    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.

    High quality education, but could do more for alpha studies and student housing

    I’m studying at Utrecht University for three years already; I started studying Pedagogical sciences, but switched to anthropology. I think it’s a high-quality university because they have a really diverse and broad offer of both bachelor’s and master’s programmes, which include courses that are given by the best experts of the field. All courses are organized really well: all necessary information is easily accessible and always available on time. Not only do I think education of this university is excellent, I also think their facilities are really good and their support for student organizations is fantastic. For instance, I got a lot of funding for doing a board year at AEGEE-Utrecht, so it is possible that I can spend a full year in a full-time board and can finish my studies right afterwards. They also have many possibilities for students to have a right of say in the decisions the university is making, such as the student participation council, students council (with yearly elections), students council per bachelor’s programme, faculty council, etc. Etc. However, I do notice that the university puts more effort in all beta studies than in all alpha studies, while all students pay the same fee every month. You can spot this difference amongst other things: buildings, facilities, support for study-related associations, equipment. They could improve this! Next to that, I think they could do a lot more for student housing. They accept more and more students every year, but they don’t do much for student housing, which is a big problem, because there already is a huge shortage of student’s housing.

  • Politics
    The infrastructure

    (Valid for the University College Utrecht, faculty of University Utrecht):__Nice small classes with increasing student participation as classes get deeper and more specific. Closed campus (about 900 students), with great 1 semester exchange opportunities, and other courses off campus (and internationally). __The school is a bubble in which the majority of students live. It is an individual choice to suffer, embrace, or pop that bubble!__Lovely city, very welcoming for students with a great party scene, close to Amsterdam, plenty of job opportunities,…

    Quality teaching

    It is very good! The quality of the courses is really high and there is a lively student life. But it is very hard to get a room for exchange students. The level of english of the teachers is sufficient.

    MSc in Social and Behavioral Sciences

    Speaking about study qualities, I would definitely say that UU provides a great range of knowledge and (internship) opportunities. Teachers and students are generally well aligned and thus it could be seen that there is great communication between them. Furthermore, the study materials look way up to date-both in topics and study tools. What is really important though is that in my eyes the particular faculty is trying to highlight the personal input and creativity of the students. Consequently, I will highly recommend studying social/behavioral sciences in UU for those students that are looking for creativity, innovation, and active participation.

  • Large scale university, but with room to find your own niche

    The quality of research and teaching is generally high and the facilities are top notch. In my studies of mathematics and history, I was generally content with the way classes were taught. Because it’s a large university, the content is very diverse. As a bachelor student, you will have hundreds of option.
    Because most studies have lots of students it’s easy to feel lost at first. Luckily, there are many student organisations giving you the chance to develop yourself and have fun.
