Maastricht, The Netherlands – Summer Course Offerings at Maastricht University
All students MUST get a total of 4 classes approved by their academic advisor, in case of changes in course availability or schedule conflicts. That way, if either of your top-choice classes is full or cancelled, you’ll already have a back-up class that you know your school will accept for credit. When you pre-register for classes (this happens after you’re accepted), you will have to list a total of 4 possible classes on your registration form, in order of preference. Classes are worth 45 contact hours (3 semester credits) unless otherwise noted.
The Maastricht Summer Program is split in half, at the three week mark. The first three weeks is referred to as “Session I”, while the final three weeks is referred to as “Session II”. You will enroll in one course per session, also providing an alternate choice during enrollment. The listings for each session are included below.
