FASoS News, events and stories

Latest news

  • The number of foreign students arriving at Dutch universities will not be restricted, at least for the time being. This is a good thing, according to ongoing research by Carla Haelermans from the School of Business and Economics (SBE) and Patrick Bijsmans from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASoS). “Students, including Dutch ones, perform exceptionally well in tutorial groups with a mix of nationalities. And internationalisation is the future. You can’t put restrictions on that.”

  • The Centre for the Social History of Limburg is active in research and teaching, and likes to involve society as a whole in their practices. Via citizen science, they conduct research with the help of the public.

  • The Centre for European Research in Maastricht and UM Campus Brussels often work together to create impact.
