Studying during the corona situation

The coronavirus (COVID-19) leads to questions about the consequences for your education at UT. Find answers or contact us if your question is not there.

What will your education look like from 1 September onwards?

Starting at the end of August, we will be opening up campus facilities again for education and research for the new academic year 2020-2021. We will provide as much contact time as is possible within Covid-19 government guidelines. Rule of thumb is that practicals, examinations and classes in which personal contact and direct interaction are indispensable, will be offered on campus as often as possible.

In this video message, University of Twente president Victor van der Chijs shares our views on education in the next study year (2020-2021). 

For first-year students

Education activities for new first-year students will be high on the list of priorities, as we believe that a warm and personal welcome is essential for the proper start of your academic career. At this stage, it appears that we are able to resume a substantial number of activities on campus. When certain programme components are not possible to be taught physically, online versions are offered. Some study programmes may offer both physical and online versions of their classes. In order to support students who are unable to participate on campus due to Covid-19 related circumstances in their country or region, we put effort to offer online alternatives if required.

Smoother transition from bachelor's to master's

If you wish to follow a UT master's after your (UT) bachelor's, other conditions apply in corona time. The Dutch Ministry of Education has opened up a more flexible rule 'BSc/MSc separation'. Read here about what it means for your situation. Or contact us to personally speak to you.

Our vision on education

Our view of the world, in which you work or will work later on, has led us to a unique vision on education - and on the kind of scientists, engineers, and professionals our future will need. We are facing challenges that are more complex than any mankind has faced before. Solving those problems calls for creative, cross-disciplinary thinking - which is why we combine technology and engineering with behavioural and social sciences. No matter which programme, training or course you follow, we strongly encourage you to cross boundaries, connect disciplines.
