‣ Language Certificate

Since the official language at our School is English and all courses are taught in English, exchange students are required to have an advanced level of the English language (comparable to the level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference) to be able to successfully complete their courses at our School (note that we do not require any proof of an ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEST SCORE).

‣ Notes

Please note that faculty (SBE) will only accept students if they follow their major in Economics or Business. Bachelor students need to have completed at least two semesters of relevant study before they start their exchange programme. SU students wanting to take master courses have to submit their official Bachelor degree. Students with non related BA degrees ( eg. technolgy , history etc) do not qualified for master courses. The new MSc in Economics has brought along some important changes (compared to the old programme), which might affect your students’ exchange semester at our School: 1-The six current specializations will be replaced by three new specializations: Education and Labour Economics, Global challenges and macroeconomic policy and Market regulation and design.2- The workload of all economics courses (skills trainings not included) changed from 6.5 ECTS to 5 ECTS (except for some elective courses which are open for other MSc programmes as well) 3- All courses have been replaced by new courses with a new course title. For some course, the content remains similar, for others the content changed significantly. More detailed information about the course content is available through our online course database: http://code.unimaas.nl/Code/Selection?intCalendarID=25&intBAMA=3&intFacultyID=26 4-Some courses will not be replaced in the new programme, meaning that there will be no suitable alternative available. 5- Student housing in the Netherlands is not arranged by the university. Finding a room is your own responsibility and can be challenging sometimes. 6- Exchange students wishing to take courses from our MSc in Economics programme in the upcoming spring 2019 semester, have the following options to obtain as many ECTS credits as possible : · Period 4: a maximum of 3 economics courses (15 ECTS credits) or a combination of 1 Economics course (5 ECTS credits) with 1 course from one of the other MSc programmes (6.5 ECTS credits) for a total of 11.5 ECTS credits. ·Period 5: a maximum of 3 economics courses (15 ECTS credits) or a combination of 1 Economics course (5 ECTS credits) with 1 course from one of the other MSc programmes (6.5 ECTS credits) for a total of 11.5 ECTS credits. ·Period 6: a skills training at BSc level (4 ECTS credits) only, no MSc level skills training are available during this period.
