Writing for the Maastricht University mostly relates to web content, news & events, and brochures & publications related to UM activites, objectives, and goals. Though UM is a Dutch University, our international programmes and activies require that our communications media are in 'English unless', meaning that the default is English unless another language is required, for example for a study programme that requires Dutch or German. UM communications also apply a 'digital unless' rule, meaning that all UM publications should composed and disseminated digitally, unless a print medium is required.

Though these pages provide an overview of general rules for writing for the web and SEO, and in-depth spelling and style guide for the university is available for download, and can be used for all text composition at Maastricht University.
