Based in Europe, focused on the world. Maastricht University is a stimulating environment. Where research and teaching are complementary. Where innovation is our focus. Where talent can flourish. A truly student oriented research university. Maastricht University (UM) is the most international university in the Netherlands and one of the best young universities in the world. Located in the heart of Europe, the university stands out for its international character, innovative education model and multidisciplinary approach to research and education.
At UM, we work with the cooperative education model called Problem-Based Learning (PBL) that provides a small-scale and personal approach where knowledge is born in discussions that go beyond simple memorisation and a shallow understanding of concepts. Research in UM is inspired by topical issues such as sustainability, European integration, healthy ageing and the influence of technological developments on society. We believe that education should be centred on you, the student. And to us, you're not one of many students filling a seat in a crowded lecture hall. Instead, you're a contributing member of our academic community.
To study in Maastricht is to study with an international perspective. When compared to other universities in the Netherlands and its surrounding countries, Maastricht University has the highest ratio of international students, representing all corners of the globe. Almost half of our students and one third of our academic staff come from abroad, together representing over 100 different nationalities. This international flavour is infused into every aspect of our education and student life.
