Student introduction week (INKOM)

Student introduction (INKOM) part at the MECC

If you start your studies at UM in September, you will be invited to participate in the student orientation programme in August. The programme consists of a general orientation week (INKOM) followed by an introduction to the faculty.

During INKOM, you will be introduced to Maastricht and to various aspects of student life here. This will provide you with an ideal opportunity to get your bearings and to make some new friends. Representatives from many social, sports and student associations in Maastricht will introduce themselves to you during the event. We recommend that you participate in this introduction week. You can find more information on the INKOM website.

Faculty orientation
The faculty orientation is an introduction to studying. During the orientation, you will meet your new fellow students and be provided with information about the faculty organisation, the building in which you will be studying, the teaching system, etc. You will also receive materials that you will need for your study, such as course manuals, schedules and a study guide.
