On this website, you can find useful links at 'Links Educational Systems'. Here you can also find the links to Osiris and Blackboard. Osiris is the student administration. You are responsible for registering for each course before the start of the quartile.  

The University of Twente uses Blackboard to inform you about the content of each course. After registering for a course in Osiris you will receive access to the blackboard site of that course. Attention: some premaster courses are part of a bachelor module and you will only need to focus on the information restricted to that part, f.i. water and fluid mechanics.

What to do if you have finished your premaster?

In order to be admitted to the master you have to finish your premaster within a year, this is usually in March when the last re-exams are offered. As soon as you finish you premaster the premaster coordinator will inform the student administration that your premaster registration can be changed into a master registration.
