University guide 2023 awards six UM bachelor’s programmes top-rated status
Eight of the 23 bachelor’s programmes at Maastricht University (UM) that were assessed have been voted the best in the country. Seventeen of them are among the top three within their discipline. Six UM programmes have also been awarded ‘Top-rated Programme’ status. The rankings were published today in the university guide Keuzegids Universiteiten 2023.
Two of the three Liberal Arts colleges at Maastricht University, University College Maastricht and University College Venlo, have again been ranked among the best in the country, and retain their Top-rated Programme quality seals. In addition, another four UM bachelor’s programmes have been awarded top-rated status: Econometrics, Medicine, the interdisciplinary programme Global Studies and the new Circular Engineering programme.
The Keuzegids Universiteiten guide assesses a variety of aspects of education. Maastricht is still ranked as the most international university in the Netherlands, and the lecturers’ level of English is rated the highest. Most UM programmes also score particularly well on the aspect of preparation for a professional career.
