WHO ARE WE?
The Student Project Team (SPT) works for Maastricht University to make the university more student-oriented. Maastricht University consults the SPT on many different projects. The SPT develops these projects with the aim of providing the university with the student perspective. Some of the projects that we are currently working on are: developing a more student friendly environment at the Tapijnkazerne, improving the Student Portal, making Maastricht University more sustainable and organising workshops for the Skills Academy.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We are looking for students with an opinion! The SPT works with a Student Panel of many students on almost all of its projects. This year we are looking for many new panel members who want to give their opinion to make changes at Maastricht University! Are you interested? Apply now!

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
As a panel member you are asked to attend panel sessions in which you can give your opinion on our projects. As a reward we offer free drinks with food at the panel sessions.  Additionally, being a panel member can give a huge boost to your CV: if you attend enough sessions, Maastricht University will reward you with an official certificate in which it acknowledges your efforts for the university. And to top it all off you will also get a VVV voucher! What isn’t there to like?
