CES Maastricht Reviews
Submitted by Moriah Mabry - University of Denver | November 29, 2017
During my academic program, I learned how to think, study, and interact in new ways with fellow students through discussion, research, and debate. The CES staff are helpful, and accommodating. They make the program fun and engaging. My experience abroad has been an eye-opening global adventure. Due to the though-provoking courses and travel, I truly have grown as a person and now I know much more about myself and my priorities because of this experience.

Studying abroad at the School of Business and Economics allows me experience of a different teaching system and structure. Though it seemed daunting at first, it definitely opened up my mind to new ways of learning. The CES team is very welcoming, outgoing, and most importantly, helpful. Beyond just academic needs, they also go the extra mile to connect with me on a personal level to give me the best study abroad experience. Having the opportunity to be adventurous in between classes and getting an insight into various different cultures around Europe is definitely the highlight of my study abroad experience.
Amazing experience in the Netherlands
Submitted by Erin Zamora - University of Denver | November 29, 2017
The Politics, Law, and International Relations courses that I took at CES allowed me the opportunity to be instructed by professors that are experienced in their field, passionate about stimulating debate, and encouraging student participation. Additionally, I was acquainted with the European perspective on the topics that I am passionate about such as human rights, and international law.
The CES staff were incredibly helpful and kind during my time in Maastricht. I felt like they were a helping hand if I needed one, but at the same time allowed me the independence to discover Maastricht on my own.
My study abroad experience was much more enriching, and challenging than I originally set my expectations for going in. Not only was I able to travel as much as I wanted, I was surrounded by a community, both academically and personally, that cared about my success and development as a person.
Amazing summer in Maastricht
Submitted by Oti - Penn State University | August 08, 2017
Coming to Maastricht, I had no idea what to expect. I travel a lot with my family but I had never been to the Netherlands. Maastricht is a beautiful city that, in my opinion, appeals to everyone. It has a nice city vibe but is also not as intense as larger cities.
When we first got here, the CES staff was so helpful, we had tours of the city and of places we may need to go to get things that we needed. They even help you with navigating the transportation system in case you wanted to explore other European cities. I took a leadership and management class, and our academic programme was very enlightening and engaging. We discuss with our professor and our peers about various management and leadership topics in class that genuinely changed my view of leadership for the better. My experience was truly an amazing one!
Summer near the Maas
Submitted by Brittney Johsnon - UC Santa Barbara | August 08, 2017
This academic program was a life changing experience because it has opened new friends who challenged he way i thought about many political topics. it was also wonderful because it allowed me to have time and support to find the pathway i wanted to take inline, and now i am applying to law school in fall.
CES staff was incredible because they were always willing to help, whether that be answering many of my Facebook messages to help me get around!
I would not rate this experience for the world; it has not only changed my outlook on issues I care most about but it has allowed me to come into contact with people, who are now lifelong friends, that challenge me to think greater and be better. Traveling on the weekends opened up my world as well because immersing myself into the cultures of other countries has allowed me to look back at my country and want to make it a greater place.
