Join the introduction days and INKOM
We have good news! During this year's INKOM, our first-year students can get to know each other, the city and UM in person, on site. This is possible because, from the end of June, the government will again allow large-scale events at occupancy rates of 100% and without a 1.5-metre distance (article in Dutch).
Within the rules
This means that, from 16 to 20 August 2021, the INKOM may include in-person events and parties in its programme. Of course, we will do this safely and responsibly and within the rules that apply at that time. As of now, we are assuming that proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test result will be required for participation in large-scale events. If this changes, we will let you know immediately.
Second-year and senior students
We will also offer our second-year students, who unfortunately had to experience INKOM primarily online last year, and our senior students the opportunity to participate in the MECC parties and the opening, among other activities.
Keep an eye on the INKOM website for the full programme, the line-up of parties at the MECC and the opening, as well as the start of the official ticket sales for both the INKOM programme and the MECC parties.
Faculty introductions do not fall under the events for which proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test result is required. Because these are considered educational activities, we will work with self-testing and rely on everyone’s sense of responsibility.
Both INKOM and the faculty 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.
