Another Master’s Open Day success
Crisp but sunny and dry autumn weather helped Maastricht University to another successful Open Day on Saturday. The six faculties welcomed 1582 prospective master’s students looking to learn more about the programmes on offer.
The information markets, workshops and presentations about individual programmes were well-attended. The visitors took the opportunity to meet current master’s students and get to know more about their experience with studying and living in Maastricht. UM staff were at hand to share information about applications and admissions and offer career advice.
Impressions from the Open Day on 30 November 2019
Two-thirds of the visitors were Dutch, most of the foreign students came from Germany, Belgium, Italy and Romania. The most popular faculties were the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Sciences, the School of Business and Economics and the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience, in that order.
The feedback from visitors was mainly positive. For Tom de Vries from the western Dutch town of Reewijk, it was the first time in Maastricht. “A very nice and welcoming city and the local pie is just superb. I have come here to learn more about Data Science for Decision Making. Actually, I had no expectations, but the presentations were good and fascinating. I have done finance and so I’m reorienting myself, but my first impression here is excellent.”
“I loved it," said an enthusiastic Emily Olsen from Boston. “A warm welcome and really informative. I came for UNU-Merit and learned a lot about working for the UN, visa applications and housing. Of course, this is a small community, but the river Maas is gorgeous. ”
