Get equipped to impact tomorrow’s world at a leading technology-driven research university offering highly personalized, globally oriented education.
The University of Twente (UT) offers a wide range of high-quality – and in some cases unique – internationally oriented Bachelor’s programmes. We reward an entrepreneurial spirit and are especially strong in tackling real-world issues by combining disciplines, such as technology and social sciences. Studying on our beautiful, park-like campus will be an unforgettable experience, giving you rich international experience and prime opportunities on the job market or in the academic world.
Based in the Netherlands – just a city hop away from cities like Paris, London and Berlin – the UT provides excellent, highly personalized education in fields ranging from engineering and natural sciences to behavioural and management sciences. Most of our Bachelor’s programmes are English-taught.
We combine disciplines in innovative ways
Studying at the University of Twente is different from studying anywhere else. One distinctive feature is that we deliberately combine technology and engineering with social sciences. We call it ‘High Tech, Human Touch’. It creates exciting new crossovers in education and research. More importantly, it will equip you to work with experts outside your field to join forces in finding holistic solutions to the complex challenges of our time. We’re boundary crossers. And we look for students who are, too.
Curious? Arguably the best example of our High Tech, Human Touch approach – and of our disruptive teaching methods – is our ATLAS (Technology and Liberal Arts and Sciences) programme, a unique Honours’ degree offered by University College Twente.
Over 130 student startups on campus
Another distinctive UT quality we want you to know about is our entrepreneurial spirit. We are strong on application and always seeking to use our expertise for impacting society in meaningful ways. This means we’re keen to put the knowledge developed within our walls to use in commercially viable activities. With over 900 spinoff companies to our name, we reward innovation, creativity and the courage to step out. In fact, right here on campus we accommodate over 130 student startups. Will yours be the next?
