Utrecht Educational Model

Utrecht University has always invested in education. As teachers innovate and develop, their work becomes more rewarding, and students find that their learning environment suits their ambitions and talents. This learning environment is based on the Utrecht Educational Model. The Utrecht educational model has reduced freshman drop-out rates, increased student satisfaction and improved academic outcomes. As a Utrecht University student or teacher, this is the model you will follow. What exactly does the model entail? The four most important principles of the Utrecht Educational Model are:

  • A clear distinction between the Bachelor and Master phases
  • Flexibility and freedom of choice
  • Personal and engaging teaching
  • Teacher development
