We have organised this information around a few key themes, and we encourage you to take a little bit of time to browse the various topics below.

  • From this academic year Maastricht University uses Canvas as the Learning Management System or LMS. In Canvas you find all course related information, assignments and tools for communication and collaboration with your peers. Students can enter their online courses in Canvas via several ‘entrances’; directly from the Student Portal (My Courses in the left blue menu), by login via a stand-alone URL, or via the Canvas app. Although we expect students to transfer to Canvas quite easy, we created several videos to explain the most important features of Canvas.
