the larger campus of the university are about a 7 to 10 minutes bike ride from UCU. Utrecht is extremely lively; it’s easy to pop the bubble if one wants it.
    Students make up their own curriculum. The school also offers many interesting exchange destinations all over the world and the presence of exchange students at UCU is also greatly valued.
