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.
Unfortunately, due to economic considerations, the Maastricht University Language Centre finds itself obligated to cease providing its Translation and Editing Service. We will no longer be providing this service effective 1 April 2018. We understand that this poses a major inconvenience to our loyal partners.
The Language Centre offers programmes that prepare you for the NT2 State Exam programme II (integration candidates with a higher level of education). Learn more
Next to our open courses, we also offer language coaching or tailor-made training programmes designed specially to suit your needs and objectives.
