Learn in the heart of Europe

Maastricht lies at the southernmost tip of the Netherlands, in the very heart of Europe. In just a few hours’ time, you can be in Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris, or London. Maastricht is a relatively small city, but it has a lot to offer: a unique environment where cultural diversity, a friendly atmosphere, beautiful nature, an international ambience, and a central location meet. With its rich history, vibrant city centre, diverse population, easy access to the beautiful hills of South Limburg, and excellent connections to other cities and countries, Maastricht is an attractive destination for students and tourists.
