It is an assessed programme, respected by leading universities across the globe. We aim to develop students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically.
CP students at UWC Maastricht choose two or three academic subjects as listed below, combine these with an in-depth Career-related study and complete four core components.
Students take two or three subjects from the following academic areas:
Next to two or three of subjects as mentioned above, students pursue a Career-related study. We currently offer studies in Business and Sustainability, for which we partner with SUMAS Sustainability Management School in Switserland, and in Music, for which we team up with Conservatorium Maastricht. As well-established educational institutions, SUMAS and the Conservatorium endorse these IBCP tracks, setting up students to apply to schools around the world if they wish to further their studies. The Career-related study provides the opportunity to learn about theories and concepts through application and practice while developing broad-based skills in authentic and meaningful contexts, for instance via guest lectures and company visits.
In addition, students invest their time in four core components. These bridge the academic subjects and the career-related study and provide students with a combination of academic and practical skills.
The four interrelated components are:
As a result of the IBCP programme, graduates will find that universities and higher education institutions value the skills, experience and qualifications gained during the course. Universities recognise the academic rigour of the programme. At the same time, the international outlook and vocational teaching give students a portfolio of relevant skills which they can continue to grow. In keeping with the aims of the course, most graduates of the IBCP go on to continue in an area that they were exposed to (and inspired by) during their studies.
