Make sure that you start searching for a supervisor at an early stage. Not all Maastricht staff will be aware of the CIEL programme, but if extra information is needed you can refer to the international office.

Housing

Maastrichthousing
You can arrange accommodation with Maastrichthousing. The faculty does not act as an intermediary, so you need to make your own reservation.

Maastrichthousing is a cooperation between two student housing organizations: Guesthouse UM and the Foundation for Student Housing in Maastricht. It’s their shared goal to service housing for students, employees and guests from Maastricht University, Hoge School Zuyd and Jan van Eijck Academie.

Reservations are made on a 'first come, first served' basis so you need to arrange your accommodation as soon as possible!! Please check the website for more information and reservations.

Please take into account the introduction day, the start and end of the semester and examination dates when you book a room.

Please keep in mind you have to pay 35 euro subscription fee and first come first serve.

Warning
It is up to you to try and find a room on the private market, but if you do then keep the following in mind:
- ALWAYS check whether the address of the room/apartment offered actually exists (via google maps, for example); only too often people try to make a fast buck by renting out rooms that do not, in fact, exist.  
- NEVER transfer money in advance! There are a lot of crooks in the world, trying to swindle you out of your money. No matter how desperate you are, always check the credentials of the person subletting the room.

Teaching method

Maastricht University uses Problem Based Learning (PBL) as its key method of instruction. Students work together in small groups to tackle the subject matter which is offered in the form of real life problems from the field of study.

The problem is discussed in the tutorial group and students formulate their own learning objectives. After one or two days of individual studying you meet again with the group to discuss your findings. A tutor accompanies the group meetings to monitor the process and the level of the discussions.

PBL is a very effective method. Besides acquiring knowledge, it enables you to apply this knowledge and to analyse and solve problems. In this method of instruction active participation of students is absolutely essential. It is not only expected by the tutor or professor, but also by your fellow students. And active participation also implies that you are required to attend all group meetings.

Health and liability insurances that do not meet the requirements are the student’s own responsibility.

Payment method for public transport
The OV-chipkaart (smart card) is the main / only payment method for public transport (train, bus, metro, tram) in the Netherlands. You can buy your personal OV-chipkaart online. To top your OV-chipkaart use the special loading docks, one of which is available in the SBE building, and which you will also find at train or metro stations. Some grocery stores also have loading docks. More information about the OV-chipkaart can be found on the website of 9292.

Renting a bicycle

Traffic regulations when cycling
In the Netherlands cycling is an integral part of people's life. Traffic regulations when cycling are basically the same as for people driving a car. However, there are some things you need to be aware of  before jumping on your bike, as some of them will get you a hefty fine:

Medical care in Maastricht

In the Netherlands, if you need medical assistance you always go to the General Practitioner (GP). If the GP thinks you need more specialised expertise, you will receive a referral for a specialist in the hospital. Without this referral you cannot see a specialist in the hospital. GP’s do not usually make house calls. If you are staying in the UM Guesthouse you can go to the reception desk for more information on how to find a General Practitioner in the area, or you can go to De Poort, which is around the corner from the UM Guesthouse.

If you need medical attention when the GP can no longer be reached (so after 17.00 hrs or before 08.00 hrs, in the weekend or on public holidays), call +31 (0)43-387 77 77 and make an appointment to go to the “Huisartsenpost” near the Emergency Room of the hospital, located P. Debyelaan 25, 6229 HX Maastricht.

Only make an appointment with the Huisartsenpost if there is a real medical emergency. Otherwise, just contact a GP the next weekday.

Problem-Based Learning (PBL)

PBL was adopted by Maastricht University in 1976. PBL tries to overcome the weaknesses of traditional education by giving the students a very active role. Students do not spend hours listening to lectures – although there are some, usually at the start of the study period - but instead, per course, attend two-hour tutorial group meetings twice a week. These meetings form the core part of the study programme and are the driving force for learning. Within the tutorial groups, problems are presented as cases and researched. The international classroom underlines the benefits in the learning process of students when they work in small tutorial groups with people from different cultural backgrounds. By approaching problems from a variety of perspectives students are acquainted with different ways of seeing things and that enhances the quality of discussions. In this way, the international classroom prepares students for the rapidly globalising labour market.

A tutorial group is composed of 18 to 20 students plus a tutor: a staff member who guides the group process but who does not automatically give answers to the problems. It is up to the students to discover where their knowledge falls short and to fill in the gaps. To do so, students will have to spend a lot of time between tutorial meetings to read articles and books, and to do research in the university library.

More in-depth information about the Problem Based Learning can be found here.

Outgoing students

 
During your studies at Maastricht University you can also study abroad. The Faculty of Law has made agreements with various universities and law schools in and outside Europe which enable students enrolled here to study abroad.

Studying abroad gives an extra dimension to your studies. You get to know new people and learn different customs. You not only experience the challenge of examining a different legal system in a different language, but will also benefit from it in your professional practice later. Importantly, you get the chance to see law in its wider European context by engaging in comparative studies and putting what you learn into a broader perspective. Naturally, you also improve your language proficiency. And last but not least: it’s good for your personal development!

The universities participating in the exchange programmes have made agreements for each discipline, which has many advantages for you. For example, you don’t pay additional tuition fees. Due to the structure of study programmes at universities in other countries, study periods abroad are likely to last a minimum of four months.

Students who are going to a European partner for exchange, are often eligible for an additional grant from the EU (Erasmus). To be eligible for an Erasmus grant, you must spend at least a minimum of three months, with a maximum of one academic year, at an Erasmus partner university. It is not yet clear how many Erasmus grants our faculty will receive for the academic year 2020/2021. (More information will follow soon).

Check the list with all partner universities in- and outside Europe .
