University College Venlo

University College Venlo (UCV) is unique. You follow your interests and select your own courses. This enables you to study issues related to Food, Nutrition & Health in an interdisciplinary manner. With the help of your personal academic advisor, you build a tailor-made bachelor's programme. The central part of your study programme is made up by courses within the concentration of your choice: Social Sciences or Life Sciences. In the Social Sciences concentration, you can choose courses in fields such as Psychology of Eating, Economics and Behavioural Change. The Life Sciences concentration offers courses like Biology, Epidemiology of Food, Biochemistry and Datamining. Combining courses from different disciplines will help you develop a distinct academic profile, perfecty adapted to the Master’s programme or professional position you aim for.
