UM placed seventh in the 2016 QS ranking for universities established fewer than 50 years ago, making it the highest ranked of all European universities. In other rankings, too, UM consistently achieves scores from good to very good: in 2017 a sixth position in the Times Higher Education ranking for young universities. Maastricht lies at the southernmost tip of the Netherlands, in the very heart of Europe. In just a few hours’ time you can be in Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris or London, and several airports are within an hour’s drive. From cinemas, theatres and hundreds of cafes, bars and restaurants to a brand new sports centre and state-of-the-art study facilities under construction at the Tapijn site – Maastricht is a living city with a historic centre. And every academic year kicks off with an unforgettable Inkom week.
