Constructing your own program
Philosophy or physics? Medicine or mathematics? Law or a language? One of the distinguishing features of the program at UCR is that you do not have to choose. The Liberal Arts and Sciences concept is based upon the idea that today’s most complex problems can no longer be solved with a mono-disciplinary approach. Students at University College Roosevelt construct their own academic program, tailor-made to their individual interests. In doing so, the program prepares you for a world whose demands and challenges will grow more complex each year, while optimally preparing you for the master’s program or the job of your choice.
Not for every student
The University College Roosevelt concept may not fit every student: the continuous assessment system, its study pace, and its high standards demand a lot from students, who are encouraged to perform to the best of their ability and, in turn, motivate each other to the fullest. Our success rates clearly show that this strategy works. Nearly 90% of our graduates complete their bachelor´s program within the allotted three years, and many of them have been accepted to the best graduate programs available. This does not mean, however, that UCR students are simply brilliant scholars. Students ultimately decide to study at UCR because of their boundless curiosity, their motivation, and their international outlook.
A unique City Campus
University College Roosevelt´s personal approach is reflected in the city it has chosen as its location and in the way the campus is envisioned. While Middelburg may not be as big as Utrecht, it definitely shares the same high ambitions and goals. As in other university cities, there are pubs and clubs, theaters, cinemas, and sporting facilities -- all within easy reach. Moreover, beaches are not too far away from the UCR campus; many students do their homework on the beach during the spring semester! UCR boasts the only City Campus in the Netherlands, with students living together on campus locations in the city-center of Middelburg. This allows you the freedom to cook your own meals and live an independent life while enjoying all the benefits of a close-knit campus community. Classes are taught in the majestic former City Hall of Middelburg, built in the 14th-century Gothic style.
At University College Roosevelt you will:
- create your own combination of courses from all academic disciplines
- attend intensive, small-scale classes
- live on an international city campus
- go on to the best master’s programs in the world
