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.”
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.

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.”
