University College Maastricht offers a bachelor's programme entirely taught in English. It is meant for students with a broad academic interest, who do not want to limit themselves to a programme focused on a single academic discipline. UCM offers over 150 courses in almost all academic disciplines. Each semester you construct your own programme from the courses offered. At the end of the first year you opt for one of the three concentrations: Social Sciences, Humanities or Sciences. Of course, you do not choose courses randomly. Together with your academic advisor, you discuss your ambitions for the future and choose courses that fit your plans. Next to courses in academic disciplines, you also enroll in an extensive skills training programme. Here you learn how to set up and conduct scientific research; you work on your debating skills; and you practice how to present ideas in a clear and persuasive way. Your writing skills receive special attention. The College also offers you the opportunity to learn another foreign language. Furthermore you can study a semester abroad at one of our partner universities all over the world. UCM is a three-year programme taught entirely in Engl
