Teaching the modules will take place in the city of Maastricht a beautiful and historic location in the south of the Netherlands, on the Belgian border.
A truly International city!
The 120,000 inhabitants are used to living in a city with two universities and many foreign students. Students will find it easy to speak English with shop assistants, waiters, medical staff or anyone else. The city’s geographical location, near Germany and Belgium (with which the city shares its borders) has only added to the international appeal of the city’s population. As the oldest city of the Netherlands, Maastricht is a popular destination not only for its historical inner city, which dates back to the Roman era, but also for its vibrant night life, its shopping district, and its international student culture.

Maastricht, built on the bank of the river Maas, offers everything from rich culture, to challenging nature. The city’s theatres, museums, sports centres, (University) libraries, restaurants and a highly developed continental café culture seem to be custom made to cater to the student population.
