Introduction days at FPN 2020

The Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN) is organising an essential, informative, and fun week that'll prepare you and your fellow students for your academic career at FPN. From 24-28 August you’ll engage in activities that'll inform you on practical aspects of studying at our faculty. You’ll also get the chance to meet your new classmates while you learn to work with the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) system. 

  Please note: Due to the COVID-19 situation the FPN Introduction Days will take place online. Check the table to see if the FPN Introduction Days are mandatory for you. Visit this page if you want to know more about education at FPN in Period 1 and 2.

UM Systems Training

During your time at Maastricht University (UM) you may need to arrange some aspects of your studies yourself, for example: booking courses, registering for exams and handing in your work. UM has different systems in place to make sure this all works smoothly. The UM Systems Training will show you the different systems and how to use them.

Help! I cannot attend the FPN Introduction week

The FPN Introduction Days is a mandatory event for which you will receive ECTS. Education at our faculty starts on 24 August, therefore if you miss the introduction you'll be forced to do an extra assignment in order to catch up with our fellow students. Keep in mind that the weeks after the introduction will be filled with new impressions and work to get you off to a good start, so we urge you to attend the FPN Introduction week.

  Please note: master students will need to complete their assignment within the first 4 weeks of the programme, or they will not be allowed to continue their studies

If you are unable to join your classmates on 24 August, for a valid reason, please contact us via introweek-fpn[at]maastrichtuniversity[dot]nl
