    • Sun, tasty food... and exam stress! What a combination. If you're craving some brain food or a much needed break, look no further than Festival TREK.

    • Hey UCMers,

      I am applying for masters and need to provide some descriptions for the courses I took. If someone could please share the big course manuel (the one with all the courses available) of this year or last year that would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

      As the end academic year is a few short months away, it's time to reflect. What made YOUR year at UCM memorable?

      “My first year in Maastricht has been full of memories and milestones, but the most significant part of the experience for me has been my friends. This is the first time I’ve been part of a tight-knit group of peers who all care about each other and love to hang out, and it’s made my time here so much better. The best part is that we come from such diverse backgrounds, and yet we can all be close and enjoy each other’s company.”

      - Jasmine Brazelton, 1st year student
