Maastricht University is an international research institute that offers extensive exchange and study abroad programs and research collaborations with partner universities and institutions throughout the world. Instead of lecture-based education, Maastricht focuses on Problem-Based Learning, where students work together in small tutorial groups to solve problems taken directly from their chosen field of study.

  • Located in the heart of Europe, with over 100 nationalities, UM is home to the most international student body in the Netherlands.
  • The majority of its programs embrace international themes and are taught either entirely or partly in English.
