Maastricht University Undergraduate

Maastricht University (UM) is an international university located Maastricht, one of the oldest and most beautiful cities of the Netherlands. UM is internationally renowned for its innovative educational methods, dynamic research portfolio, and its diverse, international population.

The city is known for the Maastricht Treaty, which established the European Union in 1992. The University occupies traditional buildings spread throughout the city-centre and its medical faculties are based in state-of-the-art facilities in Randwyck.


Internationalism

Maastricht is the most international and fully bilingual (Dutch & English) university in the Netherlands. Over 47 % of our students and 30 % of our academic staff come from abroad, together representing about 70 different countries. Every day you will encounter different languages and cultures, and most study programmes have a decidedly international theme.

For non-native English speakers, the English-language curriculum at UM will strengthen your command of the English language and prepare you for a career in an increasingly globalised world. Most of our programmes are taught entirely in English, the most widely used international language.

Each faculty at Maastricht University has dozens of international partnerships and student-exchange agreements, and we encourage interdisciplinary and international collaboration. In addition, UM programmes place heavy emphasis on studying abroad, often including it as a core requirement for graduation.

Innovative education and research

Maastricht University is known for its use of Problem-Based Learning, an innovative, student-centred instructional method, in its bachelor's and master's programmes. Students work in tutorial groups, collaboratively seeking practical solutions to open-ended, real-world problems. Instructors act as facilitators, giving help when and where it is needed, allowing you to build independence and develop research skills. 

Research is integrated into every level of education at UM, and our research portfolio is focused on issues critical to the development of society. Each of our faculties has a set of priority research themes, and our policy of 'valorisation and enterprise' is dedicated to finding practical applications for our research output.
