The needfor a different education

Need of society

Need of students

Talented students choose…

… not to choose to limit him/herself to one discipline

… to be stimulated by other ambitious students, top teachers and peers of different backgrounds

Education concept: Liberal Arts & Sciences

A different education

Liberal Arts & Sciences

  • wide range of subjects in social science, scienceand humanities
  • provide solid foundation for many different career paths

Liberal Arts & Sciences in the Netherlands

  • Liberal Arts & Sciences degrees are provided by University Colleges, which are connected to prominent local research universities
  • There are three main features that all University Colleges have in common:
    • Excellence: selective & prestigious honors programme
    • Small scope learning: less people in a class and more teacher-to-student contact hours
    • Residential campus: living and studying together creates a binding culture amongst the students
