Course summary The six-week Summer Programme in European Studies (SES) offers you a great European experience while earning credits towards your major.
Course description Maastricht, birthplace of the European Union and situated on the border of the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, is a picture perfect European town, with layers of history waiting to be discovered in its medieval city centre. Students fall in love with Maastricht's vibrant local culture and enjoy the many art and music festivals that take place throughout the summer. Centrally located in the heart of Europe, the Summer Programme in European Studies is an ideal way for students to experience Europe inside and outside the classroom. Travel both with CES and on your own! Experiencing Europe is a big part of the programme. During your introduction we will travel to Amsterdam, the beautiful and cosmopolitan capital of the Netherlands. With classes four days a week, there are plenty of three-day weekends to explore Europe on your own. The SES programme even offers the opportunity to go on a study trip with a distinct European theme. Take a short train ride to Brussels, Amsterdam, London or Paris. Catch a low-cost flight from one of seven airports around Maastricht to just about any place in Europe, including Berlin, Prague, Rome or Barcelona!
