Why Maastricht University
Students apply to Maastricht through the Center for European Studies (CES). CES provides a "full-package service" allowing international students an east transition into Dutch university life. Maastricht is one of the best and most international universities in the Netherlands, with students from all across the globe.

Academic Highlights

Maastricht University uses the acclaimed Problem-Based Learning (PBL) system. Programs offer something for almost every major. Unlike other study abroad programs, CES integrates study trips into each academic program. These trips are designed to give students real-world experience with the subject matter. Speak with a European Parliamentarian about EU expansion or question the Press Officer for NATO Headquarters in Brussels about the was in Afghanistan. Learn about the painting of the Dutch Golden Age in a museum or walk around the site of the famous Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes forest. Discuss human rights issues with a prosecutor at the International Criminal Court in The Hauge or talk to a European business executive about managing production across international borders. 

Student Life

UM has over 13,000 students, 50% coming from over 70 different countries. Maastricht has endless opportunities to enrich your study abroad experience through volunteer opportunities, sports, free academic lectures, and immersion into Dutch society. Most students stay in the international student Guesthouse of the University. It is home to international students from all over the world and is a great place to meet people and make friends.  

Living in Maastricht

Located on the border between the Netherlands and Belgium, Maastricht is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, which is reflected in the beautiful old architecture, from the medieval town ramparts, to the cobblestone paving of alleys and streets, seventeenth century facades and a Roman bridge. Maastricht has everything a student could wish for: a beautiful historic city centre, countless numbers of inviting sidewalk cafés, pubs and restaurants, lively festivals throughout the year, sports facilities, and more! It is conveniently located in the heart of Europe with major capitals such as Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, and London only a short train ride away. Thought cheese, windmills, tulips and clogs seem to dominate the image of the Netherlands, it is famous for much more. From breathtaking art of the Dutch Golden Age painters (Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Vermeer) to state-of-the art water management (the Dutch Delta Works are called one of the seven wonders of the modern world); from influential multi-nationals to the International Court of Justice in the Hague; from pioneering civil rights to the founding of New York (originally New Amsterdam), things to will be an endless journey. Living in the Netherlands is an unforgettable experience. Many students who originally came for study abroad at CES have returned for work or graduate studies.

Department of Knowledge Engineering: Information for Visiting Students


While abroad, students continue to pay their Case tuition rather than the tuition at their new institution. In addition there are several expenses students’ financial aid can potentially help to fund. These are listed in the attachments below.
