What can you expect during the Campus Brussels Bachelor's Event?
Information sessions start at 11:30, 12:30 and 13:30 hours. First, there will be a word of welcome by Sophie Vanhoonacker, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, who will tell you a few things about Maastricht University, its bachelor’s programmes and the Problem-Based Learning model.
During the sessions, be sure to put your questions to UM students and alumni. They will be able to tell you more about their experiences at Maastricht University and about life as a student in the most international student city in the Netherlands.
You can visit the information market before and after each information session. It will offer you specific details about the bachelor's programmes, the admission requirements and practical matters such as hunting for a student room, for example. The information market will be open from 11:00 to 15:00.

Watch a day in the life of UM student Pablo!
Small classes and a special approach to education prompted Pablo to enrol at Maastricht University. An extra benefit, he says, is the international composition of the student population, which gives you many different points of view and different approaches to the same problems.
