Student life

Attending university can often be a great challenge, as can moving to another country. Whether it’s just across the border, the other side of the continent, or the other side of the world, moving to the Netherlands poses both obstacles and opportunities, no matter where you come from. So your choice should better be good.

Why should you choose Maastricht?

  • Small city with 120,000 inhabitants that is lively, cosmopolitan and safe
  • Students make up about 20% of the population, warranting a real student culture

  • The sun shines more often than in the other parts of the country

Sorting things out
After filling out all the forms, gathering all the necessary documents and sending off your application, you start playing the waiting game. Once you’ve received the e-mail with your acceptance, you have to start preparing the rest of your big move. Where are you going to live? What are you going to pack? How are you going to get there? What will it be like? Will you make friends easily?
