Opening Academic Year 2023-2024

On Monday 4 September, we will open the academic year 2023/24 at the Theater aan het Vrijthof.

UM President Rianne Letschert will open the academic year with a speech on our sometimes unhealthy relationship with achievement and the role she thinks Maastricht University can play. Our keynote lecture will be delivered by entrepreneur Yama Saraj. We will award the Edmond Hustinx Award, the UM Student Award and the Impact Award. All in all, it promises to be an inspiring afternoon full of new insights.

You can sign up using the link in your personal invitation, which was sent out via email in the week of 26 June. Alternatively, you can follow the live stream of the academic year opening ceremony on this webpage, starting at 15.15.
