Entry requirements

At University College Utrecht, we look for intellectually adventurous students who demonstrate achievements and engagement in and outside of the classroom. Each year we receive approximately 1,000 applications and select around 250 students for enrolment. To be accepted, candidates must fit a general profile and meet a set of minimum requirements regarding their diploma and English proficiency.

  • You have an intrinsic interest in studying in an academic setting and are curious to learn about many things.
