Experience the Bachelor

There are several ways to get a first impression of the History programme in Utrecht. You can visit an Open Day or sign up for the student for a day event. You can also read about the experiences of students who are following the programme themselves.

Visit the Bachelor's Open Days

Rebecca shares her experience of studying in the heart of Utrecht city

During the Open Day, make sure to visit the information market where you can ask all your questions to teachers and students. Sign up for campus tours through our buildings in the historic city center, or attend a mini lecture. You'll also find information about finances, study choice assistance, honors, studying with disabilities, sports, and much more.


The next Bachelor’s Open Days to get to know this programme are on:

  • Wednesday 1 November (online)

Experience days

Curious to know what it's like to study History in Utrecht? Then come and join us for a day before you apply. After your application, you'll also take part in a matching process.

Student for a day

During a student for a day event, you'll attend one or more classes and have the opportunity to chat with students and teachers. If you're interested, you can also visit the Study Association UHSK. You're welcome to join if you're in your final years of high school, transferring from another programme, or as an HBO student, and if you've already attended an Open Day.


After you apply for the programme, you'll participate in a matching process. This is similar to the student for a day event but is mandatory and serves as the final check to see if the programme suits you. You'll study course material at home, complete assignments, attend a lecture in Utrecht, and take a test. Afterwards, you'll receive a non-binding advice on whether the course is a good fit for you. It's a great opportunity to get to know your future classmates (and teachers) in advance.


Thank you for your interest in the student for a day event! Please keep an eye on this page for the dates of the events of the 2023-2024 academic year, or e-mail the Teaching Administration Office with special requests via the link below.

This is what our students say

Our own students know better than anyone why the History study programme is a good choice. Below you can read why they chose this programme and what makes it so unique.

Reading and writing were not my strong suits back then, but I also realized that pursuing this degree came with the amazing opportunity to improve these skills.
