Where you'll study

With about half of its students and faculty from abroad, internationalization is anchored into the core values of Maastricht University (UM). Thanks to its high-quality research, career-minded study programs, and small tutorial group learning style, UM has quickly built a solid reputation as one of the best young universities of the world. The university is in the city center and occupies landmark buildings. Maastricht is a compact university town at the southernmost tip of the Netherlands where nearly everyone commutes on bikes. Studying here, you’ll get the best of modern city lifestyle, history and culture, and nature. A ten-minute bike ride takes you into the hilly countryside with stunning green landscapes and storybook villages. A truly international city, you’ll hear foreign languages in the streets, cafés, and markets.
