At University College Roosevelt students design their own program by choosing from more than 200 subjects in four departments: Arts and Humanities, Engineering, Social Science and Science.

The ideal UCR student is eager to learn, social, curious and broadly interested. In the best tradition of a liberal arts and sciences education, students at UCR do not only grow academically, they also find the opportunity to develop as individuals who take responsibility for their own social and learning environment, as well as for civic and political challenges within the wider world.

Located in the south-west of The Netherlands, UCR boasts a unique historic inner-city campus by the sea with guaranteed housing for the full duration of the program. The close-knit academic community of no more than 600 students and 70 dedicated faculty members (60% of whom are non-Dutch, with over 60 nationalities represented) is an important aspect of life at UCR. A choice for UCR is an out of the box choice for a small town university where opportunities to make it your own are abundant!
