For the second time in a row, the Keuzegids (guide to select a University/programme) has awarded the Top Programme quality label to the BSc. Global Responsibility & Leadership at University College Fryslân. This puts University College Fryslân in the top three of University Colleges in the Netherlands.
The Keuzegids Universities 2021 assigns the label Top rated programme to bachelor's programmes that have a total score of 76 points or more in the assessment. Global Responsibility & Leadership achieved 86 points, two points more than in 2020. There is a separate guide for the master's programs that will be published in Spring 2021.
Prof. Andrej Zwitter, Dean of the University of Groningen/Campus Fryslân: “It is a great achievement that University College Fryslân is among the top names in the Netherlands only two years after its start. This is a tremendous appreciation for all employees who are dedicated to our students on a daily basis and encouragement to keep up the good spirit.”

This is a great recognition of all the efforts and involvement by our academic and professional staff, who together are truly committed to making it an excellent programme.
