Quality of education

By converting the basic bursary for students, an extra approximately EUR 1.2 million has been made available for the UMC Utrecht Medical faculty from 2020 until May 2024 to continue improving the quality of education. In 2019, in cooperation with students and lecturers, we drew up a multi-year plan for spending these quality funds. In 2021 we used it for instance to take a look at student welfare, and provided extra coaches and psychologists for students. We also started with a ‘flipped classroom’ initiative, which is an activating form of teaching where students become truly involved and are challenged to learn. In addition, we launched Student Centraal : a website with everything you need to know about the quality funds and projects developed in this regard. Because this money belongs to the students, and therefore their input and involvement is crucial.
