Governance

Both top students and average students to receive more attention

MAASTRICHT. More co-operation across faculty, department and discipline borders, and students being introduced to research from day one. These are the two most striking resolutions from Maastricht University’s 2017-2021 Strategic Programme, presented this week.
Towards empathic health care

Towards empathic health care

MAASTRICHT. More empathy in health care. That is the ultimate aim of medical student Matthijs Bosveld and health sciences student Sjim Romme, who received the Student Award 2016 last Monday. Their project ‘Mens Achter de Patiënt’ (MAP, the Person Behind the Patient) connects fellow-students to patients, who are given the opportunity to ...
Opening of the academic year: drum rolls and fanfare

Opening of the academic year: drum rolls and fanfare

How do you organise an opening of the academic year where the audience doesn’t fall asleep? When students proposed organising this year’s programme themselves, Maastricht University president Martin Paul, never a big fan of these sorts of festivities, jumped at the chance. That would liven things up, he figured. He was right....

“Europe! Practice what you preached!”

“Europe! Practice what you preached!”

Reconciliation and empathy – these were the driving forces behind the unification of Europe. And these are precisely the values that can pull Europe out of  its crisis today, said Professor Mathieu Segers in his speech during the official opening of the academic year.
Tribute to a ‘disobedient’ Maastricht native

Tribute to a ‘disobedient’ Maastricht native

Without him there would have been no university, no hospital, perhaps not even a city to gradually awaken from its provincial slumber. So if any Maastrichtenaar deserves a statue, it’s Sjeng Tans. He was a true daredevil, a Labour Party (PvdA) politician who fought for a university in Limburg. The statue was created by the artist Caius Spr...

Psychology tutorial groups reduced to twelve students

MAASTRICHT. The psychology faculty will reduce the size of its tutorial groups from fourteen students to twelve. Last year, the high number of new students meant the first-year groups were larger than usual. As a result the Problem-Based Learning system worked less well, according to tutors and lecturers surveyed before the summer. Doable but no...

Psychology students also want recorded lecturers

MAASTRICHT. Students in the Psychology faculty council want lectures to be recorded in the future. They have written a proposal on the matter that will be dealt with on Thursday afternoon in the faculty council meeting. “There is a need,” says Hanne van Kasteren, one of the authors of the proposal, which will be discussed in the faculty...

MAASTRICHT. PAS+ is slated to be the highlight of the university’s anniversary celebrations: a three-day Parcours of Art and Science in which UM, now 40, shows off all it has to offer. When: during the week of festivities on 8, 9 and 10 September. Where: between the Zwingelput, Kapoenstraat and Minderbroedersberg. For whom? Everyone. In Dutch...
“Maybe there’s just nothing wrong here”

“Maybe there’s just nothing wrong here”

Last week, Maastricht University held the 2016/17 elections for its Faculty and University Councils. But standing for election (or simply voting, for that matter) are not the only ways to get involved in student politics. Maastricht boasts a whole range of political activities, if you know where to look. But do students know where to look? And, mor...
