Maastricht University's Language Centre offers a broad range of language services to students, staff, companies, organisations and private individuals. We help them communicate effectively in an international environment. From language courses in modern languages such as English, French, German and Spanish to the translation and editing of a wide variety of documents – the Language Centre has something to offer for everyone.
In August 2017, the Language Centre received the final quality hallmark of the Blik op Werk Institute.
Next to our open courses, we also offer language coaching or tailor-made training programmes designed specially to suit your needs and objectives.
