Maastricht University (UM) is the most international university in the Netherlands.
More than 40% of the students and almost 30% of the teaching staff come from abroad.
The university has more than 13,000 students and offers a wide choice of academic programmes.
UM uses Problem-Based Learning (PBL), which was originally developed in Maastricht. PBL is billed as more than just acquiring knowledge and is about exchanging knowledge in a challenging and effective way thereby increasing students’ knowledge and, in particular, their ability to deal with new problems, rules, and laws.
Most programmes are taught in English.
