The curriculum and good trade-off between epidemiology courses and biostatistics turned out to be attractive immensely for me because this programme widely opened a gate to clinical research and evidence-based medicine. 


The huge expertise of teachers in theory and practice of epidemiology, implementation of innovations deserves all kinds of commendation. I have been positively surprised by illuminating lectures.

My time as a student at UCU was a mix of intense growth and self-discovery. At times it was quite challenging even exhausting, but looking back I would not do it differently. I am what I am today because of my time at UCU and living in Utrecht.
