Innovative, high-quality and future-proof: these qualities typify the education offered by Utrecht University. For years Utrecht University has been at the forefront of educational innovation and it creates challenging programmes for groups of extra-talented and motivated students, in order to meet the international need for outstanding graduates. This is illustrated in a number of Utrecht initiatives, such as University College Utrecht and Utrecht Law College. The university is constantly working on creating even better education, with inspiring lecturers and ambitious students.
Throughout Utrecht University, students are offered interactive, small-group learning experiences provided by enthusiastic lecturers who actively contribute to improving the programmes where necessary.
Utrecht University develops programmes that meet the demands of both students and society: examples are the Selective Utrecht Medical Master's programme (SUMMA), the Academic Teacher Training for Primary Education (Academische lerarenopleiding primair onderwijs, ALPO) and a minor programme in education. The university continues to invest in innovations in teaching via the Utrecht Education Stimulus Fund.
Highest student pass rate
Of all the universities in the Netherlands, Utrecht University has the highest student pass rate for students coming from pre-university education (VWO). This success is based on the unique Utrecht education model focused on differentiation, commitment and the principle of 'the right student in the right place'.
