A non-regular student is a student who is registered as a participant in the education in one of the education programmes of the UT but is not enrolled as a student or external student based on art. 7.32 paragraph 1 of the Act. This person either participates in some courses or is enrolled for a non-financed education programme or participates in a programme at ITC (see chapter 5);

Art. 15a. Different forms of non-regular students at the UT:

1.

Registration as a subsidiary student (including Kies-op-maat (KOM) students):

a.

The person who is enrolled at another Dutch institution for higher education and wants to take part in one or more educational activities at the UT, has to make a request at the CSA.

b.

The request must include:

i.

A confirmation of the study programme that no complaints against an enrolment as a subsidiary student exist;

ii.

A valid identification card;

iii.

A proof of paid tuition fee (of the study year concerned) of the institution with the first enrolment.

Registration as a subsidiary student at the UT can be refused due to capacity reasons or inadequate prior knowledge of the student. Students can make a request to be registered as subsidiary student throughout the year, except for students following a pre-university minor (in Dutch: doorstroomminor). They need to apply through www.kiesopmaat.nl and should meet the deadlines as mentioned on the website. If the education programme confirms the request, students will be registered from the 1st of the month. Students paying the statutory tuition fee as well as students paying the institutional can be registered as a subsidiary student.

2.

Exchange students:
These students are enrolled at a foreign institution as a student and either follow some courses at the UT or do an internship or a graduation project. They pay no tuition or course fee at the UT.

3.

Course participants:

(including students who are enrolled for the post-initial education programmes Master of Environmental and Energy Management and Master Risk Management) are persons without an enrolment at another Dutch institution for higher education and want to follow courses or the post-initial education programme at the UT. They contact the concerning education programme, who determines the amount of course and tuition fee.

4.

ITC-students:

Students who participate in an education programme or course at the faculty ICT register at ITC and pay the course or tuition fee there: Enrolment Regulation ITC in chapter 5.

All exchange students, course participants and ITC students will be registered as non-regular students, if admissible. These non-regular students have access to the education and educational facilities of the UT.

A registration as a subsidiary student can never be completed with a diploma at the UT. Registrations referred to in point 1 and 2, will never result in a UT diploma. Registrations referred to in point 3 and 4, can be finished with a diploma of an accredited but not financed education programme, granting the achieved degree. If students want to complete the degree of an accredited and financed education programme of the UT, a registration as a student according art. 7.32 paragraph 1 of the Act is necessary. For this, the student has to meet the admission requirements and take the starting moments of the education programmes into consideration.

Art. 15b End date non-regular enrolment

The registration ends, conform article 11, on August, 31th automatically.

Art. 16. Proof of enrolment and student card non-regular students

1. Only for Exchange Students: The proof of enrolment as issued by the Executive Board shall indicate the surname and first initials of the student, the date of birth, the student number, the period of enrolment, the programme and the type of enrolment. It will be valid for the entire academic year.

2. The student card as issued by the Executive Board shall indicate the surname and first initials of the student, a passport photo, the student number, the programme, the type of enrolment and the library code. It will be valid for the entire academic year.

3. Under certain circumstances a student may request a duplicate of his/her student ID card. The student must then pay a fee of €10.00.

Article 17. Procedure for termination of registration and prove of paid tuition fee refund not regular students

Not regular students can monthly de-enrol during study year. A proof of paid tuition fee can be returned on demand.

CHAPTER 5: ITC Enrolment Regulation Academic Year 2015

All ITC students will be registered as student when admitted to the UT. These students will have access to the education and educational facilities of the UT..

A registration can lead to a UT-diploma of an accredited but not financed education programme, granting the achieved degree.

Article 20. Entry into force and citation

1.

This regulation shall enter into force on the 1st of September 2015 and is valid for the

2015-2016 academic year.

2.

This regulation may be cited as the "University of Twente Enrolment Regulation 2015-2016”.

Enschede, May 2015, the Executive Board

Explanatory notes on the Enrolment Regulation 2015-2016:


Changes for the
2015-2016 academic year compared to 2014-2015 academic year:

1.

Tuition fees 2015-2016:

The statutory tuition fee for the 2015-2016 academic year has been set at € 1,951 by the Ministry of Education, reflecting both a rate increase and a rate indexation. As in previous years, the tuition fees for external students and part-time students have been adjusted according to the same principle.

From study year 2013-2014 students with an enrolment in a pre-master programme pay an amount per EC. The amount per EC is derived from the statutory tuition fee: €1,951 per 60 EC and applies to all students regardless of nationality.
In line with the agreements made between the 3TU institutions on tuition fees for programmes in the exact sciences, the tuition fees for humanities programmes at the University of Twente have been similarly adjusted. For current students (enrolled in 2011-2012 or earlier) there are transitional provisions, they pay the institutional rate of 2011-2012 + index (according to Article 12, paragraph 4).

Other important changes of the enrolment regulation of the University of Twente for 2015-2016 compared to 2014-2015:

2.

Regulation relating to specialisation activities (Article 3-6)

The ministry of Education, Culture and Science (in Dutch: OCW) included two measurements in the ACT with the aim to improve the study choice of to prospective students: Study specialisation activities and the early application deadline. These measurements apply to prospective bachelor students whose previous education was in the Netherlands applying for the bachelor's programme in question for the first time. The early application deadline is 1 May. Students who apply by 1 May at the latest have the right to a specialisation activity. Students will not be rejected by the UT when they apply after 1 May. Participation in a specialisation activity may be mandatory. At the UT, taking part in a specialisation activity is mandatory for the Bachelor programmes Creative Technology and Electrical Engineering (both before and after the early application deadline of 1 May). After participating in a specialisation activity, the prospective student receives a specialisation recommendation. Bachelor programmes can choose their specialisation activities their selves for example a questionnaire, an assignment or a personal interview. Students who apply after 1 May are not entitled to a specialisation activity. The bachelor programme determines if the prospective student can participate in a specialisation activity. Students who apply after 1 May will not be rejected by the UT.

3.

Intake moments (Article 7, paragraph 2)

Students who finish their UT bachelor programme during the academic year 2015-2016 can be enrolled in the master programme of their choice from the first of the month after graduating, if they meet the admission requirements. These students can follow and finish master courses then. Nevertheless, there are two intake moments for which a studyable programme is guaranteed: September and February. Students have to take this in consideration. The monthly enrolment for UT students will probably continue to study year 2015-2016. From study year 2016-2017 all the bachelor education will be converted in Twente Education Model and then the enrolment of UT students will be taken in consideration again.

4.

Number of instalments from 5 unequal to 5 equal instalments

In the academic year 2015/2016 it is possible to pay the tuition fee in 5 equal instalments. CACI, the supplier of OSIRIS, has altered OSIRIS to make this possible.

5.

ITC (Chapter 5)

The enrolment regulation and tuition fees for the enrolment of the faculty Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) are included in chapter 5 of the enrolment regulation of the UT. The enrolment regulations for the programmes of other faculties of the UT differ strongly because the enrolment regulations and tuition fees are based on financed regulations and grades, in contrast with the regulations at ITC. These regulations are not dealing with governmental financing. The enrolment regulation of the ITC are therefore included in a separate chapter.
