Start FHML education in September

Our doors are open from September onwards, and you will be able to study as you should be: on campus! Corona will not be completely gone after the summer. Therefore, we will do everything we can to welcome you safely into our buildings. On this page we would like to explain what this means for you as a prospective student at the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences.

Curious about our faculty? Take a sneak-peek. We look forward to welcoming you!


Experience Maastricht

Being present in Maastricht gives you a rich 'Maastricht experience'. It enables you to:

  • meet fellow students and tutors/mentors in person to facilitate smooth interactions,
  • collaborate and discuss intensively with your fellow students,
  • experience the atmosphere on campus, where everything is done to provide you with a safe and hygienic learning environment,
  • participate in (small-scale) activities of study associations,
  • socialise with your fellow students individually or in a sorority/fraternity,
  • live in a lively, beautiful, international (student) city, where everything is accessible on foot or by bike and you are not dependent on public transport.

Safety in times of corona

The Dutch government is making a strong appeal to the common sense and responsibility of our citizens in fighting the crisis: Together, we’ll get coronavirus under control in the Netherlands. On the website of the Government of the Netherlands you can find information about what the Dutch government – together with other organisations – is doing.  You can check out the current roadmap of measures against coronavirus, FAQs on health, read about the education sector and many more topics.

Student life in Maastricht

To get your academic year off to a good start, various introductory events are being organised. The two most popular events in for Maastricht are the INKOM (focused on student life) and the FHML introduction days (focused on education). Besides introductory events, you can expect to find information about student associations, UM Sports and the one-stop-(information)shop for all international students!


The INKOM is the general introduction week of Maastricht for all new students of Maastricht University and Zuyd University of Applied Sciences. INKOM is a typical Dutch student life introduction, a cooperation of uni students and study assocations, focused on the student life not on the content of the educational programmes. Given the current COVID-19 crisis, INKOM 2021 will take place as a partly digital and partly physical event. But... don't worry! We are working hard to make INKOM 2021 a great edition! Block 16-20 August if you want to join the INKOM 2020. Registration opens on 28 June. Do you want the latest updates? Then follow @INKOMmaastricht on social media!

Faculty Introduction

During a one-day Faculty Introduction at the end of August, you will get to know the faculty FHML, the health campus and your fellow students. Everything is organised in such a way that it is corona-proof. The activities on that day - such as a lecture and games - are on campus. And for the whole day you will be partnered up with the students of your tutorial group, so you know each other already when education kicks of.

No upcoming events

Study associations

At FHML, there are several study associations. As a member of a study association everything is possible, but nothing is mandatory.

At the study associations you can:
 enjoy lots of activities with your fellow students;
 receive discount on books and study materials;
 get exam training and study support;
 attend lectures and workshops focused on your study programme and career;
 help to improve the educational system.

One-stop information platform for international students 

Are you an international student who is planning to come to Maastricht in August? And are you looking for information regarding Health, Transport, Housing and Finances as well as Sports, Media and Community in Maastricht? Then Mymaastricht is the place for you! is the one-stop information platform to help international students find their way in the city. They reach students via their website, blog and social media, as well as by running workshops during the University open days. Mymaastricht works with the University and the "Gemeente" (the local municipality) to help give students the best start to their life in the city.
