Are you currently enrolled in a course at UU? Please follow the guidelines given by Utrecht University. The information page on the UU site is our guideline. Please check this website continuously. 

Your teacher will inform you about the form in which courses will continue. We expect you all to have information by Wednesday 18th March at the latest. Therefore, it is important to check your students mail ( If you face difficulties in the way classes will be held, please contact us by replying to this e-mail.  

Block 4


The intakes that were planned for block 4 are all cancelled. We are really sorry, but we are not able to meet in person for a couple of weeks. We work according to the RIVM (Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) guidelines and we will constantly check the news updates given by the Dutch government. We are looking into the possibilities of continuing our program. We will update you on this as soon as the situation is more clear. 

Enrollment for already involved students or those who already had an intake

As for now, we stopped our program in anticipation of more news from Utrecht University about the date physical forms of education will start up again. Therefore, we aren't working on the enrollment for a couple of weeks. We will update you later about the process and the (for now) predicted start of block 4. 

Buddy program

We ask all our students and buddies to carefully keep contact with each other. Please, try to help each other where ever you can, but always put health in the first place. Please live by the RIVM guidelines.


Utrecht University’s Incluusion is aimed at those students with refugee backgrounds who are currently 'on hold' in emergency shelters, refugee centers or in their new houses. It offers newcomers the opportunity to participate for free in all kinds of courses offered by Utrecht University. Incluusion is a call to action to make use of this waiting period. Refugees with academic backgrounds and proper levels of English are more than welcome to apply.

"Meeting people from all kinds of backgrounds has been an enriching and educational experience for all involved. It has stimulated diversity and brought new perspectives into the classroom which have benefited students, teachers and Incluusion participants alike."
