UCF is full of kind, helpful, supportive and at the same time incredibly talented and motivated people.
In my opinion, the most important skills I have acquired so far are critical thinking, argumentation, public speaking, time management, cooperation, and a sense of responsibility.
I enjoy the innovative approach to education, which is visible in both the lessons and forms of assessment. Lessons provide plenty of space for discussions, formation of arguments, and practical exercises.
I mainly started studying in Leeuwarden because of the unique programme University College Fryslân had to offer. I wanted to study in the Netherlands and Global Responsibility and Leadership matched my interests very well.
Studying at CF has brought me a lot of new experiences, friends, opportunities and (self-)knowledge. I work at CF, while also pursuing my MSc in Climate Adaptation Governance there. I have made great connections and have developed both academically and personally..
At University College Fryslân you are not only inspired to be a great student, but also encouraged to explore what it means to be part of a bigger community which you create together with everyone else at the campus. A welcoming, inclusive, and active community of which I am incredibly proud.
Being part of our faculty study association Nobis Cura Futuri (NCF) has given me the opportunity to get myself even more involved within our community..
