The admission procedure at Maastricht University varies per programme, but there are a few general things we can tell you about it.
What you need to keep in mind
Maastricht University selects students on performance, motivation and interests.
Depending on the studies you choose, you can opt for a matching procedure.
Matching is a way to determine whether you and your study programme are a good match.
Matching isn’t mandatory, it’s voluntary. So, it’s all up to you.
Matching can involve an interview, an online questionnaire or some other activity followed by a recommendation.
It depends on the procedure adopted by the programmes which offer matching.
One more thing: so, what if you don’t have a Dutch diploma? Scroll down.
First, you can check the list of diplomas equivalent to the Dutch VWO diploma to see if your degree qualifies you for admission to UM. If it doesn’t, you may be eligible for our Foundation Programme.
This one-year, full-time study programme consists of English-language training, content courses, academic skills training and cultural and social events.
