Diversity and inclusion

To keep our education healthy and future-proof, UMC Utrecht pays special attention to diversity and inclusion. Inclusive and accessible education benefits all our students. It helps builds bridges between students, it challenges them to think in more complex ways about their future profession, and it reduces the risk of thinking in cultural stereotypes. The inclusive mindset that our students develop is a valuable part of their professional identity which will ultimately benefit healthcare.

Work permits and visas

If you come to work at UMC Utrecht, you may have to deal with immigration procedures. Procedures differ based on nationality, the purpose and duration of your stay. Procedures are significantly more extensive if you have a non-EU nationality. Some processes will have to be initiated before you arrive in the Netherlands, while others can take place afterwards. Once you are hired, the HR department will inform you of all procedures that are relevant for you, and will assist you where necessary.
