Maastricht University is renowned for its unique, innovative, problem-based learning system, which is characterized by a small-scale and student-oriented approach. Research at UM is characterized by a multidisciplinary and thematic approach, and is concentrated in research institutes and schools. Maastricht University has around 18,000 students and 4,300 employees. Reflecting the university's strong international profile, a fair amount of both students and staff are from abroad. The university hosts 6 faculties: Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, Faculty of Law, School of Business and Economics, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience.
FASoS offers a place where scholars with different disciplinary backgrounds - historians, political scientists, literary and arts scholars, sociologists, anthropologists, philosophers and others - are brought together in joint research. This interdisciplinary approach is predominant in our teaching as well; all of our programmes acquaint students with different disciplines and perspectives. At FASoS, we are also focused on creating an international environment, a place where our differences become our strengths. Every day, our students and staff are challenged with differing viewpoints and experiences as they interact peers from all over the world. All of the faculty’s programmes are taught entirely in English and with 79% of our students and 42% of our staff coming from abroad, FASoS is Maastricht University’s most international faculty. All of FASoS’ programmes are taught using Problem-Based Learning (PBL). Students work in small tutorial groups, and seek solutions to ‘problems’ taken from real-world situations. The yearly budget of the faculty is around 22 million euro. FASoS currently consists of about 1600 students and about 200 academic and support staff who work daily on education and research.
