UCF within the University of Groningen

University College Fryslân (UCF) is an integral part of the UG/Campus Fryslân and the larger University of Groningen.

Connected knowledge institute

UG/Campus Fryslân is a connected knowledge institution with a focus on four research flagships related to societal themes in the region and abroad. At the graduate level, there will be ten Master's programmes and over 50 PhD positions, while UCF is the undergraduate component of the Campus. UG/Campus Fryslân will be located at the Beurs in Leeuwarden, the city’s completely renovated 140-year-old stock exchange building in Leeuwarden. As an undergraduate, you will therefore have the unique opportunity to work closely together with academics from all levels and participate in research on a variety of areas.
