Please be aware that this experience day is specifically meant for students who are interested in the bachelor’s degree Liberal Arts and Sciences of University College Maastricht.

The spots for the experience day are limited, so make sure to register on time. This experience day will take place online via the communication platform Zoom.

How does a UCM experience day work?

In order to make the best out of the little time available during the online experience day, we require participants to do some preparation in the week prior to the event. This preparation takes a maximum of 2 hours and involves watching informational videos about the programme structure and an introduction to the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) teaching method, as well as some minor reading to prepare for the PBL tutorial.

During the event, participants meet current UCM students and engage in a PBL tutorial, led by student ambassadors and tutors. After the PBL tutorial, there is a live Q&A session in which prospective students can ask current UCM students and our student recruiter any questions they might still have.

The online experience day will take about 3.5 hours.
