#ForEducation | Vote June 2 - 4


The university has operated under special circumstances in the past six months.
We have great respect for the teachers, students and employees who have made every effort to ensure that education continues online. During and after these circumstances, it is important for De Vrije Student that the student is central to our university. That is why we will again be committed next year to make Utrecht University an even better place for you as a student. We are therefore proud to present our program for the coming academic year.
