    A friend says there are no dance clubs/night clubs and stuff like what we have in the US/UK. Just plain drinking bars.
    Is that true? Oh and by the way could you tell me the living costs per month? My friend is like 600 EUROS is Enough. and i dont even drink/smoke at all so cut thhose costs

    Hello everyone!!!
    I would like to consult about which programme to choose for future master in finance and career in finance field.
    I have several options but I don't know which is better, so please help me.


    FIRST OPTION
    International Business programme
    "Years 1 and 2 are all about what makes the business world go round: you take courses such as Finance and Accounting, Management of Operations and Product Development." After two years, for the remaining one, I can choose major in finance.
    Here's the course description
    http://www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/w...scriptions.htm


    SECOND OPTION
    Economics And Business Economics programme
    This programme has three specialisations: Economics and Management of Information Course description, International Business Economics(major in finance can be chosen) Course description, Economics(major can't be chosen) Course description


    Information in this Brochure mentions about a career as financial analyst only in the description of the last programme I mentioned(Economics And Business Economics programme with specialization in Economics). So I am confused.


    Thank you very much for your help.

    Yeah, the drinking culture is pretty different here as there are lots of bars rather than clubs (there are a couple). But as we are students anyway we tend to go to house parties etc. Also because there are exams every 4-8 weeks (depending on the modules/courses you are taking) most students really have to find a balance pretty quickly. But there is always something going on, whether it's at a bar, someone's house or in an association.
    In terms of living costs I actually spend around €300 per month (I don't party every night either) but I think anywhere between €250-450 per month is an accurate guess. That's not incl. rent or insurances though.

    Hello! I'm a 17 year old Iraqi-American living in Syria. I have applied for the foundation program at Maastricht and I think I'm on the verge of being accepted. I've only done up to 11th grade which is why I'll have to do the foundation year and I will be studying Business & Economics. After reading lots of threads upon other things,I'll have to admit..I'm quite scared now and I'm reluctant on whether I should go or not. People say it's quite difficult and that 3/4 of the students drop out first year. Now,I'm willing to work as hard as I can. I'm willing to put as much effort as I can..will I succeed? How many hours a day am I looking at studying? Another thing that's ticking at me are the expenses. I hear Maastricht is really expensive! How would a guy like me do on say 600 euros a month? (Not including rent) If I'm a guy that would want to go out every now and then, maybe a party a week?


    Guys,I'm really scared. I don't know why. Something's telling me I'll regret my decision even though I really want to go.


    Advice from current or prospective students will be highly appreciated!

    I am a current student in my 1st year of Business and Economics. Honestly, it is A LOT OF WORK and you must be very well prepared for every tutorial you go to. The exams are all multiple choice as well and they can be quite difficult to score well in. An awful lot of my friends are dropping out at the end of this year and I am too also thinking about dropping out as the workload is just crazy. Think long and hard about your decision before you go. I definitely regret mine.

    Well, I found it on the web page. However, you should try e-mailing the Student Service, it will be a lot easier to receive an answer. But in my opinion, the best is to contact them via Skype.

    Hello everyone, I have several questions about Maastricht European Law faculty.
    So I've got accepted to the Maastricht University into European Law faculty. The fact is that there is only one reason, because of which I was accepted - it is the matching questionnaire. That's why I would like to ask you: 1.
    do you know anything about how this recruitment system works and for example do people who definitely are not good enough for this faculty - but their questionnaire seems ok - are being accepted.
    2. Secondly what do you think about studying European Law itself 3. and European Law as in the Maastricht University.
    4. I am also interested what perspectives I am going to have after graduating - especially will I get any title or be able to write some kind of exam which will grant me the right to work as a regular Lawyer.

    In general, everyone with an education equivalent to the Dutch VWO is admitted to any course. Some exceptions are university colleges and quotum studies. So, normally three passes at A-level will get you into any course.
    Matching is new this year. As far as I know it has no impact whether or not you are accepted. It is intended for those that are accepted to find out if the course really is for them.

    Hello Duncan,
    I have just received my IB diploma and will be off to Maastricht in a week to start my first year studying International Business there.
    I keep hearing from people, such as yourself, that it is very hard to pass the first year in Maastricht and am slightly intimidated by this. I simply wanted to know about how many hours do good/strong students study per day there? How much time will I have for sports, chores, and 'fun' each day? Finally, would you say that the International Business course there is very difficult? I am fine with working hard, I am just worried that I will struggle with time/energy management.
    PS
    Thanks for the great info!

    Hello everyone! Im planning on applying to Maastricht University's International Business master's program, with special focus on ''Organisational Change and Consultancy''.

    There is some questions I can't seem to find answers to from the university's web page, though.

    1. I managed to get a very nice score of 750 on my GMAT. On the school's web page it says that ''Applicants with a total score of 650 or higher and an analytical writing score of 4.0 or higher will be admitted to the programme according to the availability of places. ''. Does this mean that I am automatically accepted into the program (of course I would still have to have motivation letters etc.)?

    2. This part confuses me a lot. I do NOT know my AWA score. On the website it clearly says that ''...AND an analytical writing score of 4.0 OR HIGHER will be admitted to the programme according to the availability of places. '' And at the same time it says that anyone UNDER the score or 4.0 is automatically DISQUALIFIED. This can't be right, can it? Anything at or over 4.0 and you are in, and anything under, you are out. Sounds....well...crazy.

    3. On the schools web site it says that the deadline for the February intake is 1st of December. BUT how EARLY can I apply? Can I already put my application into the system? When do they start evaluating applications?

    Thank you so much!,

    Daniel
