Felix Quarnström, Student Ambassadeur Kunst, Literatuur en Samenleving

Felix Quarnström is from Finland, he has a bachelor’s degree in Art, Literature & Culture, specialisation Arts and Culture from Maastricht University and decided to come back to Maastricht for the master’s programme in Art, Literature and Society. “After my bachelor’s degree I took a gap year and moved to Berlin, like many of my fellow students. I tried to find a job but when that didn’t work out, I went back to Finland and worked a while as a radio host. I always knew that I wanted to do a master’s programme, the question was which one. I looked at semiotics, one of my favourite topics, and film-related studies. Considered other universities as well, but in the end I found I missed Maastricht. I’d really enjoyed my bachelor’s study here, so I figured I would definitely like this master’s programme as well, if not more. And I do! So far, it’s been great. I’m definitely not done with studying yet and might take up a second master’s after this year.”

      Maastricht University celebrates Mother Language Day 🎊
      21 February is the annual International Mother Language Day. The UNESCO has established this day to emphasize the importance of the language that children are taught by their parents from an early age on. Many of these languages are under pressure because of the dominance of the standard languages in education and administration. In Limburg this applies to the various Limburg dialects.

      Veldeke Krink Mestreech wants to get a wide audience for this day. Maastricht University contributes to various activities on International Mother Language Day. With the motto “Gruuts op mien Moojertaol!” (“Proud of my Mother Language”) a series of activities is organised in the city.
