Eliana Cruz about Maastricht

Maastricht is the perfect location for students. It’s not very big but it’s still very international, with many students from all over the world. You get to know everybody in your field of study, and you are continually meeting new people. The city is located where three countries meet. We can easily go to concerts in Brussels, go shopping in Cologne, and meet other students in Aachen.
