UCR has many international teaching and research collaborations and is also strongly connected to the province of Zeeland and Utrecht University. This is also reflected in the strong belief that facing humanity’s challenges requires a focus on both the local places in which they are experienced and a truly global approach to understanding and answering them.
Our greatest capital in joining the global and the local is that our students come from over 50 different nations and live and study together. Discussing challenges of sea level rise, migration, world trade agreements and more, in a classroom with students from a dozen different countries offers an entirely different—and much stronger—context for learning than a less diverse setting would. We offer courses in world history, world literature, Asian religion, anthropology, human rights law, international relations, modern languages and culture, sustainability, energy transition — and so much more.
Apart from a complete semester abroad on exchange, you may do shorter earth science fieldwork in the Eiffel mountains, follow an archaeology workshop in Athens, join an art history excursion to Rome, or work with indigenous peoples in Mexico.
Our international community in Middelburg is our base, but the world is our home.
Roosevelt Junior is the successor of the Wetenschapsknooppunt Zeeland (“Science Junction”), which was established by the University College Roosevelt in 2012 and is geared towards bringing science into primary schools in Zeeland. Roosevelt Junior targets schools in the region, therefore, further information will be listed in Dutch below.
Een belangrijke activiteit van Roosevelt Junior is het Kids College. Kids Colleges zijn woensdagmiddaglezingen voor kinderen uit de groepen 6, 7 en 8 in de regio over wetenschap in de breedste zin van het woord. In deze colleges komen kinderen op een laagdrempelige en boeiende manier in aanraking met wetenschap.
