At Maastricht University we are committed to developing highly skilled, resilient and employable graduates. We equip them with academic knowledge and with the competencies they need to make the successful transition from university to employment. We support our students in setting goals and making effective plans for their future. We want to ensure that they are able to adapt to change, whether it’s change in employment opportunities, work conditions or society. We also want them to be prepared for the unknown jobs of the future.
We do this by giving students ample opportunity to develop employability competencies. These range from academic expertise and skills to self-awareness, adaptability, social responsibility and life-long learning. Students acquire these skills through our problem-based learning model, our international classroom and our high-quality educational programmes.
In addition, we offer them a comprehensive academic advising curriculum and career counselling as well as a wide range of internships and practice-based learning environments. This encourages them to tap into the enthusiasm and expertise of peers, staff and alumni. Our Brightlands Campuses are a case in point. There, students can connect with our partners, do internships, become young entrepreneurs in one of the campuses, participate in research or join practice-based projects.
