Maastricht Science Programme

At Maastricht Science Programme, we offer a completely new educational approach to natural sciences. Our three-year bachelor’s programme gives you the freedom to choose your own curriculum from a wide variety of courses. No need to pin yourself down to a predefined programme or force a curriculum decision if you are still undecided. You select your own set of courses each semester, while becoming familiar with your options. Your dedicated academic advisor will match curricular offerings with your particular needs and ambitions.

With our teaching methods Problem-Based Learning and Research-Based Learning you work in small groups in close interaction with fellow students and a tutor, solving real life academic problems. You learn how to think as an academic and how to work as a professional, providing you with a solid basis for the labour market. Your active participation determines the way you expand your knowledge and develop your skills. Learn from doing and get your essential hands-on experience in our modern and fully equipped laboratories at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus, one of the most innovative chemical and materials communities in the Netherlands.

We offer a bachelor's programme that is taught entirely in English. With staff and students from all over the world, we are proud of the international community at Maastricht Science Programme.

  • It's really exciting that MSP is a new programme, because you feel like you can still have an impact

      "The university that we study at or have graduated from is considered to be one of the top universities in Europe. In fact, the 5th best young university in Europe. So how is it that with such valuable skills, and such valuable experiences and diplomas most of us are struggling with finding a job?" The OUTKOM event proposal which addresses the underlying issues that prevent Maastricht from keeping students in the city has won at the EmployMaas Hackaton!💡👆🏼 #leadinginlearning #maastrichtuniversity #employmaashackathon #qualityfirst #choices #employability #students

      Have you heard that last Saturday Maastricht Student Rowing association M.S.R.V. Saurus hold the Saurus International Regatta for the fifth time? 🚣🏽‍♀️🏆
      This year, however, it was different than all the years before, as the event was four times bigger than it has ever been before. "In 2017, the body overseeing the Dutch Student Rowing decided that the SIR should officially be part of the national competition. Despite this, the race maintained its international character, as teams from Belgium and Germany were also present. The race was started by approximately 170 boats. The race and the nice atmosphere on the side attracted 750 people. One could say it was a busy day! Because of this enlargement in scale, Saurus has been preparing for the event all year in order to make it successful. Students from all over the Netherlands travelled to Maastricht and Saurus tried to give them the ultimate ‘Maastricht experience with specialty beers for everyone and ‘Limburgse vlaaien’ for the winning teams. All in all, the day was a great success and we hope to see you next year!" Paulien Brandsen, vice president of M.S.R.V. Saurus. #maastrichtuniversity #studentassociation #msrvsaurus #rowing #qualityfirst 📸 @quintentolboom
