What our students thought of their 2019 summer school experience.

“A high educational standard, inspiring professors, and an international classroom with professionals and students from all walks of life. A great addition to your summer!”

Max Mutsaers

Geopolitical Scenario Planning

“I would recommend MSS’ course on European Politics and Law to anyone seeking an in-depth understanding of European institutions and contemporary issues. Additionally, the summer school had a great balance of work and free time to explore the Benelux region.”

William Lunding

Law and Politics, Current Topics in the European Union

“A great team, very fast answers and support! You get to know cool people from different countries! Maastricht is also a beautiful city with good travel connections for weekend trips.”

Silvia Leitner

Positive Psychology

“The MSS provided me with an invaluable experience during my PhD research. Having the ability to converse with others undertaking similar research, while gaining new insight through the classes and lectures under Leonhardt’s tuition was definitely a high point for me.”
