Students going the extra mile
Studying in Maastricht is more than learning, working and engaging in an active social life. Many students truly want to make a contribution or a change. And they don’t want to wait until after graduation to do so. Why would they? With the series 'Students going the extra mile' we proudly present these students’ stories. Students that take that extra step to make the most of themselves and their student years. Get inspired.
Women’s legal advice centre: for women, by women
They support women with legal problems on a voluntary basis, collect money to recycle waste to make light sources, set up social enterprises, or work for global health. There are many ways in which students at Maastricht University go the extra mile. Not just for their CVs, but to put their ideals into practice. And as a welcome side-effect, they make a lot of friends.
