UCLL is proud to be one of the nine HEI testing partners of the Accelerate Future HEI team, as it is in our DNA to always accelerate and move forward. Our Moving Minds DNA is the UCLL educational vision, which aims to deliver bachelor-proof alumni to society. You don’t just become a moving mind, you choose it! Every student with a strong and authentic personality, broad-minded and not averse to thinking outside the box, can become a real Moving Mind at UCLL.
