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. On 20 November 2021, we welcome you at our online Master's Open Day. The whole year through, there are students to chat with, online one-on-one appointments to schedule, and live webinars and Q&A sessions to participate in.
