Maastricht. Time management is key!

Universiteit Maastricht
4.0/5
Overall
Maastricht can be an amazing place to study, if you manage your  time properly. It sounds less important than it is, but it is the single most importat skill you will need to learn in Maastricht (School of Business and Economics). From the first period onwards, your will be flooded with assignments and group work. If you do not manage it properly, your hobbies, your relationships and other interest might suffer alot. 

What if you manage your time properly? You will be rewarded with one of the most international student communities in the world.  And all of them have amazing stories to tell. Strong bonds will quickly form among the students and the community will develop an incredibe charm. Especially, when times get rought during the exam period. We call it the "Maastricht spirit". 

The courses themselves are well organised, the applied nature of most of the courses equip you with very decent presentation skills and all sorts of other soft skills. That is why most graduates from Maastricht easily enter the job market as consultants. Especially in German companies, graduates from Maastricht are very high in demand. 

Lastly, the value of interests, hobbies, education beyond the regular schedule can not be emphasised enough. Try out as many things as you can. Time management is key!

Personal recommendation
Courses were quite a lot of work for many students I talked to, so you should be prepared that you can't party all the time if you want to bring home decent grades. Or choose not too many courses!
