In addition to standard master's programmes, Maastricht University offers a number of programmes for professionals. These range from Executive MBAs to training in the health professions. Most applicants are seeking post-graduate studies or have been active in the labour market for a substantial period of time. The majority of the programmes are part-time, allowing students to maintain their career while furthering their education.
The programmes in the overview below lead to a master’s degree. We also offer non-degree programmes and (short) courses for professionals. Please view the Other courses overview for more information.
For many post-graduate courses there are discounts for UM alumni. For more information, please see the programme of your choice. For other alumni services you can visit our alumni pages.
Aanpak veranderen in de klas? Onderwijs verbeteren op school? Vernieuwen op basis van de laatste wetenschappelijke inzichten? Evidence based innovation – wetenschappelijk onderbouwde vernieuwing – houdt in dat je je als docent niet laat leiden door veronderstellingen of vooroordelen, maar door feiten. Ideeën voor onderwijsvernieuwing zijn er genoeg, de vraag is: wat werkt? Die vraag vormt het uitgangspunt van de master Evidence Based Innovation in Teaching (MEBIT).
The master’s in Mental Health combines theory of psychiatric disorders with a large amount of practical training. You can do a clinical internship at a mental healthcare institute or take supplementary master classes. After you’ve obtained your degree, you can continue on to a post-doctoral training programme and become a mental health psychologist or a psychotherapist. But you’ll also get all the training you need to become a PhD candidate. Other career paths include positions as a therapist, diagnostician, consultant or advisor in (special) education or working with the mentally disabled.
