Over previous years we have noticed that the transition from high school to university is not always easy for students. For the science programmes it seems that students with grades higher than a 7 in mathematics at vwo level are more likely to succeed on average than those with lower grades.
Of course, it is not really about your mathematics grades, but more about whether you have a nose for science subjects. In order to answer that question, we offer you a mathematics summer course. The summer course is aimed at students who scored less than a 7 in their final school exams for the subject Wiskunde B (Mathematics B).
Strengthening the foundations
During the summer course you will work on your mathematics skills and you will learn to really understand various mathematical topics. This will be useful for the rest of your life, while also strengthening the foundation you will need to do a technical Bachelor’s programme.
You can pick up a lot during a one-week course. Based on your performance during the course, we can reasonably estimate your chances of study success. We will discuss this with you at the end of the week.
Taking part in the course
Participation includes all meals, an evening programme and lodging. During the day you will be busy studying and in the evenings you can take part in activities (such as bowling, a movie night or a sports/culture workshop).
You can sign up for the course on the Twente Academy website. The total cost is € 375. You can also do the course without the evening programme and without staying overnight, but with lunch included. Then it costs € 125. Please note that we have room for 50 people, so don't wait too long to sign up!
