Looking for Bachelor students for a Utrecht University photoshoot

Are you starting your Bachelor’s or are you a second year Bachelor’s student at Utrecht University? Are you looking for an unforgettable experience next to your studies? Sign up for our professional Bachelor’s photoshoot 2017 and become one of the new faces of Utrecht University!


We would like to show a realistic image of students in this shoot. So forget about the stereotype cover boy or girl. It doesn’t matter if you’re tall or small, black or white, in a wheelchair, with or without piercings or tattoos: everyone is welcome. So please sign up!

What are you going to do?

Together with some other Bachelor’s students you will participate in a photoshoot at different locations in Utrecht. We will make pictures that show a small group of students together, but it is possible that your face will be displayed separately from the group later on, making you one of the faces of our new Bachelor’s campaign. In preparation for the job, you will participate in a test shoot. We want you to act as natural as possible, as if the camera is not there.

What’s in it for me?

For participating in the shoot you will earn €40 up to €75, depending on if we will display your face separately later on.


You should be available on the last week of August and in the first week of September. The specific dates will follow after the selection rounds.

What are the requirements?

  • You are available in August and September;
  • You need to sign an image rights declaration and assignment contract;
  • You are not allowed to drastically change your hair in August and September;
  • When signing up, you should send us a recent photo of yourself together with your mobile phone number
  • You must show some courage, motivation and positive attitude.

Selection procedure

After you signing up, you will receive a confirmation from us. Afterwards we will let you know if you made it through the first selection round. During this selection round, you will have an interview and we will make a picture of you. After that you will hear if you are selected to be one of the faces of our new Bachelor’s campaign!

Want to sign up?

You have to sign up before 19 August by sending an email to Roswitha Volten of Communications and Marketing of Utrecht University: r.e.s.volten@uu.nl.  Please include a recent digital picture (in color) of yourself with good quality and mention the name of your Bachelor’s programme and the year of study you are in.
