Where does Maastricht University’s international strength lie?
Maastricht is the most international and fully bilingual university in the Netherlands. Every day you will encounter different languages and cultures, and most study programmes have a decidedly international theme. UM bachelor's and master's programmes place heavy emphasis on studying abroad, often including it as a core requirement for graduation. Our faculties have dozens of international partnerships and student-exchange agreements, and we encourage interdisciplinary and international collaboration.
Our academic environment
This focus on internationalism extends to the classroom, where interaction with students from different cultures, experiences and traditions impacts the education of each person. Interaction using Problem-Based Learning requires that students directly engage one-another to tackle each question and issue. Various perceptions are immediately brought to the fore as students establish what each person already knows and set learning objectives together.
Our country teams
Students from every country are welcome to apply to study at Maastricht University. For some countries we have created specific country sections, accessible from the banner on the right.
