Maastricht University’s Foundation Programme


Don’t have the right diploma to study at Maastricht University?

The Foundation Programme may be just what you are looking for.

The Foundation Programme will provide you with intensive training in academic skills, courses relevant to your chosen bachelor’s programme, and English language skills (depending on your level).


The FP also offers support outside of the classroom and organizes events that will help you make new friends and adjust to life in the Netherlands, all while preparing you for the study of your choice.


More about the programme in this video.

And what do students think? We asked some of our former students how they have experienced the Foundation Programme.



If you are not eligible for admission to UM you may still be eligible for the Foundation Programme.


Successfully finishing the Foundation Programme makes you eligible for your chosen bachelor’s programme.
