On location in Maastricht

We have put together a programme in which you take part in short lessons on subjects taught within European Studies. This way you can see whether you find these topics interesting. You will also work in groups on a mini project. What you have learned in the lessons you immediately apply in a practical assignment. A couple of days before the experience day you will hear at what time and on which location you are expected.

Online experience day

A few days before the experience day you will receive an e-mail with more information about the programme and what to expect. You will receive a link for MS Teams. Via this link, you can participate in the online experience day.


  • What is European Studies about and how does the European Union work?
  • A lesson on either Intercultural Communication or Communication Strategy
  • A short briefing about the mini project you will work on.
  • Working together on a mini project: Drawing up a plan/campaign/presentation on a new initiative on a topic related to the EU.
  • Finally, we discuss the outcome of your project.
  • Q&A: we are happy to answer all your questions.

It is advised to follow the full programme. The parts are coordinated with each other. This way, you really get to experience what it’s like to study European Studies.
