At Maastricht University you can learn to be any of these and more. Our programmes will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to successfully step into your professional career.
Why do you choose a specific programme?
- you find a programme interesting
- you want to study or do an internship abroad
- you hope to find a challenging job in your area of expertise after you graduate
Programmes such as medicine, for example, already give you a clear idea of what the career possibilities are: you're most likely to become a doctor. But there is still a lot to choose from. What specialty are you going to choose? Surgery, paediatrics, radiology, or neurology? You can also become a researcher, or would you rather work with Doctors withouth borders? Other programmes such as European Studies, Knowledge Engineering, University College Maastricht, Maastricht Science Programme or Economics and Business Economics enable you to choose from an even wider range of career possibilities.
From graduation to employment
Problem-Based Learning is highly effective, as can be seen from the achievements of our graduates. In the labour market they are considered independent, assertive professionals, to whom analysing problems, structuring information, working as part of an international team, conducting and leading discussions and presenting ideas is second nature.
What are UM graduates doing now?
UM graduates can be found all around the globe, for instance, doing research in Cambridge and Harvard or working from multinationals in countries as varied as Belgium, England, China, the United States, Gambia, Turkey or Dubai.
Not everyone wants to work in business, commerce or politics after they graduate. Maybe you want to become researcher. During your studies at UM you can already prepare yourself for a career in scientific research.
