Go international with your studies

Combine study and travel, and graduate with a second masters degree from our overseas partner university in addition to your QUT masters degree.

If you're starting our Master of Business (some majors), this is a great way to broaden your choice of discipline areas and career possibilities while you gain an international perspective.

How it works

  • Studies at both universities are credited towards each masters degree, so you'll complete in less time than it would take to do two individual degrees.
  • You'll receive a personalised study program for both universities, based on your previous studies.
  • Programs take either 1.5 or 2 years (full-time), depending on your previous studies and choice of major.
  • Maastricht University teach their courses in English.
'The experience was extremely beneficial from an academic perspective, but even more so from a personal one.'
