You will receive individualized support from ASA’s advisors and staff throughout your program application process, while you are abroad, and when you return.

Before you depart we will work with you and the staff at your home institution to help you prepare for your time abroad. We are happy to speak with you to discuss ways you can maximize your experience in your host country. You will also receive a detailed pre-departure orientation guide which will help you know what to pack, what to expect when you arrive, and how to stay safe while abroad.

Once you arrive in Maastricht you will participate in our onsite orientation with the other ASA students in your group. ASA’s site director will introduce you to your host city and culture through orientation and multiple events during the program. Our intentionally small group sizes allow ASA’s students to get to know one another and are an aspect of our programs for which our alumni consistently express their appreciation. You will have opportunities to meet other students and lots of new people through your classes, social events and optional language partners.

ASA programs include excursions, volunteer opportunities, housing, meals, academic credits, transcripts, airport pick-up on arrival, medical insurance and more! Contact ASA or your advisor to learn about ASA’s Price Guarantee for all of our programs.

Maastricht University (UM), located in the south of the Netherlands, is internationally renowned for its innovative educational methods, dynamic research portfolio, and diverse international population. The university occupies landmark buildings spread throughout the city centre, and houses its medical and psychology faculties in the suburb of Randwijk, Maastricht alongside its teaching hospital.

It is worth noting that Maastricht University is the most international and fully bilingual (English & Dutch) university in the Netherlands, with the majority of academic programs taught entirely in English. UM has over 16,000 students and almost 2,000 academic staff. Around 49% of students and 39% of the teaching staff come from abroad. When studying in Maastricht, you encounter different languages and cultures every day, inside and outside the classroom.

Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics (SBE) is particularly prestigious. Home to about 4200 students and 500 staff members, 40% of whom come from abroad, the SBE is a part of the 1% of business schools worldwide that is triple-crown accredited (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA).

"My time spent abroad was absolutely amazing, and I give
a lot of credit to ASA for making it the best it could be."

- Kara McCrudden, ASA Alumni
