ADDITIONAL Information about Matching

The matching procedure of Creative Technology consists of the following aspects:

  • CV

    Your CV can be a simple one. Restrict yourself to at most a single A4 sheet (or only half a sheet). Please include:

    • Basic personal information (given name and surname, gender, date of birth, nationality);
    • Some details about your secondary school (type of school, subjects you chose, the year you started and your graduation year);
    • Your activities between leaving secondary school and applying at the University of Twente (if applicable)
    • A list of your activities and hobbies over the last few years.
  • Motivation letter

    Explain to us why you want to study Creative Technology. Be concise and make it personal. The intake committee already knows that Creative Technology is a very interesting programme, so you don’t have to explain that. Please tell us what makes this the best programme for you. What is your motivation for studying Creative Technology?

  • Portfolio

    Also, we request you to submit a portfolio as in images, movies, soundtracks with explanations. This portfolio will be used as a basis for assessing the match between you and the programme, though the portfolio itself is not an assessment criterion. Please submit a portfolio consisting of two sections:

    • Firstly, we are looking for things you have made or done yourself as a creative person. Technological achievements are welcome, and they may be low-tech (woodwork, LEGO) as well as high-tech (software, electronics). But non-technical achievements in, for example, music, film-making, stage play, writing, gaming etc. are important as well.
    • Secondly, we are looking for things you have encountered which are, in your view, typically Creative Technology. Have you seen a product, a website, a movie or something else which intrigued you as being an original, beautiful, useful, or promising application of technology? Then please incorporate a link, a picture or a description in your portfolio.

    The format of the portfolio is up to you, but please use a standard that both Apple and Windows can handle. Try to restrict the size to 5MB.

    You will find examples of a number of matching portfolios of current students here.

  • Reflection form

    After the matching event you’ll receive a reflection form regarding your choice of study for Creative Technology. You need to submit this form within a week. Without this reflection, you will not be admitted.

The recommendation regarding your suitability for Creative Technology will be based on an assessment of the following five criteria:


The Study Check is a recommendation, not a selection process. The result is neither binding nor can it be used as proof of admission.


Once all the required documents have been submitted (including a copy of the diploma that enables you to be admitted to the programme), you have taken part in the matching procedure and you have met other (including financial) obligations, you will be informed of the decision regarding your admission to the Creative Technology programme at the University of Twente. More information 

Please note: For international students, slightly different arrangements may apply and the documents required and deadlines may also differ. The information will be sent by email from the Admission Office and the International Office.
