University College Venlo is a three-year Liberal Arts and Sciences programme with a focus on Sustainable Health, Nutrition & Business taught entirely in English. It is meant for students with a broad academic interest, who do not want to limit themselves to a programme focused on a single academic discipline. UCM offers courses in almost all academic disciplines. Each semester you construct your own programme from the courses offered. At the end of the first year you opt for one of the two concentrations: Social Sciences or Life Sciences. Together with your academic advisor, you discuss your ambitions for the future and choose courses that fit your plans. Next to courses in academic disciplines, you also enroll in an extensive skills training programme. Here you learn how to set up and conduct scientific research; you work on your debating skills; and you practice how to present ideas in a clear and persuasive way.
