European and international while maintaining ties to the region

Maastricht University (UM) stands out for its innovative approach to learning and international outlook. With almost 16,000 students and 4,000 staff, UM offers a wide choice of academic programmes, all of which are designed to bring out the best in its students. UM can easily call itself the most international university in the Netherlands; almost 52% of our students and more than 30% of our teaching staff come from abroad. Most of our programmes are taught in English and European and international themes are deeply rooted in research and education. That creates an international atmosphere that's attractive to Dutch as well as international students and employees.

Challenging education

Maastricht University has used Problem-Based Learning (PBL) ever since it was founded and has been an expert in this field for over 35 years. PBL is more than just acquiring knowledge; it’s about exchanging knowledge in a challenging and effective way. Maastricht University makes the difference. With unique Europe-focused and international-oriented programmes. After all, UM is "Leading in Learning".

Multidisciplinary research

Researchers at UM work in multidisciplinary teams and in close cooperation with international institutes, business and industry. Our high-quality researchers have attracted international attention by taking the lead in several large European research projects. However, we’re not stopping there. Maastricht University’s research portfolio continues to attract national and international top researchers. But we also believe in young talent. That’s why UM integrates research into every level of our education.
