Students from outside the Netherlands should have a pre-university secondary education comparable to the Dutch VWO diploma, with as equivalent Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry subjects. The Dutch VWO diploma includes English and therefore from prospective students an English equivalent is expected. As the programme is taught entirely in English, a high level of English proficiency (CEFR, B2/C1 level; minimum IELTS score of 6.0, or equivalent) is also required. If the deficiency in Physics or Chemistry is small an admission on individual basis can be considered. For more information, please contact our Admissions Office.
Are you an upcoming, international student and is your secondary education not comparable to the Dutch vwo-diploma? However, you would like to take this programme? The University of Twente offers you the possibility to take a foundation year after which you will be admissible.

If you possess a German Abitur, you can gain admission to the programme if you have studied English, Mathematics and Physics to Abitur level.
