Student Project Team (SPT)
The Student Project Team (SPT) consists of four students who work together for one academic year to make Maastricht University (UM) more student oriented. The SPT is involved in many projects at different UM departments and external organisations. It also develops its own projects for UM students.

The name says it all: projects. The SPT designs, develops and contributes to UM projects, always with a view to the student perspective. These projects include:
- managing the Student Panel: the SPT organises panel sessions for various departments within and outside UM in which students provide feedback on various UM projects
- developing a student-friendly environment for the new campus on the Tapijn site
- ensuring that the Student Portal caters to the needs of students
- participating in working groups involved in the Employability project, which seeks to make students more employable and UM more career oriented
- managing the UM building on the Gebroeders Hermansstraat, where student associations can book rooms and organise meetings free of charge
- organising the Student Idea Competition, in which students can attend workshops, present their business idea to an expert jury and win up to €400 to kick-start their idea
- increasing the response rate for the Student Monitor
- developing projects that benefit UM students, such as the Sustainability and Development Career Day, the Exchange Database and the Skills Academy.
The Student Panel
The Student Panel is composed of roughly 70 students who regularly discuss topics of concern to both the university and its students. This provides the SPT with insight into students' experiences and ideas on different topics. The feedback is used by many UM departments as well as external organisations.
