Did you know that from 1 August 2020 it will be forbidden to smoke in and around the buildings of Zuyd University of Applied Sciences? As of August 1st 2020 an amendment has been included in the Tobacco Act that smoking is no longer allowed inside and outside all educational institutions in the Netherlands. This measure applies to primary schools, secondary schools, institutes of higher professional education (MBO- and HBO) and universities.
Why a ban on smoking?
As many young people smoke their first cigarette at school, the government wants to reduce these numbers. Young people are sensitive to the exemplary behavior of people around them. A smoke-free schoolyard sets a norm that smoking is not normal.
Questions about quitting smoking? If so, please contact the Prevention Centre:
GGD Zuid Limburg will be setting up a temporary "test street" in Maastricht in the coming days, exclusively for students. The test street will be located in car park P5 at the Paul-Henri Spaaklaan behind MECC Maastricht, close to Maastricht University and will be in use on Monday afternoon (August 17th, 2020).
Zuyd Hogeschool, Maastricht University and the Jan van Eyck Academie joined forces to create the possibility to get a PhD in the Arts. MERIAN (the Maastricht Experimental Research In and through the Arts Network) will be launched in the upcoming academic year and the PhD students focus their artistic research on the art and science of the collaborating academia in the area and the relevance for the Euregion.
To obtain a doctoral degree, PhD candidates, must conduct an artistic research, write a thesis and defend it before a committee. They must combine art and science. The research mainly focuses on current urgent matters and social issues that are relevant to the location of the part-taking educational institutes in the Euregion.
Doctoral students from all art and scientific disciplines can conduct PhD research in MEDIAN style in "Maastricht style". This "Maastricht style" is problem-based, methodologically innovative and focuses on interdisciplinary themes that consists of using both art and science.
Throwback to this beautiful performance for the elderly at the Kommelkwartier. Pierre Vyncke and Peter Willems played a couple of jazzy tunes for a big group of older people in the neighborhood so that they can still enjoy live performances in a safe way!
Distance can't stop our students from making music together online.

Beautiful performance by our Jazz students Alessa Knur and Lukas Meyer for residents at Kommelkwartier Maastricht. Together with buurtnetwerk Kommelkwartier and our students we are bringing live music to those who can’t go outside these days.
