Meet our students

Students at University College Utrecht are a hugely international group. While about a half of our students are Dutch, the other half are students with more than 50 different nationalities. The campus offers plenty of opportunities for cross-cultural encounters, deepening of intercultural understanding, and for friendships across the globe.

The international character of University College Utrecht also implies a number of obligations for all students and staff members. We are sensitive about the fact that individual students may at first feel isolated or excluded and we act accordingly, so that everybody can feel accepted.

The international composition and diversity of the student body is also an important asset in many classes, where diversity of perspectives matter. The multiplicity of students’ cultural, linguistic and geographical backgrounds is often actively used in classroom discussions to facilitate richer understanding of the issues at hand.
