How are your studies going? Are you looking for an extra challenge?
If you are one of the top 10% of students in your study programme and would like to stretch yourself a little bit more, think about participating in the University of Twente’s Honours programmes. These involve extracurricular studies, and you can take part in them alongside your regular bachelor's. They are characterised by our High Tech, Human Touch approach.

There are dozens of ways to grow and develop as you progress through your regular studies. You could join a multidisciplinary student team, study, student, or sports association and organise symposia, tournaments or exchange trips. The Kick-In Introduction Week for new students is organised entirely by current students, for instance. The Bedrijvendagen careers fair, which is the largest in the Netherlands, is also organised by students. Other popular student initiatives include multidisciplinary student teams such as Solar Team Twente, where students build sustainably powered vehicles and compete against teams from other universities across the world.
