University College Maastricht
University College Maastricht (UCM) and the Maastricht Science Programme. These regular study programmes fall within the family of excellence programmes due to their high level, selective admission and the innovative educational concept of ‘Liberal Arts and Sciences’. UCM has been awarded a special quality mark by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO) for the exceptional quality of its graduates.
