The Maastricht Science Programme offers you the opportunity to create your own curriculum. Your own profile can qualify you for a variety of master's programmes and later for a wide range of professional fields. You have the freedom to explore your interests and abilities and to specialise in the area that suits you best.
The ability to create a unique academic profile will allow you to follow a wide variety of master’s programmes at Maastricht University and elsewhere. Your academic advisor will help you select courses for the profile you would like to build. This will help you to take the required courses to be eligible for admission into the master's programme of your choice.
Depending on the courses and skills trainings you take, you will be well-prepared for a master’s in physics, chemistry, biology or neuroscience. Or you can pursue a multidisciplinary master’s programme like systems biology or biobased materials.
The Maastricht Science Programme prepares you for a variety of career opportunities. You can become, for instance, a researcher at a university or scientific institute or a scientist at a multinational company or a hospital. You can even choose to start your own business in science or technology.

The issues that science and society will face in areas such as sustainability, energy, biobased materials, biomedical innovations and nutrition will be so complex that, apart from their own specialisation, scientists will require insights from multiple disciplines to successfully meet these challenges.
Graduates of the Maastricht Science Programme are awarded with an internationally recognised Bachelor of Science degree with a tailored curriculum.
Maastricht Science Programme organised its first ever alumn conference on 29 September 2017.
The programme included presentations from alumni about their research/work and a career advice session for new alumni and current students. Dr. Gideon Koekoek was the keynote speaker during this afternoon.
