University College Venlo shares first place as most highly appreciated bachelor's programme in the Netherlands

National Student Survey: UM scored well with regard to internationalisation

Just like last year, students were generally quite positive about the Maastricht University (UM) study programmes. Fourteen of the seventeen themes showed increased appreciation compared to last year, with UM doing particularly well and scoring above average with regard to the new theme of 'internationalisation'. The theme that all UM students were very positive about was group size. Maastricht University had the highest response rate of all Dutch universities: 7549 Maastricht students completed the survey. The score they gave for 'degree programme in general' was 4.11, slightly better than last year's 4.10. The youngest UM study programme, University College Venlo, received the highest score, yielding a shared first place as most highly appreciated bachelor's programme in the Netherlands.
