Netherlands: CES Maastricht

The summer program at the Center for European Studies in Maastricht hosts American students for six weeks to take classes and experience life in the beautiful medieval city of Maastricht. The CES Maastricht program is Kenan-Flagler’s most established summer study abroad program, and it is a wonderful opportunity if you haven’t been to Europe or the Netherlands before. The helpful staff at CES will ensure your stay goes smoothly.

The city of Maastricht is a lovely medieval city of 120,000 people—a good size if you are not seeking a large urban experience but still want a vibrant atmosphere. The city is known for its picturesque setting, culture, education and festivals.

Located very near the Belgian and German borders, Maastricht is an excellent point from which to explore other parts of Europe. English is widely spoken in the Netherlands, but you will not have to travel far if you’d like to practice a foreign language.

CES has a program to introduce you to Maastricht and other students on the CES program. If you arrive in the required timeframe, the program will arrange an airport pick-up for you and take you on a day trip to Amsterdam.
