Modules for Exchange students
Good evening

Programme offer form exchange students 2022-2023

This form lists all the courses and programmes that exchange students can enroll in at Maastricht University Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences. Once you have enrolled yourself we will get back to you as soon as possible with more detailed information about how the education will take place.

All our courses are taught in English. Therefore, please be aware that proficiency in English is required (at least B2 level).

Most Bachelor courses that we offer are part of a programme; only in some occasions, we offer separate courses. Courses in a programme should be followed in chronological order, meaning that you start with the first course and then work your way down. This rule does apply for the courses of the Biology and Health Track, EPH and Master courses.

You also can combine courses from several programmes. You can pick whatever separate course you are interested in; as long as you make sure, there is no overlap with regard to the period in which these courses are taught.

Deadline for application:

  • Autumn semester: 20-06-2022
  • Spring semester: 21-11-2022
  • Please note: the deadlines for our Medical Bachelor and Master programmes are mentioned above the programmes

Master Research electives (on request)

For research electives the aim is to have the student himself applying the empirical cycle of research. Therfore, the most successful approach is to involve the students in ongoing research at our institution, and to attach the student to one of our staff members who is willing to coach a student performing a tiny element of his research project under close supervision.

General characteristics
The primary aim of a research elective is to become acquainted with and to take part in research relevant to medicine. It is therefore important that during the research elective the students are involved in the different stages of research, including:
  • Formulating a research question.
  • Designing appropriate research methods.
  • Processing and analysing research data; and
  • Critically evaluating these data in the light of the pertinent international literature.

The requests for research electives take place on an individual basis
  • Deadline for application is 5 months prior to the start of the programme.
  • Departments decide wheter a student is accepted or not, however all requests for an elective have to go through the International Relations Office. There are no fixed places available.
  • Minimum period is 8 weeks.

I would like to participate in the following research elective(s). (mention the subject):
Period: from to 
1st choice
