My CES experience

Study abroad has been amazing so far. I've been able to travel, take challenging courses, and also join volunteer projects in my free time.

This block, I took a course on EU law and politics and learned about the history of the EU; additionally, I took a course of public policy evaluation. I enjoyed both classes, because I was able to engage with Dutch and German students through my tutorial by doing group projects and presentations, which enabled me to learn about Europe on a whole new level.

The CES staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. My advisor has continued to help me find classes I am interested in, and other staff members have helped give me advice on things to do, places to visit, and more.

Maastricht spring 2018

My academic experience has taught me how to engage in hands-on, discussion-based learning rather than solely lecture-based coursework. Through program courses, you are able to delve deeper into your theme while being surrounded by fellow CES students. The CES staff helps organize the study abroad experience by providing resources to help adjust to life in Maastricht as well as social and academic support. Through simple reminders and guidance, they provide a support system similar to that I have found at my home university. Studying abroad in Maastricht taught me a lot about myself, that I can adapt to different situations well and that I am more independent than I give myself credit for. Through balancing study abroad life i.e. travel, with academics and social aspects, I have grown and become more worldly.

Maastricht spring 2018

The number of exchange students in Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience is a small and intimate group, which makes it feel like all your academic concerns are addressed. The courses are very different from traditional lectures because they require self-initiative and are completely discussion based. The CES staff have been incredibly helpful from finding me a local chiropractor, to giving travel suggestions, academic guidance, and tips on stress relief. You realize how lucky CES students are to have the resources, cultural trips, guidance, and community they provide— especially when you compare yourself to other exchange students. Studying abroad has made me more globally mindful, open to uncertainty, and conscious of how fortunate I am to have experienced like these. I’ve gained a huge boost in independence and have learned to make the most of every moment and adventure!

Cultural enriching experience

My academic program allows your mind to open up and discuss wordily topics and learn more about the world in whole. The professors are helpful and wonderful and want you to grow your knowledge also PBL is such fun and makes it easy to discuss.

My academic program has allowed me to understand the world much more while discussing controversial topics. It has led me to understand that most of the world has the same issues they are trying to face but we need people to step up and take initiative to help solve these issues.

The CES staff is a fun and engaging staff that want to make your time here at Maastricht the best time possible. They are like the protectors of you and help you to succeed here.

Study abroad is an eye-opening experience that allows you to understand that the world is such a small place with people who have good hearts. Studying abroad has allowed me to find beauty in everyday things and allow myself to take one day at a time and enjoy every second of it because your time here is so short.

So far...

My academic scene is unique from that at home; it consists of a more open and conversational environment being led by fellow classmates. Discussion is part of the learning process and to be involved you must have your work done prior.

The CES staff is involved in my academics and my life here in Maastricht, keeping me on top of what needs to get done while also making each step of the way as easy as possible. I feel comfortable with all staff and can rely on them for nearly anything.

Thus far, my travel abroad experience has been filled with new friendships, open environment, and cultural experiences all across Europe. Each day brings on new opportunities to grow independence, and improve on self-knowledge as well as keeping myself accountable for maintaining relationships and my own academic learning.
