How to apply?

You decided that you want to apply for a bachelor's programme at the university of twente? Congrats!

Applying can be a time-consuming procedure. If necessary Student Services will gladly assist you further. You have to use the website Studielink to arrange your enrolment or re-enrolment at an institution of higher education in the Netherlands.

You may be admitted to a Bachelor's programme on the condition that the final exams in the relevant subjects have been passed. Therefore please know that you can apply even though you have not yet completed your degree. Check the admission requirements for a specific programme on the site of the Bachelor programme of your choice.

Below are the steps to take if you have an international degree or a Dutch HBO-Propedeutic degree. More information for Dutch students holding a Dutch VWO diploma please see our Dutch website.

You have  to go through each step for every Bachelor’s programme you want to apply for. So if you want to apply for two programmes you have to go through the steps twice.

We have prepared example documents so that you can check the type of the document you have to supply us with.. Please note that you have to submit these documents digitally. If any hardcopy documents are required  our Admission Office will notify you  and tell you where to send them to.
