Our events in Maastricht may be cancelled because of the coronavirus, but we still have plenty of online ways to answer your questions and give you a feel of what it is like to study at the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences. There are students to chat with, a Virtual Open Day to visit (including a 360-degree virtual tour), and we are organising a virtual Experience Day as we speak.
Meet Eleonora: the student ambassador for the bachelor's in Biomedical Sciences.
On her Instagram account she shares her study programme experiences, moments of her life in Maastricht, and much more. Follow her to get a sneak peek of your possible future!
Also, if you have questions about the programme and/or about (student) life in Maastricht, don't hesitate to get in touch with Eleonora through her Instagram page; she's happy to help you with your study choice, as previous student ambassadors helped her with hers.
