Who will you nominate for the 2018 UM Student Award?

Maastricht University encourages its students to do more than just study. It also encourages them to be socially active. The UM Student Award was created with precisely this in mind. Do you know a UM student (or group of students) who has dedicated him or herself to pursuing a civil, social or cultural objective this year? Then recommend this student or group. Recommendations can be submitted to Monique Kussendrager by email until 11 May.

Faculty Office closed on Wednesday 9 May

Due to a team event the entire Faculty Office will be closed on Wednesday 9 May 2018. This means there will be no visiting/opening hours for the Front Office, Exam Administration Office, International Relations Office, and Board of Examiners and the student advisors. If you need to contact a support staff member in case of an extremely urgent matter please report to the reception at Grote Gracht 90-92.

Blogging @ FASoS

Are you an active blogger, on a Maastricht University webpage or on an external website? Please let the FASoS Marketing & Communication office know. We are exploring the options of a FASoS webpage with all FASoS related blogs assembled (either the blogs themselves or a link to an external website – if you are not allowed to repost the content).
