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. Our study programmes are internationally oriented. They are focused on helping you get the best out of yourself and preparing you as well as possible for your future career, be it in Maastricht or anywhere else in the world. 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. Maastricht University was founded in 1976 and consists of 6 faculties, which in total offer 19 Bachelor’s programmes and 50 Master’s programmes. The majority of our programmes are taught entirely in English.Learn more!
