Are you a prospective, international student who doesn't meet the admission requirements? A foundation year is a possibility!

The University of Twente (UT) offers you the opportunity to take an international foundation year after which you will be admissible to our English-taught bachelor's programmes. The one-year foundation programme combines academic study, English language training and study skills to prepare you for degree-level study.

Keep in mind

If you pass the Twente Pathway College International Foundation Year successfully, you have guaranteed admissibility to the bachelor’s you have chosen before the start of the preparation year. During your Foundation Year, there will be possibilities to retake any failed exams and the support team will carefully monitor your study progress and offer guidance when required. Students are only allowed to stay in the Netherlands for one year of preparatory education. After this you need to be enrolled at a higher education institution in the Netherlands otherwise your visa to study will no longer be valid. When you do not pass your Twente Pathway College International Foundation Year successfully, there will be no option to start your studies at the University of Twente.

You are allowed to have one gap year after successfully completing your Twente Pathway College International Foundation Year. Keep in mind, that if you take a gap year, your Dutch residence permit will be revoked as you are no longer studying at the University of Twente. You will then have to go through our visa process again if you decide to join the University of Twente after your gap year.
