Bachelor's Open Day

Find out more about one of the most international universities in Europe, experience our unique approach to teaching, immerse yourself in your programme of choice, and explore our beautiful city. The next Bachelor's Open Day is on Saturday 13 October 2018.

Maastricht University (UM) is known for its International Classroom and unique, small-scale approach to teaching: Problem-Based Learning (PBL) emphasises skills relevant to the labour market of the 21st century, such as independence, critical thinking, initiative, curiosity and creativity as well as soft skills. Under the guidance of our experienced tutors, you analyse and solve relevant, complex problems in small international groups.

Almost all of our bachelor’s programmes are taught in English and we have an extensive institutional network that allows you to study abroad. We have more than 100 different nationalities among our students and staff.

Known around the Netherlands for its savoir vivre and beautiful historic centre, Maastricht is a lively and welcoming city on the convergence of Dutch, German, and French-speaking regions. Because of its intimate scale, almost everything is within cycling distance. Home to a university, a university of applied science, a conservatory as well as arts, theatre, and design academies, Maastricht boasts a large and diverse international student community and a vast variety of cultural and social opportunities.

But don’t take our word for it – come visit us and explore Maastricht.

A look back at the last Bachelor's Open Day

On Saturday 24 February, we welcomed almost 4,000 prospective students, parents and guardians. The faculty information sessions were very well attended, as was the information fair.

UM has made an effort to provide more options for parents: Hermien Miltenburg gave lectures advising them on how to best support their children in choosing a study programme, and faculties hosted parents’ cafés. The Student Room Escape in Randwyck allowed prospective students to experience how busy and fun student life can be. Also popular were the photo booths, the robot demonstrations and the quizzes.

More than a thousand visitors made use of the Maastricht University Open Day App. Having developed the app last year we relied on visitors’ feedback to improve and innovate – the app has been evaluated with 9.3 (out of 10).

Our social media reporters were on site all day to capture the best moments, which you can see on our social media tag board
