Maastricht 2016 students carnivalMeanwhile...Three of our third year BMed Sci Health & Human Sciences Students, Beth, Becky and Kate started their Erasmus health sciences placement this month at Maastricht University. They will complete their final year 3 semester in the Netherlands.


They took a break from their studies to enjoy Maastricht Carnival Week. Carnival has a long tradition in the southern Netherlands and Maastricht hosts one of the most colourful. Our three students joined in the celebrations (which last for a week) and shared their photos with us.

This week they will be returning to their academic work!
