Online education

At Utrecht University, we offer several online education programmes.

Open online courses

Our free 'massive open online courses' (MOOCs) are courses which are open to anyone. These can be taught to groups of thousands of students.

Private online courses

Utrecht University organises paid courses in which participants receive extra guidance, through an Online Learning Environment, from an instructor as well as from an e-moderator. Peer interaction is an important aspect in these courses. These courses are being taught in small groups (15-20 participants).

The private online courses can be found at Elevate.

Online Master's

Looking for a postgraduate programme that focuses on epidemiology? Utrecht University offers a complete online Postgraduate Master's Programme in this field. The modules of this Master can be followed separately.

IT TOOLS and BLENDED LEARNING within the university

Through the programme Educate-it, the university supports its teachers and students. They are working on future-proof education that uses IT tools to the full potential and incorporates blended learning.
