This semester, we welcomed 200 new students from all over the world to UCR. They will be joining our already wonderfully diverse community in Middelburg; each with different talents, different dreams, and different destinations in mind, but all choosing to start their journey here, at UCR. This semester also marks the first time in many months that we are able to return to fully in-person and on-campus teaching – a sign that the tide is turning on the pandemic.  We are therefore so excited about the year ahead.

The Convocation ceremony was live-streamed on 1 September at 16:00 CET. You can view a recording below.
