University College Utrecht is part of Utrecht University. It was founded in 1998, as the first university college in the Netherlands. We offer a three-year bachelor programme in Liberal Arts and Sciences. All students live on our residential campus.
University College Utrecht is modelled broadly on American college campuses: all buildings are located together on our historic site, including student accommodation, classrooms, social facilities and staff offices. Our students are selected against criteria which highlight their academic and extra-curricular potential.
At University College Utrecht, students are strongly encouraged to take active roles both on and off the campus, whether it be organizing student activities, volunteering in the local neighborhood, participating in cultural or academic workshops, or playing sports. A unique spirit of community and participation at University College Utrecht means that students learn, develop and enjoy life both inside the classroom and outside it.
All students graduate with a degree from Utrecht University, either a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts.
