The University of Twente has a wealth of active student organisations and academic associations. Every year, students organise several recurring events. On this page, you can find more information about our study/student associations.
Academic study associations
The study organisations bring together students who are following the same program of study. These organisations are closely involved in the educational programme, so that the university can keep a close eye on quality. In addition, academic associations organise several student activities: lunch lectures, symposia, excursions and more. There is often an opportunity for companies to sponsor or participate in these events.
Each academic association is run by a team of students, including one member who serves as the external relations coordinator. This person maintains contact with the business community and can tell you all about the opportunities available at his or her organisation.
