LAS Open Days 2017

UCF opens its doors twice a year to give a more detailed and in-depth view of the Bachelor program Liberal Arts and Sciences. Read more about the upcoming LAS Open Days 2017.

LAS Graduation Ceremony 2016

In October 2012, 78 pioneer students started their LAS studies and from the beginning became part of the fascinating process of developing UCF. Four years later, on October 15, 2016, the University, UCF, students, graduates, families and friends came together to celebrate the first LAS Graduation – a milestone for each student and for the College.

Erasmus Prize for Liberal Arts and Sciences

UCF has established a tradition with the yearly award ceremony for the Erasmus Prize for Liberal Arts and Sciences combined with an external UCF guest lecture. The Erasmus Prize is funded by the Sparkasse Freiburg-Nördlicher Breisgau. 

UCF Lecture Series

UCF regularly hosts university and broader public lecture series (usually in German). In the past years, we invited experts from the University of Freiburg and beyond to talk about the topics Bildung (Winter Semester 2012/13), Wissen (Winter Semester 2013/14), and Methoden (Winter Semester 2014/15).

In Winter Semester 2016/17, UCF is hosting a Lecture Series in a new format and under the headline "Kontroversen und Konvergenzen: Wissenschaften an ihren Schnittstellen": This Lectures Series will bring together researchers from different disciplines, from the natural and the social sciences as well as from the humanities, to discuss a topic that lies at the intersection of their research areas. All meetings will be held in German. The full program is available here


University College Freiburg was founded and welcomed its first generation of LAS (Liberal Arts and Sciences) students in 2012. Together with the very first award ceremony for the "Erasmus Prize for the Liberal Arts and Sciences" University College Freiburg also celebrated its Inauguration in 2013.
