Ask a student

All our master's programmes have their own student ambassador: someone who is presently doing the programme him/herself, and is glad to answer your questions. Either during an Open Day or via social media.

The student ambassador for the Health Sciences Research master is Thorben.
He has a Facebook page and an Insta account on which he shares his experiences about the programme, life in Maastricht, and much more. You can also contact him with your questions about the programme and about (student) life in Maastricht; he's happy to help you with your study choice, as previous student ambassadors helped him with his.
