Center for European Studies

The Center for European Studies (CES) at Maastricht University prides itself on providing the best possible European study abroad experiences inside and outside the classroom. Back in 1989, CES began as a pioneer in bringing international students into the Maastricht University classroom and for more than 30 years CES has been organising comprehensive, English language study abroad programmes for international students.

      Have you heard about the Shirati Food Program? This initiative, which supplies meals for patients in the Shirati hospital in Tanzania, was set up by a UM student. Together with another UM student (CES student assistant Tom Phillips), she has started a new project to collect money for this programme. Two hundred t-shirts (black or white with a breast pocket made from material from Tanzania) have been made and are being sold at Cato by Cato and With Love Burrito. Make sure to buy a t-shirt the next time you grab lunch at one of these places and support this amazing initiative!

      One of our spring semester students is doing an Insta take-over. Follow us on Instagram to get a glimpse in the life of a CES student!

      "Hello! My name is Ellen and I’ll be giving you a glimpse into my life here at Maastricht for the next couple of days. I am an exchange student from the University of Arkansas where I major in Fashion Business. Follow along with me this week as I tour The Hague, learn about Delftware, and of course eat a lot of great Dutch food!!" @ellenmertes
