Overview

Utrecht University is a public research university based in the city of Utrecht in the Netherlands. Having been in existence for over 380 years, the university is known as one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the Netherlands.

Utrecht University currently offers over 200 bachelor's, master's, and PhD programs, spread across seven faculties, including the Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Geosciences, and the Faculty of Science. The university is also home to graduate schools for law, medicine, and veterinary medicine. Most of UU's programs are offered in Dutch, but students can also pursue a number of bachelor's and master's programs taught in English. In addition to these academic programs, UU offers programs for continuing education, online courses, MOOCs, and blended learning opportunities.

Students at Utrecht University also have the opportunity to participate in subject-specific and interdisciplinary honors programs. Additionally, over 200 summer courses in a diverse range of disciplines are also available through the Utrecht Summer School, which the university operates with other Dutch universities.

Utrecht University traces its roots to the Illustrious School, founded to provide education to Protestant preachers. The school was granted university status in 1636, officially getting renamed Utrecht University. The university flourished despite competition from other institutions and schools in the area, later allowing the enrollment of women and establishing botanical and astronomical observatories. In 1815, Utrecht officially became a state university.

In addition to its faculties, the university is currently affiliated with three teaching institutes: University College Roosevelt, University College Utrecht, and Centre for Academic Teaching. The university's campus has also expanded to include Science Park De Uithof, which is home to the UU's main university library and the university's teaching hospital, University Medical Center Utrecht .

Aside from its longevity, Utrecht University is known for its role in promoting scientific education and discovery in the Netherlands. It was the first university to teach students through educational laboratories, which allowed for practical learning. The university has also been historically associated with leading scientists in biology, chemistry, and meteorology, and many of its alumni have gone on to win the Nobel Prize and the Spinoza Prize.

Utrecht University continues to focus on advanced research, which is also a central theme of its Strategic Plan. Many of the university's research projects are centered on the themes of sustainability, life sciences, institutions for open societies, and dynamics of youth. Researchers at the university also undertake interdisciplinary studies through collaborative research hubs.
