As well as the regular semester courses, students can also participate in our Summer and Winter term offerings. These courses take place in a quieter and more relaxed atmosphere than during the busy semesters, and are generally very popular, providing additional weight to any UCU curriculum.
Interesting guest lecturers visit the college to teach. We have courses taught by, for example, a state attorney from Florida, a sociolinguist and caribbean studies expert from the university of Aruba, a deaf sign language teacher from Dublin, and a lecturer from Leiden University's Centre for Terrorism and Counter-terrorism. Students benefit from the experience and expertise that these teachers bring from outside the Utrecht context.
Summer term courses are condensed in format and allow students to focus fully on a single topic. Course topics are generally interdisciplinary, and admit students on the basis of a broad range of pre-requisites. This makes for interesting groups of students with varied disciplinary backgrounds and interests, and also, therefore, for lively debate and discussion.
