Greetings, I am Charles de Groot, a third-year European studies with the ambition to make our university more open, sustainable and social. That is why I am running on negotiating for temporary housing assistance for incoming students for the two first periods. To combat inflation, the increase in the minimum wages for all students who are under 21 years old and therefore do not benefit from the 14 euro per hour wage. Having period products distributed in all the facilities of UM and planning for the creation of a student assembly

Don't just hope for change, vote for it!

Hi everyone!
My name is Ekaterina, I am doing my master's degree in Globalisation and Law. I want to make Maastricht University more accessible, affordable and 'understanding'. That is why I am suggesting the following steps: reducing of tuition fees for international students, promotion of psychological support, taking actions to support victims of gender-based violence. If that is also close to your heart, vote for me!
