EDLAB and Students


What is a Student-Meet?

Do you care about education? Do you enjoy studying at Maastricht University? Are you interested in innovating the education at UM? Then join EDLAB’s Student-Meets and leave your mark at Maastricht University.

A Student-Meet is an informal and a low-key gathering open for all students of UM faculties. EDLAB is interested in bringing students from all different academic years together to share experiences and chat about education at UM. EDLAB organizes five Student-Meets per academic year. Every event focuses on a different theme, all with the aim of innovating education. There are no-strings attached when visiting a Student-Meet (you are thus very welcome, yet not obliged, to visit all five meetings and there is no mandatory preparation before the event).

Free food will be provided!


Volume 1: Effective learning:

During this first Student-Meet, we will chat about effective learning. Have you found a great study strategy and would you like to share that? Or are you looking for inspiration on how to study more effectively? This Student-Meet is the place for that.

Furthermore, we will share experiences and thoughts on how to get most out of your PBL sessions and how to attain the important balance between concentration and relaxation. An expert on the topic will be present to share ideas and advice from a research perspective.

EDLAB’s first Student-Meet welcomes you and your questions, ideas and experiences concerning effective learning on November 13. ​

EDLAB student board

At EDLAB, we focus on continuously improving and innovating education at Maastricht University. In doing this, we take into account the needs, desires and ambitions of students and teaching staff of Maastricht University.

By creating a student advisory board, we want to gain better insight in the student perspective on education innovation at UM. We want to hear and understand what UM students feel and think about studying and education at Maastricht University. Participating in this board allows students to reflect on education innovation of our unique PBL system.

The student board is composed of students from all six UM faculties and meets every 8 weeks at EDLAB.
