Come to our Introduction Days!

You will be starting your studies at Maastricht University soon. For most first year bachelor’s and master’s students, this means the beginning a new life; a new start at a university with a different way of studying, in an unknown city, a city where you will meet new people and you will have to learn to find your way around again. Not just at the faculty, the library and the sports centre, but also the student and study associations and the area in and around Maastricht.

To make your transfer to the university, the faculty and the city of Maastricht as smooth as possible, we will be organising introduction days: the INKOM and the faculty introduction days.

Please note: at most faculties, participation in the faculty introduction days is mandatory!

For general questions about your registration at UM go to the Student Services Centre (SSC).

Both series of introduction days are important!

During the INKOM, you’ll meet new people and you’ll have the opportunity to get acquainted with student associations, student life and the city of Maastricht. During the faculty introduction days, the main emphasis will be on your programme of study and getting acquainted with your fellow students, your mentor and the faculty.

The INKOM from 21 till 25 of August

The INKOM is the introduction week for all new students in Maastricht. You can participate in various activities and attend a broad range of parties during these five days. Two experienced students will guide you around the city, and help you get acquainted with the student associations and the city of Maastricht. The INKOM will provide you with a complete immersion in Maastricht student life.

Would you like to participate in the INKOM 2017 Legends of Tomorrow? Please remember to sign up on time! The participation fee is 74 euros.

Faculty introduction days

During the faculty introduction days, you’ll receive study-related information, and you’ll have the opportunity to get acquainted with the digital learning environment and your fellow students, but you’ll also learn all about the ins and outs of your faculty at Maastricht University. Every faculty has their own programme. At most faculties, the introduction days are mandatory. You’ll receive a separate invitation to participate in the faculty introduction days. Some programmes also allow you to sign yourself up.
