The Bachelor programme Global Responsibility & Leadership of University of Groningen/Campus Fryslân has been awarded the quality label "Top Degree Programme" by the Dutch Higher Education Guide for Universities (Keuzegids) 2022. Moreover, with a total of 94/100 points, the programme received the highest score among all bachelor’s programmes in the Netherlands. The programme has received the quality label in each consecutive year since it’s foundation in 2018.

“I am truly humbled and proud by the acknowledgement of the Keuzegids”, says University College Fryslân (UCF) director dr. Indira van der Zande. “We have always aspired to create an academic environment where students and staff can actively engage in the co-creation of knowledge to contribute to solving the global challenges. As such, the UCF community itself is essential to the success of the programme and it is heart-warming to see it thriving even amidst a global pandemic. We have only just begun our journey and are bursting with ideas to further innovate the programme, always remaining true to our interdisciplinary, personalised and interactive educational philosophy. We look forward to welcoming many more students to our community and joining our adventure in Leeuwarden!"

Dean of Campus Fryslân prof. Andrej Zwitter: “It is incredible how a group of dedicated staff and student members of the faculty can create such a successful programme. What an honour and a privilege to be part of this team.”

Career preparation

The Dutch Higher Education Guide for Universities 2022 has awarded the label "Top Degree Programme'' to Bachelor's degree programmes that have achieved an overall score of at least 76 points. University College Fryslân scores 94 points in total and achieved the highest score in terms of career preparation and also stands out for the quality of its lecturers and study atmosphere. Max Eisenbart, Student Assessor and third-year student Global Responsibility & Leadership: “Studying at UCF means not only reading from a book or listening to your professor. Rather it is about learning through interaction with your classmates and teachers. This not only creates an amazing community, but also equips you with skills which will be useful in pretty much any future job you will have.”
