Keuzegids: Campus Fryslân once again has best bachelor programme

According to the ‘Keuzegids Universiteiten 2024’, the UG study programme global responsibility and leadership, which is taught at Campus Fryslân, is once again the best bachelor programme in the Netherlands.

The study programme is the best for the third year running; last year it received 97 out of 100 points. This year, the score is even higher: 99 out of 100. The score is based on the National Student Survey, which means it’s dependent on how students feel about their study programme.

Another nine UG programmes were classified as top programmes by the Keuzegids (they got 75 points or more). Another Campus Fryslân programme, data science & society, also scores highly, receiving 88 points.

The other programmes include minorities & multilingualism (88 points), religious sciences (85 points), archaeology (83 points), liberal arts & sciences (83 points), dentistry (83 points), Middle Eastern studies (77 points), chemical engineering (77 points) and English language and culture (76 points).

Best in category

Three UG programmes, instead of being named top programme, were marked as the best in their category by the Keuzegids. These are movement sciences, media studies, and artificial intelligence.

Rector magnificus Jacquelien Scherpen is happy with the news: ‘It shows that our university excels in different types of programmes, whether they’re focused on language or on technology. We can all be proud of that.

Classical universities

The UG is in fourth place of the classical universities in the Netherlands. Utrecht is at the top, followed by Nijmegen, Leiden, and Groningen. The VU and UvA, both from Amsterdam, are at the bottom. The differences between the universities aren’t large, sometimes even negligible.

In terms of internationalisation, a current hot topic with politicians in The Hague, the UG programme international and European law stands out: 89 percent of students in this programme are from abroad, making it the most international programme out of all the Dutch universities.
