Online Open Day

Would you like to compose your own curriculum, combining at least two subjects from humanities, science and/or social science? Would you like to live on the campus where you also study, together with people from all over the world? Then have a look at University College Utrecht! For people that are curious about the world.

You can select individual sessions that you would like to add to your itinerary. All sessions are in English except for the Q&A in Dutch.

Please find these sessions under ‘Programmes T-Z > University College Utrecht (UCU)’. (Although University College Utrechts programme is called Bachelor of Liberal Arts & Sciences, do not select the option ‘Liberal Arts & Sciences (LAS)’ as it refers to the Dutch programme that is off-campus).

  • Three UCU students studying at Voltaire
  • UCU students on Campus

PROGRAMME

Because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, there will be no physical information sessions on campus during the upcoming Open Days in November. Our staff and students have worked together on creating an interesting, fun and interactive alternative online.

All sessions are scheduled twice a day, in the morning and the afternoon. The full programme will also be repeated on the Saturday. This means that you have four different timeslot options for each session.

Please find the programme below:
