MSS’s mission is to offer education in the summer period that is complementary to the traditional educational tasks of the university. The Summer School increases accessibility of knowledge accumulated at the institute to anyone interested in it.

Maastricht Summer School experiences the special ambiance of teaching and attending classes in the summer: both students and professors are highly motivated, friends are being made and of course the long summer days brings a smile to our faces.

The institute

“Maastricht University stands out for its innovative approach to learning and international outlook. With almost 16,000 students and 4,000 staff, it offers a wide choice of academic programmes, all of which are designed to bring out the best in its students. Maastricht University can easily call itself the most international university in the Netherlands, almost 45% of its students and more than 30% of the teaching staff comes from abroad. This creates an international atmosphere that's attractive to Dutch as well as international students and employees.

Maastricht University has used Problem-Based Learning (PBL) ever since it was founded and has been an expert in this field for over 35 years. PBL is more than just acquiring knowledge; it’s about exchanging knowledge in a challenging and effective way. After all, Maastricht University is "Leading in Learning". Maastricht University’s research portfolio continues to attract national and international top researchers. But the university also believes in young talent. That’s why it integrates research into every level of its education.”
