CES Maastricht Reviews
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

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.
Home sweet Maastricht

I had an amazing summer in Maastricht!! Not only did I fulfill my travel dreams, but I learned so much and made great friends. My academic programme gave me the unique opportunity to learn about the EU and its people, while sitting in class alongside EU citizens as fellow students. I felt truly immersed in the material and learned so much more than I could have in an American University about the topics I studied.
The CES staff has been so kind, friendly, and welcoming. Any question of help I needed was easy to obtain! I have truly felt valued as a student here during my time in Maastricht.
Studying in Maastricht has made me feel totally immersed in my experience abroad, especially while studying the European Union amongst EU citizens. It has been an amazing experience to not only travel throughout Europe this summer, but be able to return to Maastricht as a home base. Great place not only to travel from, but to live.
Summer in Maastricht

You gain an international understanding of things that would only be touched on at home, even in such a short time. My professors were knowledgeable on the subjects and thoroughly enjoyed teaching-which has made learning so much fun.
Getting in contact with the CES staff was always easy and helpful when questions arose and my home university was unable to answer. They genuinely care about your well being while you're here, and it's a good feeling having people watch out for you while you're thousands miles from home.
The best thing about my study abroad experience was developing friendships that helped me become a better me in such a short amount of time. I'll forever be grateful for the people I met and the experience I was able to have in Maastricht.
