Studying at the University of Twente means enterprising studying. Education at the University of Twente revolves around several core principles: a multidisciplinary, project-based approach, student-driven learning in which the needs of the student are the focus, and peer-based learning in which the learning environment is more natural and in which students learn from each other.

The University of Twente has converted these core principles into an education model, the Twente Education Model (TEM). Within TEM, during every 10-week period there is one central theme. The issues integrate technology and design, have social relevance and capitalize on the motivation of students.
