Maastricht University offers talented and motivated third-year Bachelor students the opportunity to conduct their own research within a Research-Based Learning (MaRBLe) project. Students can earn 12 credits by doing a MaRBLe project and also write an empirical Bachelor's Thesis on their research project. This MaRBLe project has to be combined with two regular elective courses (12 EC).

During a research project you are introduced to theoretical aspects of conducting research within your field or discipline and you conduct your own research. The skills you develop within this project are useful for either a career in scientific research or research positions in business.


In the first selection round, the second year Bachelor students with the best results (top 20%) will be invited to participate.

Due to (administrative) reasons, there might be situations where you inadvertently did not receive an invitation, for instance:
- You have submitted a catch-up assignment that has not been assesed.
- You have an exemption for one or more courses

If this is the case, you can send a correction request to marble-fpnmaastrichtuniversity.nl.

The second round is open to all other second year Bachelor students. A motivation letter and a recommendation letter from your research practicum supervisor are needed to take part in this round.
