Maastricht University Summer Program


In the Summer Program in European Studies, students choose from six courses in business or general education offered by the Center for European Studies (CES) at Maastricht University, one of the highest ranking universities in the Netherlands. All courses are in English and have European or inter-national flavor. CES professors are innovative professionals who bring their inspiring real-life experience into the classroom.


Late June to Early August
Application Deadline is February 15


1 WU credit = 2 CES credit. Students earn 6 Maastricht credits per course (equivalent of 3). Courses have a maximum of 15 students per section.

Minimum 3.0 GPA
Open to all majors in all schools.


Located on the border between the Netherlands and Belgium, Maastricht is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, which is reflected in the beautiful old architecture, from the medieval town ramparts, to the cobblestone paving of alleys and streets, seventeenth century facades and a Roman bridge. Maastricht has everything a student could wish for: a beautiful historic city centre, countless numbers of inviting sidewalk cafés, pubs and restaurants, sports facilities, shops etc. Film, music and theatre fans will find a wealth of opportunities in Maastricht. There are also plenty of possibilities to take long, leisurely walks or to go mountain biking in the low green hills surrounding Maastricht. 99% of the people speak English so it is easy to make yourself understood. Maastricht is a truly European city. Not only was the important "Treaty of Maastricht" signed here in 1992, the city itself is located at an inter-national crossroads and cities such as Brussels, Liège, Aachen, Cologne and Düsseldorf are within an hour's journey. Other major cities such as Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris and London are just a little further away.


All CES students stay at the International Student Guesthouse from Maastricht University. The Guesthouse is located within walking distance from downtown Maastricht behind the Court of Justice.
Please click here for more information about housing options.


CES staff plan social and cultural events to bring students, faculty, staff together. The orientation program includes a day trip to Amsterdam.

On-site support:
CES has a team of young-hearted, dedicated people ready to help, so you can focus on the things that really matter during your stay abroad, whether that is selecting the right courses, getting to an airport for your flight to Barcelona, finding a volunteer opportunity, meeting Dutch students, buying a bike or more.

Overseas Programs will enroll all WU-approved study abroad students in a basic accident and sickness plan through HTH Worldwide, a leading provider of international health insurance. This plan should be seen as supplemental to the student’s existing domestic health coverage, not as a replacement.  We do not recommend a reduction or suspension of existing domestic coverage in light of enrollment in HTH insurance.

Students pay all summer program related fees to the program sponsor directly. Visit this site for a detailed description of estimated costs and expenses for the term.
