For some bachelor's programmes, the University of Twente has set a limited number of available places. This is called numerus fixus. The bachelor's listed below are subject to a numerus fixus. Read more on the websites of these programmes to find out how the selection of students is organised.
Why numerus fixus?
For certain programmes in higher education, more applications are received than there are places available. This is due to the limited number of study places, or because there is a threat of a surplus in a certain sector of the labour market. Students are admitted to these programmes via a special selection procedure.
