      "We are a small class of 30 students and we bonded quickly because the programme provides for more contact hours than most courses at Maastricht University, and because of its focus on group work. The annual EPA Brussels trip in November, when we visited several consultancies and institutions, brought us even closer, and so did the spontaneous get-togethers we love to organise." Ilaria is the student ambassador for our master's programme European Public affairs. Read her entire article here: https://bit.ly/2Fvo22Y
