MAASTRICHT. The Maastricht Science Programme will award its first bachelor’s diplomas in three weeks’ time. Where will the students end up? To which master’s will they be admitted? “Some of them already know,” says dean Thomas Cleij. “But in September, we will know exactly where everyone has ended up. That will be an exciting moment. I hope a few will find their way into top programmes in the US or England and that some will choose to stay in Maastricht, for example for a medical or neurosciences master’s.”
The first batch of students started off in 2011. They chose something new: the Science Programme was actually the first liberal arts programme in the science world. Students choose their own set of subjects.
Of the 49 students who started three years ago, 24 are now about to receive a diploma. This means that 50 per cent has finished within the prescribed three years, so without any study delay. Cleij: “The Science Programme suits these times, in which study delay has become a dirty word.”
