Founded in 1976, Maastricht University is known for its Problem-Based Learning system and international orientation. Our small-scale ‘international classroom’ brings together people from all over the world who have different backgrounds and perspectives. And it’s these very differences that make studying at Maastricht University a unique learning experience. Maastricht is often said to feel like a little piece of ‘abroad’ right here in the Netherlands. Together with the many study-abroad opportunities enjoyed by our students, this makes studying at UM a truly international experience.Learn more!
