I gained friendships that will last forever, and I have become much more confident in myself and much more independent.
Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.
The academics are hard, especially since Maastricht University uses a different style of teaching, but if you work hard then you will be fine.
On-site administration of your program
How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?
No dining halls, so the food is up to you. Cooking was really nice for me and I could also go out and eat whenever I wanted.
How integrated did you feel with the local culture?
How well were health issues addressed during the program?
(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)
Since Maastricht is a smaller town, it isn't as expensive as living in London or Paris or a large European city. The city is very affordable!
0 = No encouragement, 5 = frequent encouragement to use the language
Most everyone in the Netherlands speaks English as well as Dutch, so getting around wasn't an issue with English, but it was fun to use the Dutch that we had learned.
