“Maastricht Summer School was such an absolutely incredible experience in all aspects. The team was so warm and welcoming. The classroom was diverse and dynamic with students from around the world. Dr Hodges truly had an amazing ability to bring theoretical concepts to life and spark a passion in us all. Maastricht is also such a beautiful city to explore. I am so grateful for this opportunity and would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested.”
