      Dear Timmy,
      Thanks for your message. Your total budget depends on your own preferences for accomodation, transport etc, so I cannot give you an amount. For the costs of a Summer School room in Maastricht, please check https://www.maastrichthousing.com/

  • From Mario on Contact

    Hello,
    I might be taking one or two courses at Maastricht this summer. They all look mighty interesting and practical indeed.

    A quick query…..I noticed that both the visual media and textual media analysis courses will be taught be Dr. Leonhardt van Efferink……however, they are both scheduled for the same week, that of the 13th-17th of August….. how’s that?

    Thanks in advance for the reply and effort…

      Thanks for your question, Mario. You are right, I teach both courses in the same week. There are 18 contact hours for both, and some classes of them overlap. Kind regards, Leonhardt

  • From Klaus Friedrich on Country Risk Analysis: Growth Potential, Economic Policy and External Finances of Emerging Markets [Summer School]

    Dear Leonhardt,
    I enrolled in the course
    is the program available yet?
    what are the hours approximately?
    I will have a meeting on one of the course days (17.07), which means I will only be able to participate for half the day, that day – will this be a problem?

    Best regards
    Klaus Friedrich, UvT

      Thanks for your message, Klaus. The program will normally be made available by the end of June, depending on the number of applicants. If you miss some hours of class, you may get an extra assignment to compensate for these missed hours. Does this help? Kind regards, Leonhardt

      • From Klaus Friedrich on Country Risk Analysis: Growth Potential, Economic Policy and External Finances of Emerging Markets [Summer School]

        Thank you very much for your reply.
        I’m fine with an extra assignment; other than that, if the missing of a half-day constitutes a problem, I would need to know as soon as possible, as my possibilities to re-schedule my meeting on the 17.07 are limited….

        thank you for your effort
        best

          Hi Klaus,
          The Summer School will be over before you know and the class discussions are usually very inspiring. So I would encourage you to spend as much time as possible with the group in class. However, if illness, exams or appointments prevent students from taking all classes, an extra assignment is required.
          Kind regards,
          Leonhardt

      Dear Cesar,
      Thanks for your question. Each course cost 600 euro. With ‘no funding’, I mean that the university does not offer financial support to Summer School students. Do you have more questions?
