Enrichment projects and courses

You have many different options to choose further courses and participate in projects that deepen and broaden your study programme. 

Our exchange partnerships with more than 50 universities worldwide allow you to study abroad for a semester. Special projects range from field research excursions to East Africa, Aruba and China to Cultural Heritage internships at world-renowned museums or a Law programme in the United States.

Some examples are: 

UCU Cultural Heritage Programme (CHIP)

Learn about heritage from the various perspectives of the arts, the social sciences and the sciences. The programme brings students in contact with cultural institutions, where they gain experience of and can contribute to managing, preserving, researching, and exhibiting cultural heritage. 

Field Research Aruba

After completing a preparatory summer course in Utrecht, participating students develop a project plan within their own area of interest, for carrying out on-site in Aruba in collaboration with students from the University of Aruba and local stakeholders. Students apply their research skills to a project with societal value, engage in cultural and intellectual exchange with members of the Aruban community, and make the transition from student to independent researcher. 

Student-led Honours Seminar

The Honours Seminar course allows you to design your own course and steer your own learning. You work together in small groups of about six to ten students, inviting experts in the field to come and talk with you on your topic, and you read and write extensively on it. You have a topic supervisor from University College Utrecht assigned to your group for consultation, but you are the ones in charge.
