The BSc Global Responsibility & Leadership (GRL) programme at University College Fryslân is a scientifically rigorous, inter- and transdisciplinary programme dedicated to addressing global challenges and finding local solutions. Our three year bachelor programme is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and consists of input from Human and Social Sciences, Natural Sciences and Information Technology.
Our three year Bachelor programme is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and is dedicated to addressing global challenges and finding local solutions.
In the first year, you take courses spanning the Human and Social Sciences, Natural Sciences and Information Technology. Thereafter, you specialise through one of three Majors, which allows you to tailor the programme to your own interest.
In the latter two years of the programme, you have the opportunity to put the theory learned in the classroom to practice by completing Living Lab projects in collaboration with local, national and international partners. In the final year, you also have the option to go on exchange to an international university or complete a pre-master in preparation for a Master's degree.
Please bear in mind that the GRL programme is selective so you will need to pass a selection procedure before you are admitted.
Studying at UCF is inspiring me every day. In the first half a year I have already learned many new things about the world but also myself. The program is very broad and introduced me to many new interesting subjects such as programming and global health. We learn to think about problems from different perspectives: economic, political, environmental, social, local, global, etc. In such projects, we can really apply our broad knowledge to local issues.
