Maastricht, The Netherlands – Summer Course Offerings at Maastricht University

Students will take 2 courses through this program.  However, all students MUST get a total of 4 courses approved by their home institution (2 from each Block), in case of changes in course availability or schedule conflicts. That way, if either of your top-choice courses is full or cancelled, you’ll have a back-up course that you know your school will accept for credit. When you pre-register for courses (this happens after you’re accepted), you will have to list a total of 4 possible courses on your pre-registration form (2 selections from each Block), in order of preference. All courses are worth 6 ECTS (3 U.S. semester credits) each. ECTS = European Credit Transfer System.

The Summer session at Maastricht University is split in half, at the three week mark. The first three weeks is referred to as “Block I”, while the final three weeks is referred to as “Block II”. You will take one course per block, though you must provide both a top choice course AND an alternate course for each Block (a total of 4 selections) during pre-registration.  Available courses for both Block I and Block II are listed below. Each course you take comes with a one day field trip related to that course.
