Summer School on Affective Neuroscience
The Summer School on Affective Neuroscience offers the Summer Courses of the Master in Affective Neuroscience as stand-alone courses. The courses are well suited for clinicians and other professionals who want to update their expertise on affective pathology.
All students of the Summer School will take the entire programme of the Summer Course mixed in with the Master students, to ensure an optimal learning experience.
The topic of the Summer Course alternates each year between Anxiety and Mood. The teaching format is a challenging combination of lectures and workshops. Every day has a different theme that lies within the field of Mood or Anxiety. A distinctive feature of the courses is their informal atmosphere; the students and professors mix easily, creating many opportunities to discuss your ideas with prominent scientists.

Problem Based Learning
Problem Based Learning is a challenging teaching format that combines lectures and workshops. The central philosophy is that students actively take responsibility over their own education. The lectures at the Summer Courses serve as an introduction to the theme of the day, after which the students split up into small groups to work on an assignment in the PBL sessions. During these sessions everyone is expected to bring their knowledge to the table, and to determine as a group what you still need to learn. The teachers are present to guide this workshop process rather than to lecture, allowing the students to learn from each other.
European Certificate in Affective Neuroscience
For each of the courses that was completed successfully the participants will receive a certificate of attendance. Upon completion of both Summer Courses of the Summer School participants will receive the European Certificate in Affective Neuroscience from the Maastricht University.
Both Summer Courses have been accredited by the European Accreditation Committee in CNS (EACIC) for continuous medical education (CME) credits.
