Partnership agreement between Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and Maastricht University

Higher education in Limburg joins forces

Improved compatibility between each other’s study programmes and the combination of scientific and practice-oriented education and research to benefit the region, with a focus on IT/data science, health and science/chemistry: in a nutshell, this is the substance of the more intensive collaboration that Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and Maastricht University (UM) have cemented in a partnership agreement signed on 30 September 2021. The agreement has a clear goal for the students of tomorrow: students from Zuyd University of Applied Sciences will be able to progress smoothly to UM and vice versa. There will also be closer collaboration between study programmes combined with the possibility to exchange internship opportunities. The partnership between UM and Zuyd will not be starting from scratch, as this agreement builds on a rich history of collaboration between the two institutions.
